When you don’t have it all, make peace with that.

Cooking is my worst! Although he tells me I am the best, I know he is lying because kids never lie about food! If I don’t burn the chicken my ‘mac and cheese’ tastes like nothing, or my meatballs are still raw inside! I honestly try, but for some or other reason it’s just not working out for me.

That’s Okay

I think we need to make peace with the things that we are not good with. We can’t be good at everything and then only focus on those things that we are good at. God made everyone different and we all have things that we are good at and things that we are not so good at.

Me, not being good at cooking, doesn’t make me a bad mom or wife. It doesn’t define me as a woman. I won’t waste energy on what I don’t have. Instead I rather choose to focus on what I do have. God has blessed me with amazing abilities to do plenty of other things brilliantly. If a decent meal isn’t part of that plan well then, we will all just be skinny in our house! haha

Never Give Up

Let’s try focus on the talents God has given us. Don’t get me wrong, I will never stop trying. I will prepare a meal every night, and I will always try to make it as best as I can, but I will put more energy and effort into things I know I am good at.

I can’t do everything and be good at everything, but I can give everything my best.

I’m not perfect, but my God is.


  1. Love it! I’m not the best in the kitchen either, so you’re not alone there. Doesn’t mean I’m not great at other stuff, so I’m not going to beat myself up about not being a Masterchef (although my little one seems to think I am.. most days 😁). xx


  2. You’re absolutely right. Sometime we dwell too long on what we don’t do well. It’s a time waster and an energy sapping thing to do. I literally cannot read a map. If I was dropped in the middle of a jungle with just a paper map and a compass I would start digging my grave then and there. But we have a GPS to get me to places I havn’t been before so I’m not even worried about it 😂 And I’m sure your kids still have meals that you make that are their favorites. 😘
