Mindful Mothering

      53 Comments on Mindful Mothering

I was enjoying some mommy reading this weekend and stumbled upon this article from one of my favorite South African magazines, YOUR FAMILY. With just over 2 weeks to go until our little man arrives, I must admit my patience has been incredibly short, my mood dark and dreary, and my poor kids (and husband) have been the unfortunate recipients of… Read more »

Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

      8 Comments on Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

Whether you just happened to stumble upon this post or have come here from my Letters Of Lace series. Know that you are in the company of a good friend! There are seasons in life when our acts of service go unnoticed, when our kindness is accepted but not appreciated, when “thank you” and “I’m grateful” are phrases we hardly ever hear…. Read more »

Dear Friend – With No Kids!

      51 Comments on Dear Friend – With No Kids!

A little while ago a very dear and special friend made a passing comment that she never read my blog because she wasn’t a mom. As human nature would have it, I was a tad offended. However, once I was able to get over my self pity and think a little deeper into why she made that comment, I was… Read more »

Not to mention immaculately dressed with make-up that would make the Kardashian sisters turn their heads. Something a little like this I guess… Perhaps there was a time when that was indeed the case… But… Read more »

For the NOT so SKINNY mom.

      28 Comments on For the NOT so SKINNY mom.

Here I am, sitting with a cup of coffee at 4am (because that’s what moms do, right?). Not because of kids, this time. Just silly old insomnia. So, to keep my mind off the fact that my lack of sleep will come back to bite me in the ass at some point during a rather hectic day that lies ahead,… Read more »

Admitting it, is hard!

      21 Comments on Admitting it, is hard!

Sitting here… trying to think of something to write… (cue crickets chirping!) I am at a complete loss for words, without inspiration, I have absolutely no energy, or enthusiasm to put words to paper. I remember when I started this blog 5 months ago, I promised myself I would always “say it like it is”, be honest with my readers,… Read more »
