I have never heard this statement quite like I did this day in my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I have heard these instructions many of times, but today, on this drive, it resonated. Why. Why, had I not thought of this to begin with? Why had I not even considered, how my lack of self-care was directly affecting my family. Why had I not identifies that putting myself on the back burner was limiting my ability to be the best wife, the best mom, the best friend, nurse, teacher, etc. How could I not see WHAT I was role modeling as an example for my children about self care?
You go girl. You are a force to be reckoned with. A model for all moms. You are amazing and you truly should be proud of yourself for being so incredibly giving, caring, loving and just an overall amazing mom! Don’t look around. Yes mom. I am talking about you. YOU ARE AWESOME!
Still have some wonderfully fresh green beans and tomatoes in your garden? I might secretly still be holding on to the last few moments of summer. While fall always seems to bring a breath of fresh air -- literally, I love the crisp taste of summer.
