For the Momma Struggling with Comparison
This house is a rental, and while it doesn’t look like the kitchens I love online, it’s perfect for this season of our lives.
It’s real. It’s where I cook food. It’s where we gather at dinner time. There is a stain around the sink that won’t come off and burned on food in the middle of that white electric range. The mircrowave light comes on and off periodically and the dishwasher sounds like a jet engine.
It’s okay. I’m tired of feeling like it’s not okay or not enough.
No one made me feel that way but me… with all my scrolling and wishing that their kitchen was my kitchen…
their talents… were mine too.
I tell myself (and God) I’m not jealous… I’m inspired. And I feel Him asking… are you really? Are you inspired and influenced… or are you jealous and discontent? 🥴
I’m pretty sure that’s why He mentioned the whole don’t covet thing.
The greatest threat to what we have isn’t losing it, it’s ignoring it, while wishing for something better.
Listen to me, sister. That sweet, beautiful, crazy, intensely ordinary life of yours is really special. Stains, burns, laminate countertops and all.
