Often we have a picture in our mind of how life is supposed to work. We live entirely too long in the past and worry entirely too much on the future but we rob ourselves of the most important part of our lives — the present. We are too hard on ourselves, as people, as women, as mothers. We can’t pour from an empty cup and we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. Learn to love and take care of yourself, to teach your children how to love and how to be loved, and for God’s sake, LAUGH AT YOURSELF! Life is much more interesting if you do.
