Mama Inspiration for the Amazing Moms!
Life with kids is tough.
It starts with this beautiful and oh so perfect tiny baby in your arms and then the challenges never end. When you finally put a frustrating phase behind you or find a good solution for the newest problem, something else just comes along.
It’s a never-ending cycle that can steal your joy if you let it. ( I so let it..)
But don’t let it steal your joy.
The funny thing about children is that as much frustration as they bring to your life, they also bring much more happiness.
Those big long-lashed eyes staring at you when you’re so sleep deprived that you think you can’t possibly go on.. those little arms hugging your leg when you feel like you just can’t take another tantrum.. the sound of laughter when you’re feeling like a failure.. the sweet warmth of a hug when you’re feeling lonely.. the sweetest dance party when you’re feeling sad.
Those precious little people who give you headaches and keep you up at night and often make you doubt your sanity also adore you and love you more than anything.
So when those crazy moments come, take a good long look at those sweet faces and try to shift your focus. Sit back and listen to the sounds of laughter, or of footsteps running up and down your hall and be thankful. I have to remind myself to do this often and I think that’s ok.
You’ve been given one of the most amazing gifts in the world. The gift of motherhood. Embrace it. It’s your journey and no one else’s.
Take a step back and see your life for what it is a messy, chaotic, crazy, and oh so beautiful thing. (I tell myself this often.)
In the difficult moments find the beauty and cling to it. And then grab the nearest kid and give them the biggest hug and kiss ever.
You’re not perfect. Your kids aren’t perfect but loving each other in this messy thing we call life is the best kind of perfection. 🙂
I understand how hard you work! And I think you are amazing!
