My goodness I love these kids something fierce. Being away sure makes me appreciate being their mom even more. ❤️❤️❤️
In the busy and stress of each day, I sometimes find that I lose my joy in being mom. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom. It’s the greatest calling I will ever have. But the days can be long and hard, especially in certain phases of life. Once I’ve refilled my cup or spent a day doing something for me though, without worrying about everyone else, I always return feeling rejuvenated and ready to give more of myself.
The saying you can’t pour from an empty cup is so true. I just need to be better at finding simple ways to fill it because my kids deserve it and I’m tired of feeling guilty at the end of each day. We can only handle so much and our patience can only be stretched so thin ya know? We’re human, even though we as moms expect ourselves to be superhumans- and most days we are. We need to recharge too.
What are little things you do?
