…….and for anyone who ever had a mom……….
Because there are days when, no matter how calm, centered, meditative you are; no matter how perfectly aligned are the stars and your chakra is bliss; doesn’t matter if you’re organized, careful, intelligent, efficient; never mind that you’re prayerful and serene; even if you swore to yourself that you would never, ever sound like your mom………life is messy and stuff happens, so this is just for you:
So take heart, moms. The baby may cry all night and the diapers are yucky and your kid’s yelling “mom, I don’t have clean clothes for school and you didn’t sign the permission form that was due yesterday” and dinner’s burnt and the house is a pig sty and no amount of concealer’s gonna hide the bags under your eyes and your hubby’s looking at you like that but all you want to do is get into your flannel jammies and fuzzy socks and be left alone………..
Life is wonderful and beautiful because the good Lord gave you the gift of today and, in a heartbeat, you would give up your own life for your family who’s driving you nuts right now.
Channel your inner Scarlett O’Hara, even if it means wrapping yourself in your living room curtains, stick out your bosom and in your sultriest southern drawl, declare, “tomorrow is another day!”
