This month at Mothers of Daughters we’re sharing about Lessons … it’s back to school season and Stacey thought we might have some ideas, encouragement, or insight to share as we head into the new school year.
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a bit of a rough season of parenting for me lately. I’m worn thin and worn out. I couldn’t think of a thing to share with other girl moms. I’m hoping that somehow I’ll look back on this summer and see something besides too much activity and not enough grace — for my girl or for myself.
Which led me to this …
As we look ahead to this new school year, I wonder how many of you can relate? Maybe your summer didn’t exactly turn out as you had dreamed?
It is easy to bemoan what we didn’t do, what we should have done, what went wrong, and where we’ve failed. We’re moms — we’ve got that soundtrack playing almost constantly. But what if we chose a different approach? What if we looked at where we’re headed? What if instead of looking back, we look forward and focus on the lessons that really matter? Sound good?
Join me at Mothers of Daughters to see my lesson plan for me … and maybe you’ll find a little lesson for yourself too along the way.
