mom lessons

as a mom, 
there was, is, and will be so much to learn.
source
no wonder i was, am, and will be sometimes clueless.
it's a role that is ever growing.
source
and each day brings new challenges.
challenges that i try my best to conquer.
source
as i wish for this in the very beginning:
source
and i say this to my kids over and over.
source

and they look at me with the crappy dinner
 after a hard day's work and say,
source
that's when one of the many moments 
the realization comes in.
source
and confirms that 
source
and 
source
so then i know that 
source


so i constantly try to teach them life lessons. 

but sometimes that backfires.
source

and that worry comes back to haunt me.

source

but i get back on that horse again and know that,

source

and i thank my own mom again and again and again.

source

and again.

source

and all the times she knew just what i needed.
source


or didn't need.

source

so as i remember her knowing this to be true,
source

i only hope and pray i pass this onto my own children:
source


and remind them to be patient, kind, and giving. 
and that when it comes to life, take your time to enjoy the small things since,
source

and with that i close and remember one more thing:
source




happy mom's day.
<3
