It warms my heart that yesterdays post sparked so much discussion and emotion! Parenting can be HARD. A LOT. Some people take to it more easily than others - but I'll be honest: I have rough days more often than I'd like to admit. And it is SO easy to get caught up in the difficulty, the negativity and, at times, loneliness of parenthood.
But being able to treasure moments with my kids, like the one I shared yesterday, helps me through the tantrums and long days and harsh words and general chaos that is raising children. I need those sweet reminders so I am not overcome by it all! And not just about my children - but about my husband, family, friends and every loved one in my life.
I'd love to encourage any and all of you to begin to think through, write out and share YOUR sweet reminder moments. Maybe it's from this morning. Maybe it's from years ago. But share it - share it below in the comments section. Share it on the CSHM Facebook page. Share it on YOUR Facebook page. Share it on Twitter (use #sweetreminders). Share it on YOUR blog.
But, most importantly, share it with the ones you love.
