A few minutes before the kids wake.
A quiet car ride after work.
Time spent on the couch watching tv after the kids are in bed.
Typing up my thoughts in blog form while sipping my favorite coffee drink.
The older I get the more I realize how introverted I am.
I love my kids but when I have moments alone to recharge, I find that I am all the more able to love them well.
I am free to:
- sit on the floor with my daughter and her dollhouse
- push my son in his swing
- read stories to my darling children
- cook meals that my family enjoys
- sing songs and answer the endless why questions coming from my almost four year old’s mouth
I am free to choose to love and affirm my children and husband.
This post is part of a 31 day movement. You can learn more about it here but the gist of it is that I take 5 minutes to write on a one word prompt that is provided following a theme that I have chosen. My theme is The Mom Life. So every post will center around my life and experiences as a mom and what comes to mind when I think about the prompt given. Hope you enjoy following my writing journey as much as I will love crafting the words.
