Everyday Cannot Be Beautiful

Because sometimes you have a headache. And around noon you realize that bedtime is impossibly far away and you worry that you may not make it. And you think you may never see the bottom of your laundry basket or your kitchen sink, yet you found the bottom of your mocha and your patience way too fast. You think that reading beautiful blogs might cheer you up, but they only make your day seem even less beautiful by comparison. So you grab your camera and press the shutter button a few times, hoping to capture a pixel or two of the fleeting beauty that does exist in your day.


And you allow your children to watch a few more episodes of their favorite show because you know it will make bedtime come a little sooner. And you take a Motrin and pray for a beautiful weekend.

  8. How many headaches do moms power through somehow trying to keep "it" together? At least we can take comfort knowing that we are NOT alone!

    And know that tomorrow may be easier...sunny or not!
    I sometimes tell my self it's on days like these that make me TRULY appreciate the good days!

  10. Why can't the good days take as long as the bad days? Cheers to kids TV shows and an afternoon quick nap for mom. Forget the dishes and the laundry...they never go away. Take care of your self too, a happy mom is a better mom.
