GIE #30: My Idea of 'Supermom'

What is a supermom? Who is she? There may be one image that society has created - the mom who holds a full time job, volunteers at the school, feeds her family all meals from scratch, attends her kids' sports events, has a very busy schedule, and has a spotlessly clean house. Yes, that mom that always seems to have everything done. Perhaps 'seems' is the key word here.

Well, I never wanted to be that mom since my idea of a supermom is entirely different. In fact, supermom may be the wrong word to use.

To me, a supermom is not the one who has a spotless house, but the one makes one on one time with her kids and babies despite the house not being perfectly clean.

To me, a supermom's quality time with her children involves no electronic gadgets, just her full attention.

To me, a supermom is not the mom with the biggest income, but the mom who learns to live with little so that she can spend more time with her family.

To me, a supermom is not the one with the latest wardrobe, but the one wearing humility, love, hope, and faith.

To me, a supermom does not put her children in extracurricular classes five days a week, instead she teaches them much more important skills and characteristics right in her home by being the example.

To me, a supermom is the one playing with the kids, not just standing on the sidelines.

To me, a supermom is not the one with the latest plastic surgery, but the one comfortable with her body and nourishing it well.

To me, a supermom is not the one who schedules her family for every minute of the day, but the one who lets her family just be.

To me, a supermom is not defined by what she does, but who she is. She is comfortable with silence, peace, and a 'to do' list that may never be done.

To me, a supermom does not make decisions on behalf of her children according to societal norms, but she educates herself to make the best decision for her own family.

To me, a supermom is her children's favorite teacher.

To me, a supermom puts the needs of her children first and grows out of her selfishness.

To me, a supermom has flaws that she openly admits to her husband and close friends, not the one that flaunts her 'perfection'.

To me, a supermom is not the one religiously attending every Sunday church service, but the one that makes her family and home a sanctuary and a pleasant aroma to God.

To me, a supermom is not the one who depends on herself for everything, but puts her trust in Jesus and gives her worries over to Him.

What is a superMOM to you?
