The world is beautiful.

Guess what?

Yesterday my mom came and got my son for a sleep over!

YEAH! Party on….

My husband and I mostly slept but I can’t tell you—I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshed as a mom I feel right now. So, thank you mom.

I miss my son dearly. Even though it was only one night, but after the way I feel right now I know it was a much needed break.

Do you take breaks for yourself?

It got me thinking this morning how I need to be better at doing this.

Mom offered to take him this time, but next time I may just have to ask…because you know what>!? I NEEDED THE TIME.

The ME time.

I didn’t feel selfish in knowing he was having a blast with his G-Ma either. It was just some quiet time alone that gave me this jump start. So try it.

Call in the big guns.

The grandparents.

And be sure to take care of yourself first. It’s the greatest gift you can give others.

Today it is snowing again and I’m beginning to think that groundhog lied. However, the day is still beautiful. Because it is a fresh start. And Amen to that!

“Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” Psalm 36:5

life is beautiful

  1. I’m sure that G-ma loved that time with her grandson as much as mom enjoyed her ” me time”! Taking care of grandchildren is an indescribable blessing! You might think that she was just helping you out, but trust me, it helped her out just as much!
