"There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children."
- M. Russell Ballard
A friend of mine mentioned she wanted to start giving "Messy House" tours - a tour of her house just as it is everyday, before the mad-dash-clean-up that happens when we know company is coming.
It does absolutely no good to compare ourselves to any other mother. Some may seem to have it all together, but nobody really does. We all have our struggles, our triumphs, our weaknesses, our strengths. We know if we are doing our best, according to our own circumstances. And that's all we can do.
