I’ve been thinking about motherhood a lot lately. About the reality of what type of mother I am and what type of mother I would ultimately like to be, for as much as I know my girls love me just the way I am, there is no denying that I am most definitely a work in progress. As I often find, there are others who are able to say what I am feeling so much more eloquently than I so I have put together this collection of motherhood quotes in the hopes they will inspire, encourage or give you something to think about wherever you are on your motherhood journey.
I can’t tell you how thankful I am for the ladies in my life who are these friends….
Amen to that!
I cannot tell you how often I feel like I am failing at keeping all of those balls in the air, and that pesky inner voice doesn’t let me forget everything else I should be doing however I choose to spend my time.
Despite the juggling I am doing my best to quieten that annoying voice inside my head and thinking a whole lot more about how I want to spend my time as a Mum. As I shared on Facebook yesterday, “There are so many things I should be inside doing right now but she (AJ) loves pottering outside. She has two pots, the smallest smidgen of water and a collection of ‘flower heads’ (aka flowering weeds) and she is so content. Pouring from one container to the next, adding a few more flowers, just ‘busy’ being a toddler. So instead I just sit and watch and enjoy.”
