Today I had lunch with my friends and we talked about a discussion I had with Matthew the other day about how sometimes I feel like I'll never be able to do all those things that are required of me in addition to motherhood. My friend sent me this link to an article which helped me put it all into perspective. Don't we need a little perspective sometimes? Thanks Lynne! :)
Although motherhood is the hardest job I've ever had, it makes me sad to think one day these beautiful little people will grow up. One day they will no longer need their mommy to tuck them in at night; to kiss their owies; to listen to stories about bugs and Portuguese man of wars; to make them breakfast, lunch and dinner; or even to do their laundry. Just like Tiffany says in the above article, I chose this. In all truthfulness, there was NOTHING I wanted more. So again, thanks for the reminder and the perspective.
