Happy Mother’s Day!!
On this Mother’s Day this is how I feel about being a mom….
Remember to breathe….deeply and often. Name those feelings as they fly through your heart.
When your children drive you crazy think of the warm sweetness of their bodies when they were just new. THIS TOO SHALL PASS and far too quickly. Let the dishes pile up and have a party instead. Laugh aA LOT.
Go puddle jumping and star watching. Build forts and climb trees. Spend rainy days in bed snuggling and sunny days outside adventuring. Sing loudly and off-key. Dance like MANIACS! Butterfly kisses and bear hugs cure broken hearts. Tell them they can be ANYTHING….tell yourself that too. Now believe it! And don’t forget to breathe through it all…..
And here is another quote I found recently from Donna Bell and it spoke mountains to me. Hope it does to all other moms out there….
Motherhood is a choice YOU make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own
to teach the hard lessons
to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is….
and to forgive yourself over and over again
for doing everything wrong.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!!
