As a mom, you have such opportunity, such privilege to help make a life. Yes, it’s sometimes a challenging and thankless job, but it is so worth it. Hang in there, today.

  1. So short and so simple yet so powerful. Thanks for the encouragement!

  2. Thanks I really needed this today. Gross rainy day outside and this month is going to be the tighest we’ve seen in a LONG time, and my son turns 2 at the end of the month. Luckily I’ve been picking up things over the last few months so basically all we’ll need to purchase is ice cream.

    But I needed this pick me up today to not lose sight- finish my meal planning, organizing my coupons, and I just made that charity donation that I’ve been putting off for over a week b/c I didn’t know if we could ‘afford it’. Silly of me, we can always afford to help others.

    Love your blogs and all the help you give to allow me to try to be the best mother I can. #2 will be here in Feb, and your 6 blessings give me hope that it’s still doable to be a good mother to more than 1 🙂

    Thank you.

  4. After an emotional morning and then a quick trip out to clear my head (19 year old princess issues) this is so what I needed to see to make me re-focus on what my job is 🙂 Thank you.

  6. Thank you!! We can all use fresh inspiration and a reminder of the importance of our task!

  7. Love that!! thank you!!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
