It’s the running around, the strict schedule, the to do lists, the meal planning, LIFE….that sometimes gets in the way of me feeling the heartbeat of my family.
The heartbeat of my family….what do they need from me as their mother?
What do they NEED?
Emotionally, physically, spiritually.
What makes our family tick? What stresses us out? What can we do without? What can we NOT do without?
This time of year especially with everything we have going on I find myself loosing my grip on the heartbeat of my family. It’s on those days I force myself to shut out all the noise and whether it’s in the shower, before I drift off to sleep, or while I am giving Wit his bottle as he goes down for his nap, I stop and focus on what makes us US.
And man it’s fun to really stop and think about the dynamics of your family. Mine are pretty weird and great and amazing!
