I was listening to the radio yesterday when Steven Curtis Chapman's "Do Everything" started playing. As I was listening, I was reminded WHY I have a yelling baby in the backseat, 
headed to Michael's office to pick him up, with groceries in the back seat. 

I know I have posts about my cleaning scheduleweekly menustime saving tipsmoney saving tips and tips on motherhood. But please do NOT get me wrong, my life is NOT all 
together! I have gone through my share of ups and downs, highs and lows, fails and redoes.

I read numerous posts and see all the perfect pictures. Of moms whose homes are completely decorated for every holiday with the latest trends, children smiling and dressed to the nines. I desire to be THAT mom, but it was so good to be reminded yesterday when this song came on the radio...

"You're picking up toys on the living room floor
for the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
and head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you
Wonder sometimes does it matter at all
We'll let me remind you it all matters just as long as you
Do everything you do to the glory of the One who made you
Cause He made you to do
Every little thing that you do to bring a smile to His face
And tell the story of grace
With every move that you make
And every little thing you do."

I need to be reminded DAILY of why I am here. I am here for my Savior. Thankfully He has given me my Baby Grace for this time. I may not the mom who has it all together, but I strive to be the mom who loves her Savor and her family more than anything.

ps. Don't forget to check out our giveaway.
