Today was a challenge.
My boys always seem so in tune with my feelings and energy level and have this innate ability to act out even worse on my bad days.
It's probably just because I'm not as present as a mom and it's their way for seeking attention, but it makes things rough.
And that was today.
Little M has been whining and complaining lately over everything I do--even when I try to do something extra or fun (i.e. make some fresh strawberry limeade for dinner). It's been completely deflating for my motivation as a mother. I know I shouldn't take the criticism of a 5-year old to heart... but, I do.
Anyway, so today's Joyful Moment was found early when I bumped into a couple friends at the gym and enjoyed a nice chat with them as they are preparing for a marathon this weekend. I'm so proud of them in all of their hard work and excited for their accomplishment.
And I'm grateful to be fortunate in my friendships.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and some positive feedback!
