This Sunday is Mother's Day so we wanted to give a shoutout to all the Moms out there. I worked in the corporate world for many years before becoming a mom and can honestly say that being a mom is a much harder job!  It’s 24 x 7 all day, every day. Even when my kids are at school, I’m still thinking about them constantly or worried about them. There are many days that I struggle to find balance between all my duties of being a mom and running a business on top of that. The underlying mom guilt is always there and I have to remember to give myself some grace every now and then and just take it day by day and sometimes hour by hour.
Someone once told me that the best gift you can give your children is TIME. I try to remember that on the days where I want to just finish up a few more things for work or load the dishes yet my daughter wants me to read her a book. They are only little once so make sure you live this special time with no regrets. Take some time for yourself this weekend and thank your own mothers and mothers-in-law.  I know my Mother’s Day gifts definitely improved after becoming a mom!  I am so thankful that I get to raise this gaggle of girls and be the one they call Mommy!
