Feeling a little blah.
Some nights my role as a loving mother is awesome.
And then there are nights like these when the little boy drives me bananas and i don’t have patience and i am angry at myself for not having patience. Deep sigh because goodness knows, kids can push you to the brink and back and the brink and back again and again and again!
Anyway, compounded with all the craziness of the world, it’s a blah sort of night.
And it’s Friday and it’s supposed to be a good night.
I am writing to find some comfort in the familiar and things that make me feel accomplished and happy and excited, in moments WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS.
Find something, someone, somewhere, some-fill-in-the-blank that energizes and nurtures your soul. And as i am writing this and reflecting, i am realizing that this Meme i found says it all…
As much as that little boy tests my patience and my nerves (on some nights), when the parenting wall breaks and patience wears thin and angry mad mom comes out…essentially WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…i will always have him as my son. i will always love him. And he will always love me.
WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…love is what makes everything better. Being connected and belonging is what makes success in parenting possible. Knowing that by being patience, i am teaching this little person how to become a patient big person can make most our connections positive.
It gives me some comfort and joy too that looking at the positive side of what is happening in the world can help me to feel connected. Success in our humanity is only possible through connecting and belonging to this human race and this earth.
WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…i always always have my son and he will always have me. In the end, WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS…we will have love!
