If you have been following my blog for awhile you may have noticed that I take breaks here and there. I have written about it from time to time. I LOVE to save money and I LOVE to help YOU save money but I also LOVE my children and family so much and sometimes I can’t do it all at the same time so I take time to focus especially on my family, home and self every once in awhile. It is not always an easy decision I like blogging a LOT! I get a lot more instant complements and ego boosts with my blog and teaching classes than I do from folding laundry, cleaning bathrooms, and carpooling to soccer games. However I want so badly to be the BEST mom I can be. I never thought I would be a mother and to have three beautiful children, who are AMAZING, I feel so blessed! I find the greatest, most meaning ful gratification in my life comes when one of my kids gives me a sincere compliment or even a sweet hug and kiss. I know motherhood is THE most important job I will ever have and boy, is it going fast! My oldest turned 12, my 8 year old son is a busy cub scout, and my baby is going to be 6 this year. It has really been hitting me hard how fast they are growing up and I admit I feel a little panicked!
I have a really good friend, Rebecca, who sent me to a website devoted to supporting and lifting mothers. I was so excited about it I just had to share it with you. It is perfecting timing to share because they are having a give away this weekend! The website is:
