The Perfect Gift for Imperfect Moms

It’s funny how in motherhood you find grace for your mother—and yourself. The idea of motherhood, for some, is quite different from the reality. The desire to love whole-heartedly lives in tension with the reality of loving from a heart full of holes. You can’t give what slips through your fingers—and hurt begets hurt, the cycle of pain continues. But if allowed, Jesus fills that girl’s void; supplying grace to love her own children and compassion for a mother who couldn’t give what she didn’t have. He did it for this girl, and He’ll do it for you.  

There’s no such thing as a perfect mother, but a mother who knows she’s loved much, loves her children much.
