Remember the saying “Happy moms make happy families”? For me, this is truer than ever, since I became a mom. I’ve always been a big believer in self-care and now, being a first time mom, I quickly came to realize the importance of understanding how to incorporate self-care acts into my daily “busy mom” schedule.
This morning my 3 year old son, Zion walked into my bathroom and started signing “My mommy is so cool! My mommy is the best”. With a toothless smile, he stood there looking so proud. Whether he understood the meaning of his words or not, I immediately felt an immense sense of appreciation.
Im writing this while having bytes of warm mulva pudding, custard and sips of chai tea. All of them really good, especially the fond memories that goes with the pudding 🙂 As most of us, I bid farewell to 2016, thankful for all that it gave me especially the struggles that led to deepest times of growth.
