Of all my jobs (I collect them like postage stamps) my favorite one is being a mom. I’m crazy in love with my four kids. I am NOT one of those mom’s that thinks my children are perfect by any stretch of the imagination. Instead I’m the mom that believes her kids (like myself) are completely imperfect and yet the most wonderful people I’ve ever known. I’m proud of my children…not because they are flawless, thoughtful and neat, but because they have character and they are willing to grow.
Can we talk for just a moment about this phenomenon of self care? I mean, dang, if only I had coined this phrase a few years ago I’d be riding the gravy train. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not dissing the concept, in fact I think it’s great!
