Everyday I rise with the intention of becoming a more loving and present mother. Throughout the day there are moments of both success and failure but before bed I do my best to thank God for my precious children, forgive myself and pray for another day to begin anew.
I am an imperfect parent. But I love my children unconditionally and strive to be a peaceful, present, and compassionate parent. There are setbacks, to be sure - big and small, acute and chronic. But I try to treat those not as failures, but as part of the process - the journey to being the parent I envision being.
