Some days are hard.
Some days make you feel like a complete fool for having thought that nothing could ever exhaust you after all you had been through.
After all you had seen.
Some days it feels like you are giving it everything you have and then some.
And you just need a minute.
And then that, just that mere thought that you need a minute to yourself, makes you feel like an ingrate.
Like, how dare you?
You have this chance.
You have been blessed!
How dare you complain about anything trivial?
You've lost that right.
Some days are a wrestling match from beginning to end.
Because there are two of them.
And one of you.
And even though they are happy, and healthy, and smiley... sometimes they can also be a handful.
Some days are like today, and you don't know how you made it to bedtime because you are just spent.
And you think, My gosh. Will tomorrow be like this too?
But then there is that moment.
When they look up at you with those big blue eyes.
And they smile.
And in that moment you know...
That tomorrow is another day.
A new day.
Tomorrow you can start fresh.
At being the best mom that you can be.
At being the best you that you can be.
Some days take a toll on you,
but in their smiles you can see the truth -
that tomorrow you will find your way.
