Something I Learned About Food Stamps

Made a trip to CVS with my store credit and EBT card in hand.  Was surprised by the results.

Loving Motherhood. Really?

It is alarmingly easy to hop on and list a million things that drive me absolutely batty when it comes to my kids and every aspect of raising them.  Coming up with a million things I love about motherhood?  Not so easy.  Doesn't mean there aren't any.  Just means they aren't in the forefront of my mind most of the time.  Great things DO happen. It's just hard to focus on those times when one angel is strangling the other, or the you hear a gigantic crash followed by "Ooopsy" coming from the kitchen.  For that reason, I decided to sit down and write out a list of wonderful loving, fabulously gratifying, pride instilling moments to focus on the next time I hear the smoke alarm go off at 6 am on a "Sleep in Saturday."  I hope you can find some that relate to and use.  Better yet, I hope you are inspired to do the same and come up with a list of your own.  Be sure to print it and post it where you can see it.  Never know.  It just might save a life some day.   You're welcome.   ;0)
