I am grateful for motherhood.
So grateful that sometimes it makes my heart swell up to the size of a watermelon.
I’m thankful for it despite the fact that my motherhood career took a nose-dive yesterday. I had an experience with one of my “darling” children that smacked me in the face with the reality that this motherhood thing is no cakewalk.
After I had a good cry with that particular child, I was so glad I could come home and read part of this book to perk me back up a little:
That book is a good thing, I tell you.
Each chapter is so inviting to me.Catherine is an amazing writer.
And I love Sarah Turner’s chapter.
And hey, look who else is in there…(My sisters I love are in there too, and my mom’s forward made me tear up a bit…more details about the book back here.)
Today I get the chance to give one away.
Just in time for the holidays.
Plus, there are two other bloggers giving it away, one today and one tomorrow. So if you enter all three give-aways you have all kinds of chances to be inspired (or consoled in my case) in the trenches of motherhood.
Then go prep your turkey and put on your running shoes cause tomorrow is the big day:
The second annual Turkey Trot! (hooray) Come join us if you can! (More details here.)
Oh, and Thanksgiving too :) Can’t wait.
I’ll announce the book winner on Friday morning.
