Not Drowning, but Treading Water

I’m not drowning, but I’m treading water.

I’m not failing, but I’m barely succeeding.

I’m not poor, but I’m just paying my bills.

I’m not rich, but I’m grateful for all that we do have including a home, food, a car, etc.

I’m not a gourmet chef, but I’m feeding my family (sometimes chicken nuggets two nights in a row)

I’m not on top of my house cleaning, but I keep it tidy enough.

I’m not killing it at work, but I’m getting my job done.

I’m not happy all the time, but I’m content.

I’m not angry, but I’m frustrated.

I’m not present, but I’m here.

I’m not sleep deprived, but I’m very tired (all the time!)

I’m not sad, but I am very emotional.

I’m not the best mom, but I’m doing my best.
