Perspective

The hardest thing I've ever done in my life is being a mom.  The pressure is always there.  I can't let my guard down for a second.  I do.  But I shouldn't.  Because I have these 3 little moldable people, looking at me, to show them the way.  But the truth is, I get tired.  And unfortunately, after work, they get whats left of me.  And let me tell you, there's not a whole lot left. I think I've lost sight of what is important.  I've forgotten what my single most important job is here on this earth. 

My kids are growing fast.  They will all be in school all day next year.  My time is limited with them.  Its not New Years Day, or someone's birthday, or some significant event in my life.  But I'm going to make a deal with myself.  I'm going to save my best, for my kids.  I'm going to make sure the majority (I can't be perfect, you know) of the things I model for them, will be honorable, full of character, and noble.  Its a tall order.  But I only get one shot.  And they only get one mom.
