What to do when you let your child down
Just this past weekend, I could see it in my boy's eyes and hear it in his voice - he was disappointed in me. I had let him down. Oh, the heartache!
Surely, I'm not the only one to drop the ball? Is there a Balm for a Momma's heart in this situation? I mean, what should you do?
Here are three actionable steps to take on the path to healing and restoration:
- Humble yourself.
- Admit fault.
- Ask forgiveness .
And then, the most important part, extend Grace.
Extend yourself Grace, Momma.
Don't beat yourself up. You're not a failure.
Less guilt; more Grace.
Hug that kid. Reassure him of your love.
Shake off the dust & keep going. Hold your head high & smile - you're doing the best you can!
And that is more than enough.
Grace is the Balm.
You & me - we're in this motherhood thing together.
