This weekend we had dinner with friends...a family who also has a 6 year-old and a 2 year-old. The difference is that while our girls have their hiccups, they usually sleep through the night nestled in their own beds while this mother is up all night with her cuties. As she was talking with me about how she feels like she is at the end of her rope, I heard myself encouraging her...begging her to find the time to go do something just for her. For me it's running and working out. Early morning sweat sessions and long Saturday morning runs give me the mental energy to be a mom...it makes my soul happy and therefore I can give to others. Whatever it is that makes YOUR soul happy, go out and make sure you do it....go walk, run, spin, knit, bike, whatever it may be!
