Being a Mommy is an amazing gift and privilege.
There are so many wonderful joys to have in a momma's world.
Unfortunately... being a mommy is also very hard work.
There is worry, stress, late nights, early mornings, cleaning, cooking, little privacy...
and the list goes on!
Sometimes its easier to focus on the negatives when you are tired, stressed or having a bad day.
Its easy to complain, or get upset with the kids over silly things, or take them for granted.
Or maybe that's just me??
I decided I need to stop that.
I'm not going to be a "Debbie Downer."
I want to focus more on the good, the real JOYS of being a Mommy.
Joys you really can't get from anyone else but your little blessings.
So, I sat down and made a big long list...
Which I have been sharing one or two a week through these Mommy Joy Meme posts.
I hope you find them encouraging.
Sometimes we all need a good reminder of all the things we tend to forget to appreciate.
We are on #10 today! :)
Recently at one point or another I have heard "You're the best!" from each of my kids.
Serious... hearing this makes me feel amazing!
So many times I feel like a failure and I suck as a mommy!
But when I hear this, it feels great.
What a joy that my kids love me anyways, despite all my flaws. ;)
Share with me YOUR mommy joys. :)
