Happy Hump Day! That's right, it's Wednesday when you are in the thick of the week, shuffling kids round, getting school stuff done, figuring out weather schedules and spring sports, homework, working, cleaning, not to mention a moment to sit for a minute.
Have you ever had the day where you wish that you had someone that understood the struggles you are going through? You are stuck in the situation where you think that you are the only one that has that particular situation going on. Why we think this as mothers? Because at that point we are overwhelmed, sleep deprived, stressed and still have an ever growing list of things we have to do.
In honour of Mother's Day, you can read this book, "The Mother Letters: Sharing the Laughter, Joy, Struggles and Hope".
It is a great gift for yourself or someone else, a sister, mother, friend.
It is a great encouragement. Each letter is from someone different who has had struggle, pressure from outside or within that had not helped.
Things I love about this book;1) This was started by the husband to encourage his wife and it took off into a project of it's own
2) It is a letter/short story book, so it's an easy read
3) These are real women, writers, and bloggers that are coming together to inspire
4) They are real stories from mums, some good and ugly
5) You don't have to read it all at once, you can break it into parts
6) Portable and small to fit into my bag
7) The names and social media accounts for the bloggers are on there if I want to follow them
In a world where we are divided between politics, talks about racial differences (which recently was a hot heated debated going on between a few parents), clothes and jewelry, packing and moving, judging each other's schooling decisions, making sure dinner is on the table, what sports they are in, etc etc. We can look at all the differences we have, or we can unite as parents/mums and look out for each other.
I think this is a good and stark reminder what we have gotten lost in and what we really have in common. If you have a mother, sister, teacher, friend who would benefit from this- you should get this as a present for them for Mother's Day!
Buy it here on Amazon as a gift- you won't regret it!
