I have two little ones at home. They are amazing! I adore them. But mom-ing is hard work. It takes a good amount of patience even on the best days and a quick-thinking, creative mind. I wouldn't trade this adventure for anything.
To all the moms out there, I hope you had a beautiful day. I hope your children had one less argument than a normal day. I hope you got a few extra hugs. And I hope you know that you are so very loved!
I'm grateful for all the big bear hugs I got from my girls today. I'm grateful for the beautiful necklace and earrings my husband got me. I'm grateful to have received my one childhood dream- to be a mom. I'm grateful to have a great system of friends and family. I'm grateful to remember that doing my best is enough. I'm grateful to be human in front of my girls both in silliness and in apologies. I'm grateful to have an amazing mom. I'm grateful for all she does for me and for my children. I'm grateful to be so close. I'm grateful for an amazing mother-in-law. I'm grateful for her amazing strength and support. I'm grateful to have had a fun-packed weekend. I'm grateful to snuggle in to wind down a little early tonight.
What is your best memory of your mom? What are you most grateful for in the relationships with women in your life?
May today remind us we are here because of amazing women. May we take the time to honor them and celebrate them more than just once a year. Have a beautiful day!
