Let’s Take Some Time for Ourselves
If loving my family means that I stop for a minute and just take care of me, then I argue with myself and avoid it and make up every excuse for why I shouldn’t do that. But it shouldn’t be that way. How do we love people if we are running on an empty tank?
Flexibility and Surrender
I don’t want to teach my children that the most important thing to me is what I accomplished each day. I want them to see that I wasn’t always so rigid that I could make cleaning spilt juice a “fun” learning moment.
I’m Having a Moment
It was okay that I was having moments, but I needed to learn how to take a mommy timeout to calm down.

Be committed to making your marriage more important than your kids! I believe it will make your household run more smoothly and model for your children what a healthy committed marriage looks like.
