What did I do today? Well, most of my day was spent waiting for my 2 year old to pick up everything he threw on the floor. 😔 #momlife#battleofwills#stubborn#2hourslater#2yearolds#toddlers
I told my kids today that some days it appears they were raised by monkeys. Doors - cabinets -drawers left open, clothes - toys -wrappers all over, dishes left on counters and tables. We had a nice discussion on manners, responsibilities and privileges. 🙆♀️#preach#brokenrecord#repetition#mom
So much easier and quicker to pick up and close things myself but I find they really hate going back and doing it right .... 😂 #hopeful#oneday#chores#kids

Live boldly, live kindly, live graciously, live intently, live completely!!!! There are no guarantees, there will be many failures, there may be hurts and for sure there will be tough lessons. But live anyway! Love and learn from each experience, each trial, and hope against hope that at the end of it all you're a little wiser, a lot kinder and mostly at peace knowing you're giving this thing called life the very best you can. After all, what more can anyone ask of you?
I don't believe we were made to be perfect, I believe we were only made to strive toward love, hope, joy and peace. And once in a while, SMILE 😀! What a gift to be alive
