Dear Mama – You. Are. Enough. #motivation

We have all been there.  We’ve all been right where you are.  Feelings of insecurities are compounded by feelings of inadequacy and the cherry on top is hopelessness.

Mama – Life. Is. Hard.

There’s sleepless nights – why didn’t anyone tell me that just because they’re not physically waking me up doesn’t mean I’m going to sleep thru the night?!?  I think I actually slept better when I was getting up every 2 hours for feedings or scary dreams.

No More Mama Drama

Drama… Drama… Drama… with a little Mama Drama cherry on top!  That’s what my yesterday consisted of.  None of this drama belonged to this mama, mind you, but somehow I was privy to drama from many outside sources.  I.  Am.  Tired.  I went to bed last night with a heavy heart and the sun rose with the weight still entangling my soul.

I have a 13 year old – so need I say more?  There’s always a certain amount of drama, but yesterday was different…  Two of my friends are at odds at each other (and one at me for Heaven only knows why…), another school mom was messaging me about something she deemed inappropriate at school, and then I walked into church last night … (looking for a safe haven and restoring of my spirit) the lady who sits in front of me also happens to work with me, I hadn’t even put my caboose on the pew before she had turned around…”You will never believe the drama at work today…”.

The Night I Fell In Love With a 13 Year Old

Have you ever known someone for so long that you forgot who they were?

I recently went on a date with this pretty cute 13 year old.  Yeah I’m 38 but I couldn’t help myself.  I’ve known this guy since he was born.  I celebrated his birth with his family and I’ve watched him grow into this spectacular young man in what seems to be a blink of an eye.  I’ve watched him take his first steps, witnessed his first bicycle ride, and yes – I was there when he scored his first goal.  I’ve watched this boy morph into a man right before my eyes, yet I had lost sight of who he really was.  He’s my son.

10 Things Your Man NEEDS to Hear From You

10 Things Your Man Needs to Hear

 

There’s a saying I’ve heard many times, “Give a man 3 good meals and sex (not necessarily in that order) and he’ll be happy”…  While true to some extent, men need much more than this.  Believe it or not ladies, deep down your man needs much of the same emotionally stability that we do.  There’s many more, but here’s a few that I’ve found will lift my man when he’s had a rough go of it!

Staging our Lives for Facebook

Comparison is the thief of joy

Life is too valuable to spend it wanting someone elses!

Have you ever been having a great day.  Life is good.  The kids, while not perfect, seem to be doing well.  The house, although not entirely clean, isn’t as bad as it has been.  Finances, well there’s not a lot extra but the bills are paid and there’s food in the pantry.  Then you make the mother of all mistakes.  You go on Facebook.
