There are many things to remember over the years…the tiny fingers and toes, the first words, the first bike ride without training wheels, high school graduation.  And then there are things to remember from day to day…restock the tissues and toilet paper, get one child to music lessons and another to the soccer field, squeeze in a little exercise, throw a load of laundry in the washer. Whew!

 

Know that all of us – every single mama – is trying to remember the to-do’s.  Know that all of us – every single mama – is trying to remember the bits of  the ordinary and sometimes challenging and sometimes glorious days.  Sit for a few minutes on the porch, or maybe fireside, or climb under the bed covers and soak it all in.  Remember that the work you’re doing is important.  Remember that, if today was one of those “challenging” days, that tomorrow will offer a fresh beginning.  Remember that we’re all working and loving alongside one another.
