I am often guilty of being a ‘cranky mother’. The constant push and pull of life leaves me feeling like I have nothing left to give and I can hear myself saying “be quiet” and “not now” all too often.
It sometimes takes something as simple as your child coming to say that their school uniform is too small or their shoes no longer fit to remind us that they grow far too quickly. I was reminded this week to take time to stop and find the joy in life. In a house full of children, as crazy as it is, there is always something to be joyful about if we pause for long enough.
