Dear Mommas

Dear Mommas,

Sometimes your best laid plans will go sideways. It’s ok. It happens to the best of us.  Tomorrow is a new day.

Some days you are so tired you can barely form a coherent thought. We have all been there. At the end of those days I just suggest going to bed. Forget the dishes for a night. Catch up with your favorite show later. Turn the computer off. Turn off the phone. And go to bed. Get as much sleep as your babies will let you have.

Breathe mommas. When the going gets tough remind yourself that this is just a season. Seasons of life change, just like the seasons of weather change.

But remember…

Sometimes the sticky hands pulling on you just want one more hug.

Sometimes whiny cranky child just needs to be held and told everything will be ok.

One day the dandelion flowers for Momma, will come no more.

One day there will be no more art work for the fridge.

One day the toy phone will ring no more.

Enjoy these days.

Even when your best laid plans get torn to shreds, your babies are still there to snuggle. They will crack you up with their latest observation, or melt your heart with their latest gift.

When you are awake on your long nights breathe in the sweet smell of your baby’s hair, and rejoice in the blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon you.

“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.” Psalm 127: 3

Much love,

From one tired Momma to another
