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!!
Spring was in a full swing when we landed in Atlanta last week for our Spring Break. The flowers were in full bloom (and the pollen too). I was in love with all the flowers too and found myself clicking my camera left and right. Here are just a few photo’s from our trip….Happy Spring!!
On our trip we when to the Botanical Gardens, simply beautiful. A must visit if you are in Atlanta in the spring. One of our favorite parts of the garden was walking through the orchid houses. Here is just a few of the dozen photo’s I took of orchids alone.
I love spring!!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!
This post is going to be very random as I just need to just write….or type in this case. My head is a spinning mess as I ponder what direction I should be taking right now in my life. Ok, let me step back. Life is good don’t get me wrong. I have a great family, a roof over my head, and I have my health. What I’m really talking about is what should I be doing? I’m in this rut in my career. I find myself hating going to work every day. It doesn’t bring me the same joy it once did. Oh yes, I probably shouldn’t be typing these words since I do have co-workers who read my blog. But seriously I have to get this off my chest. Shouldn’t you be doing something you love? Something that has a purpose? And that you wake up excited to do? YES!!! 100 times YES! So with that being said that is why my mind is spinning messing! And I’m left with the question “what should I do”. So on a piece of paper I wrote down the things I love, which were….
Cooking/Baking – Duh!
Blogging – the place I get to be creative
So what do I do with all that? I’ve tossed around many ideas in my head, but this is the year I make changes. I need to! Not only for me but for my family because being unhappy in a place where I spend most of my time is running over into my family life. NOT GOOD!
So here is to figuring it all out. And for finding that happiness!
Any of you have any ideas for me?
Thanks for letting me vent. This post may come back in bite me in the rear…..but honestly I don’t care. This is my space in this world to have my freedom of speech! So here is to freedom too!!
I’m thankful for many things….so much that I couldn’t put them all above. Thank you to everyone for being such great readers! I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!! And I hope you have a very special day with those you love!!!
