Some nights it is such a struggle. Some nights I have to raise my voice and pull out my mean mommy routine to get teeth brushed and pj’s on and little ones into their beds. The stalling is just so exhausting.
Especially after a long mommy day.
A tired mommy is a frustrated mommy. Not the way I want to end the day with my children.
I want the day to end on a comforting thought, with values passed on and reminders that I love them no matter what. Thoughts and ideas that don’t make it in to the atmosphere of cleaning up the breakfast dishes, putting away clean clothes and studying for our timed times test.
That’s why I wrote, A Life of Great and Wonderful.
It’s a reminder for me.
If I have the words in front of me I have the tools to end the day in a gracious, comforting way that is soothing to my children and to me.
These are the messages I want pickling their sweet, wild minds when they are without me: in their camp bunk, or their barracks, or their dorm room.
I want to remind these sweet precious souls how much they mean to me, to our family, to our community and to the world.
