What I Really Want to Say to Other Moms

Moms, there's this thing we do and I think it's about time we change it. We put on a fake smile and lock up how we really feel. We pass by each other every single day, yet never really speak.

It's the last day of another year gone by. How can I let it pass without reflecting on this year? As I sat down to think, certain experiences or moments didn't immediately come to mind as I intended. Instead I kept hearing the words, please slow down. My husband and I did quite a bit… Continue reading I Can’t Keep Up
