I realize that I have a lot to be thankful for, but, unfortunately, I don’t always focus on that. The kiddles helped remind me of this. Between work, training/running, and kids’ activities, we don’t really get to spend a lot of time together. I feel guilty about this sometimes, and it makes me feel like I fail at motherhood. But hope was restored because on Wednesday, I was “the best mom ever” according to the kids. And all it took was a trip to the local park.
They reminded me that I don’t need to spend a lot of money (or any money, for that matter) or make huge plans or take them places. What matters is we are together. Thanks, kiddles. I needed this.
