As another Mother's Day approaches, I find myself reflecting. Reflecting on all things "mom." From my mom and who she is to me, to me as a mom to my three little bugs, and to all the moms out there right now -- at any stage in their mom journey. All those mamas doing all the everything. You know what I'm talking about. All the things we do everyday to keep the boat afloat; to make sure our babes are growing in mind, body, and heart; to make sure all those little boxes on our daily checklist get checked off so that we can do all we need to do -- for our kids, for our families, for ourselves.
But it seems that more days than not, when I lay my head on my pillow, I may have checked off most of those boxes, but I find myself reflecting on the quality time. How much quality, unscheduled, time did I get with my kids that day? Was there any at all? Or, in our over-scheduled lives, have we eliminated space for quality time?
Oh, I work at it, I do. I make sure I sit and play puzzles with my little one and read stories to everyone before bed each night. My oldest likes to ask me his important life questions while we lay together as he falls asleep. Moments I cherish. But what if I could shut down the rest of the daily noise -- just every now and then -- and really, truly carve out quality one-on-one time with each of these precious creatures? That would be lovely. For me AND for them. Because at the end of it all, it's those tiny, quality moments of joy that create the comfort of home and create the memories.
