Sometimes We Forget

I stayed up last night and watched a really bad movie…bad, in that it was just really not good…bordering on terrible actually.  The acting was bad…the writing was bad, but I am notorious for hanging on until the bitter end.  However, in the last few minutes of the movie, I got what I was supposed to get, and I thought I’d share because it’s so easy for us to forget what’s right in front of our faces.

“Motherhood is about accepting your limitations of time and energy which stretch beyond you even though sometimes it feels like they could comsume you. Search for and hold onto your own true self. If you lose that, what kind of mother can you be?  Things are always changing no matter how much you might want things to stay the same.  You could take a picture of your children every single day, and every single day they’d just be getting older. That’s a fact, a heart-breaking fact. It’s still a fact.

So seize your days and dwell in them fully. Look to your children because they know how to inhabit brief periods of time with extreme passion and for nothing more really than the sake of those moments. They can help you remember that. If you only slow down and let them. Feel fortunate because chances are good you actually might be.”
