motherhood. it takes a toll on all of us and a night away
is nothing to feel guilty about. it’s what i refer to as
“filling my bucket”. or in other words… something
i get to enjoy. guilt-free. and tonight filling my bucket
included a nice dinner, wearing something other
than my “everyday zella pants” (the name gives me
permissionto wear them as often as i do…)
with three great friends, women, and mothers.
we have so much in common as mothers, and I
often forget that. despite our babies being different ages,
the similarities of our lives made conversation
entertaining and quite comical. we all discussed having
little ones interrupting our sleep, usually communicating
the need or want to eat. admitted to days spent trying to keep
our patience, and agreed that things rarely go
according to plan. but on the other hand, concluded
that, [motherhood, although hard and frustrating
at times, brings shining moments of joy and satisfaction.]
with all the chaos of motherhood
that call for a girl’s night every once in a while, we would
never wish these special moments away.
i’m so grateful for the blessing of being
a mother. it’s a beautiful and unique journey for each
woman filled with individual purpose and progression.
