Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there celebrating this weekend! I’m blessed with 3 mamas (Bobbi – my mom, Susan – my step-mom, and Janey – my mother in law) so I won’t have time to hop on here tomorrow.
For those struggling to become mothers – my prayers to you! I have so many friends who were given this path and all have gone on to enjoy the blessings of a baby – be it through adoption, infertility treatments, or other means. Keep your hope alive. I think when that baby lands in your arms you will see that the road that got you there was worth it.
I love this quote on parenthood: “Your children will become who you are, so be who you want them to be”. I think of this often and it encourages me as their role model to be kinder, more generous, and more patient when I otherwise don’t feel like being those things. I even feel inspired to stick to healthy eating habits and be active because I hope they will adopt a healthy lifestyle for themselves. So far they’re still Pirate’s Booty addicts….but maybe one day it will sink in?
So anyway – I don’t expect much down time tomorrow, but I wanted to send my love to you all because in my opinion there is no harder job than mothering. It is exhausting mentally and emotionally, but from that comes the greatest love – that of a family. SOAK IT UP this weekend. XOXOXO
And before you go… I wanted to mention a couple new pieces I just got from Sole Society! These flatform sandals are super comfy and the neutral color go with everything. I love that the straps are elastic so I don’t have to sit down and fiddle with a strap to get them on. They pair perfectly with this crossbody bag. If you bump into me around town with my kids you’re likely to see me wearing these pieces because they’re perfect everyday staples for this time of year.
Enjoy your weekend friends!!
