Sweet friends,
Today, on our MOB Society Facebook page, I asked this question:

why do we feel like we're failing?

It was kind of a rhetorical question, because I already knew the answer: every single one of us. I asked for a show of likes, and so far, the number of you clicking your mouse in agreement confirms my suspicion.

Boy moms feel like they’re failing their sons. But why?

Why do you think you’re failing as a mom? Or why have you felt like a failure in the past?

Part of the answer to that question is why the MOB Society exists in the first place—to help moms find delight in the chaos of raising boys, and have more peace in their hearts and homes. The MOB Society is a response to your cries for help, and we’re so happy to be here as a source of encouragement to you every day.

But we’d still like to know why you think you’re failing? Or at least why you’ve felt like a failure in the past? I know how to answer that question for me, but I’d love to know how you might answer it, my beautiful boymom friends.

So if you’re feeling brave today…if you’re in a place where you don’t mind letting the world know you actually don’t have it all together…would you tell us in the comments why you feel like a failure? Or why you’ve felt that way in the past? We’d be so grateful for your response.

And if you’re not feeling very brave (which is totally OK, we’ve all been there), send us an email with your response to themobsociety (at) gmail (dot) com with the words “this is why” (without the quotes) in the subject line. We’ll keep the light on for you.

Remember, He sees you, He loves you, and He’s listening to the cry of your heart. Right now.
