Moms, it is hard today. It will be hard tomorrow, to0. Different hard. But we really can do HARD things. And it is so GOOD, too. We just have to trust.
Let go of the stressing and striving. Let go of distraction and discontentment. Let go of chasing perfection. Your kids don't want perfect...they just want you.
I won't be handing out advice (mostly because I have none to give) but I hope to give you permission.
One of my main jobs as a parent is helping my children GROW UP.
That's the ultimate goal, right? To do our very best and love them like crazy and just enjoy these fleeting Kid Years as best we can???
I AM WITH YOU. To me it says 'You are smart. And beautiful. And strong. And capable. I believe in you. I am always on your side.'
I like to call the after-school hours spent driving every child around in circles to practices THE SWING SHIFT...and it is really taking its toll.
