Mom guilt and thankfulness

As a mom I know there are many times when I just feel like I am not good enough, that I can never give enough and I know there are many moms out there who feel the same, over the last week especially the last few days I have felt down in the dumps, especially when it comes to special occasions I want to give my kids everything they dream of and so when it doesn't work out it's easy to feel like I could have given more or that in some or other way my kids will be affected because I couldn't give them what they wanted or what I guilt as another blogging mom termed it and it is the perfect term as a mom I don't think it is possible to not feel guilty about something or another, you work to much, you earn to little, you cannot spend the time you want to with your kids or give them the attention you feel they deserve... and so it goes on and we try to make up for it with gifts and birthdays anything in an attempt to ensure that they know you love them to the point of wanting to give them everything that they want as well as need.

Its times like this when I am so grateful for the woman I have come to meet as a blogger and as a mom on social networking the support and kind words are just incredible and always help me to see that there are still so many amazing people out there with enormous hearts of gold and shoulders for miles providing a shoulder and ear whenever one is needed, the generosity and kindness I have seen and been on the receiving line of... I just cannot begin to explain what an impact it has had on my life and my day when I need them so badly....

So I would like to say thank you to each and every one of those ladies, thank you for making my dark days a bit brighter and thank you for showing me the goodness in the world when often I just want to hide away from it with only my family , closed off from the world....Thank you for showing that as long as I give them everything I can my kids will know that I love them with all my heart and soul and that is what matters.


  1. This post has reminded me about the good side of blogging and I'm glad you reminded me about it: we are here to support each other.

  2. For sure I am so grateful for the people that have come into my life through blogging and all the love and support I have received

  3. I could not agree more! I have been in a dark place myself this past month, and the wonderful support made it that much more bearable.
