We are all flawed. We will make mistakes or respond to situations in a way that we wish we could change. The only way to grow is to let go, forgive yourself and learn the lessons. That is the path to love. When we love ourselves, we have more love to give to those we are blessed to share this life with.
I hope you all had a beautiful Mother’s Day. All us mom’s need some glitter in our lives and of course coffee. Hope Monday shines bright just like you.
Happy Monday!! Shake it up, try something new! A new workout, a new recipe, a new drive home. Let go of any weekend guilt and kick start your week.
The past few weeks my son has been home on leave for the 1st time as a Marine. I am guilty of several things on this list and today in the market I can add “hiding your tears in the market as you shop for Sunday dinner, because you don’t know when the next one is”. Parenthood is hard. Motherhood is hard. Being a Military Parent stretches and challenges you in ways you can’t imagine until you are there. You are filled with so much pride, yet this child you love more than anything puts themselves through brutal training and challenges to be ready to protect and defend at a moments notice. Our job as parents is raise our children to grow into confident, independent, young adults ready to conquer their dreams. Raising a child who’s dream is to defend an entire country and adopt a new family to fight side by side with, makes you realize you really rocked at your job, and you have a truly amazing kid. So hug your babies while they are home. Smaller or taller than you. Say ” I Love You”, listen to their stories, they are your heart. As they venture out into the world, no matter what path they follow, time is all you want. To hug, to listen, to love.
