This theme and these pictures are apropos to how I’m feeling as a mom this month. Max has been challenging me in new (and old, actually) ways and I keep thinking, “man, if only I knew what I was reaching for here was really what I should be reaching for.” That’s too vague, I know, but I am processing so much right now I don’t even know how to explain it other than compare it to these pictures.
Some days I grab on and it’s the best feeling in the whole world knowing that an effort paid off. But maybe I’m supposed to miss that bar sometimes, even in spite of the effort. Maybe I’m better off falling down so that I depend on the One who will lift me up again. Maybe I’d be a better mom if I didn’t think I could reach it on my own in the first place.
