Motherhood My Way


I would rather have moments of being less than the mother I want to be, times when my children's needs aren't met, as a result of giving them everything I possibly can and then giving some more. 

I would rather live knowing that giving deeply may cause a temporary depletion of my resources, than live with being less than the mother I want to be because I chose to put a career, my physical fitness, adult friendships or time for myself before the needs of my children.
