So...words of wisdom

I have this hanging in my room:

and I love it.
My Grandma Joy made it for my mom when she was a young mother like me. I don't know how I lucked out, but this gem is now mine.

These words scroll through my mind every time I feel like I need to get away or feel like my kiddos are driving me crazy. Which they do. Why is being a momma so hard? Why is it so hard to adore and cherish each and every moment with these sweet little angels? And that's what they are - angels (that sometimes drive me crazy).

It seems like it would be easy.
It really does seem that way.
But it isn't so easy for me.

I need something like this on my wall to remind me.
It's my own personal pep talk everyday,
reminding me what really is important.

That is such a great little poem. Our kids are growing up too fast that's for sure. I noticed you were too! You have a nice little blog.

I wish that I had lucked out and had that handed down too...maybe I'll have to ask my mom about hers and see if I can get my hands on it!
