Today I will practice being a better mother than I was yesterday. I will have more patience and more love. I will use a kinder tone and I won't get irritated.
I love these girls more than anything, and yet, in the moment I sometimes lose it and I feel ashamed of that. Then I worry how I will possibly get any better when I am spread thinner and have another baby to share my attention and time with.
And each day, I can only vow to do better, consciously make the effort and then follow through. Practice makes perfect, and practicing a joyful heart, a patient heart, and a kind heart, will give me a heart that is joyful, patient, and kind as second nature. Every day.
And don't forget to Breath.
