The Month Of Growth
April showers bring May flowers. We have all heard of this saying. It symbolizes the month of May as a month of growth. Well this May, especially as Mother’s Day approaches, all I can think about is how my babies are all growing up.
As many of my BFFs know, I am the proud Mama of 4 beautiful children. This month I will be celebrating amazing milestones for each one of my children. My daughter Alex is graduating PA School. Ethan is graduating high school. It is prom time for my daughter Grace and we begin her college tour tips. Then to close out the month, baby Cyrus is turning 3!
This is all good stuff and I know how fortunate I am. However, I will be honest, even as I write this post I wonder, “How the heck are we going to pull this all off?” I’m pretty sure I’m not the only mother that has felt this way one time or another. Each time I get anxious trying to figure out how to juggle it all, I quickly remember that somehow, we always seem to get through it. Whether we figure it out on our own, with our significant others, with our BFFs, or with the help of our own mother’s advice – it all works out in the end. That’s what we do as mothers, we make it happen no matter what.
“Successful mothers are not the ones that have never struggled. They are the ones that never give up, despite the struggles.” – Sharon Jaynes. Isn’t that the truth.
With that said, I am certainly going to be treating myself to some pampering this Mother’s Day. On Sunday, I will be spending a lot of snuggling time with the kids while eating some great food. The day before, I will be enjoying some well-deserved time with my closest friends. Each year we take a day for ourselves to laugh and relax. Not just the moms, but also the special friends that are our kids are lucky enough to call Aunts and we are fortunate to have on our side supporting us throughout this wonderful, yet sometimes, crazy ride.
