Words I needed to hear.

". . . I realized that spending all your energy on things you have to do makes your life disappear . . ."

Thank you, Lene.  We've never met, but I deeply appreciate your Celebratory post.

Lately, the "have to's" in life have required more hours than I have in me.  I've been depressed, exhausted, weak and a lousy  mom.  Here's to spending my life on things that bring me to life, and sharing them with my children.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.

What a great thing to remember. There is a poem that I cannot quote, (I am sure I could google it and quote it properly but I am too lazy right now), but it talks about having all these things to do like dishes and cleaning the house but nothing is as important as sitting there and rocking your baby. Dangitt now I wish I knew the poem! Oh well.
