I'll need to win the lottery to afford their therapists' bills

Without going into too much, I'll say this: I guess lots of moms feel like they're ruining their children's lives at times. Well, I feel that way sometimes too. I know my kids know that I love them. And I know that they love me. But I just wish I could always be that "good mom" that every child deserves. The mom that never loses her temper, or says hurtful things. The mom that makes her husband proud and her kids feel secure, safe and happy. But I guess that's the thing about being human...we all make mistakes and lose it sometimes. Thank goodness for forgiveness, huh? Forgiveness from our children, our spouses and from our God. Mercy is so good...I should learn to give it more freely.
