Every so often, as my almost-taller-than-me children and I cruise the aisles at the grocery store or Target, some sweet soul will notice one of my sons sporting his favorite Maui t-shirt. They want to know: Did you vacation there recently? Once they find out we lived there, they follow-up with the same question: What’s that like?? But given the drive-by nature of grocery store encounters, we have to answer in a way that sums it all up.
So, one of us usually gives an answer along the lines of,
“It had it’s highs and lows, but we wouldn’t trade our time there for anything!”
It’s a whole lot easier to say this than go into all the details.
When I think of all that encompasses our lives as a Mama, I think the same words pretty much sum up our job title.
“It has its highs and lows, but we wouldn’t trade our time there for anything!”
If you would like a little extra something special to give your own mama or mama-mentor in your life, maybe print this off and place it in a frame or card for her?
Mama: Such a simple word for such a busy calling.
Much love to all the mamas, aunts, friends, and mentors out there who freely and generously invest in others.
Enjoy your day, friends!
