I am not a perfect mom...

I am not a perfect mom... I am not a perfect person... I am not a perfect wife... I am not a perfect daughter... I am not a perfect wife... I am not perfect and I never will be.

I am a person who tries her best to do things for anyone I can. I am a person who loves with her whole heart and for that sometimes I get hurt in return. I am a person who will give anything just to make sure her daughter has the best of everything I can offer. I do not have the perfect body and I never will... but I do have a perfect understanding of who I am and I love myself.

I will never be perfect, but then again I don't want to be perfect. I am who I am and I love me!

Honest Confession about Motherhood

Being a mother is hard work. It is not easy and it never will be. Don't get me wrong, I have easy moments. There are days that things are awesome and we have no issues or struggles. And then there are days where I get called by her school because my daughter has broken something or has fallen. We have moments where my daughter and I do not get along at all and then there are moments where we get along great. 

There are nights where they are sick and there is nothing you can do but be there for them and sometimes that is enough. There are many sleepless nights and many tears that you will go through over the course of motherhood. 

It is not a walk in the park and it is not always fun, but it is worth every second... I would definitely do motherhood all over again if I had a choice. I love being a mother and my daughter is my world!

Scariest Moment of your Life

My scariest moments of my life would be by far each ER visit I have to take my daughter to... There have been a few times over her lifetime and each time its very scary thinking my daughter is hurt and needs more help than you can give her.

There is just no worse feeling than watching your daughter go through an ER visit and be right there with her but know you can't help her the way she needs help. The cries and the looks of her being scared are enough to break me down!

Each visit we made it out just fine and with her feeling much better...

Live Life... ENJOY LIFE!

Life's Little Instructions by William Snell

Sing in the shower. Treat everyone you met like you would want to be treated. Watch a sunrise at least once a year. Leave the toilet seat in the down position. Never refuse homemade brownies. Strive for Excellence, not Perfection! Plant a tree on your birthday. Learn three clean jokes. Return borrowed vehicles with the gas tank full. Compliment 3 people every day. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Keep it simple. Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know. Floss your teeth. Ask for a raise when you feel you've earned it. Be forgiving of yourself and others. Over tip breakfast waitresses. Say thank you a lot. Say please a lot. Avoid negative people. Buy whatever kids are selling on card tables in their front yard. Wear polished shoes. Remember other people's birthday's. Commit yourself to constant improvements. Carry jumper cables in your trunk. Have a firm handshake. Send lots of Valentine's cards and sign them: "Someone things you're terrific." Look people in the eye. Be the first to say hello. Use the gold silver. Return all things you borrow. Make new friends but cherish the old ones. Keep secrets. Sing in a choir. PLANT flowers every spring. Have a dog. Always accept an outstretched hand. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Wave at kids on school buses. Be there when people need you. Feed a stranger's expired parking meter. Don't expect life to be fair. Never underestimate the power of love. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Don't be afraid to say, "I made a mistake." Don't be afraid to say, "I don't know." Compliment even small improvements. Keep your promises (no matter what). Marry only for love. Rekindle old friendships. Count your blessings. Call your mother...

Another quote I love is:

"Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book... write a good one! " - Brad Paisley
