Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what a different Mother’s Day it will be this year. Much like Easter we will be engaging in video chats with our families on Sunday to celebrate the Mom’s in our lives.
As a Mother of two little ones, I have grown so much over the past few years. I am so thankful for my children and the gift of Motherhood. Some days are tough as a Stay At Home Mom, the jobs at home can feel repetitive, however, the ability to be at home and choosing to cherish those special moments makes all the repetitive tasks worth it! It has taught me to find joy in the little things, and to rely on myself for affirmation, to believe in myself and press on with a servant heart and attitude. Even while being at home during this pandemic, I am affirmed that this is right where I am supposed to be.
Whether you stay at home, or work out of the home, a Mother’s job remains the same. To love and care for our children. If you are blessed with little ones, or your kids are grown up, I want to say to you:
Happy Mother’s Day!
These were taken last year on Mother’s Day, my kids are now, 3 and almost 5. I don’t know where the time has gone! As they grow and become more independent, I have experienced a little more freedom. No more nursing, no more diapers, the evolution of Motherhood at its best, filled with #momwins. The added freedom has allowed me to engage in creative activities. I soon realized this was not just a want, but a need. Creativity is such a wonderful outlet for me to unwind and to do something for myself.
I started Scrapbooking in 2018 and it has helped me, as a Mother, to reflect on all of the wonderful moments I have had with the kids and all of the fun things we have done. The pictures I have taken remind me of how blessed we are. It has helped me get through the hard times, and encourages me t rejoice in the good times. Looking through finished albums reminds me to continue to cherish the every day moments! We never know what tomorrow will bring. Currently, life has changed so much for us all, and it happened so fast. But one thing for certain, is that we can all benefit from cherishing the moments we have, and why not get creative in the process!
Being at home and creating is what has helped me maintain my sanity! I am so thankful to have a husband who supports my creative side and a big part of that is because he has seen what I have been able to make! In addition to my Scrapbooks, I use my Cricut Explore Air 2 to make birthday decor, cards, iron-on shirts, wood signs and more!
