“All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”
― George Washington
Mothering—it’s a beautiful gift! In the day to day, it can be easy to forget, but mothers, what you are doing has such an incredible, lasting impact. Don’t underestimate it!
And the best part? You don’t have to be perfect! The more I see of life, the more I believe that adulting isn’t about never making mistakes but how you handle those mistakes when they happen. By being open, real, and available to your kids, you are modeling invaluable life lessons that will shape and stay with them all their life.
We know it’s big job, and it’s not always easy, but it’s all so worth it!
And now, give yourself a break and relax! Moms, you need time to rest and take care of YOU! If you feel overwhelmed by the idea, check out these two encouraging blog posts that remind us why it’s okay and even important to take a little time off: Why Your Homeschool Needs a Rest Time and 10 Reasons You Can Say Yes to Taking a Break.
