As parents, we have many questions that we ask of ourselves and others about our little ones and ourselves.  Sometimes, it helps to take a step back from the situation and you might surprise yourself by discovering that the answer is right there in front of you.

Do you find it is easier to give advice to your friends about their problems and concerns, but when it comes to your situations, you feel lost?  When you take that step back from your situation, ask yourself what advice you would give a friend!

Everyone can walk away from this quote and have it mean something for them; something that applies to their life.

When I read this quote, I find myself reflecting upon myself as a mother. Parenting is challenging, in fact, I honestly find it to be the most challenging and the most rewarding job that I have ever had.

From this quote, I can ask myself two questions:

1)  Am I passionate about being a mother?
Yes.

2) Am I a dedicated mother? 
Yes.

And the combination of passion and dedication will make me the best mother that I can be!

Thank you, Nelson Mandela!  You will be missed.

 

Love and Care,
