A good reminder

'Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.'

This week has been eventful, and we didn't even go anywhere. One of 'those' weeks. Having 4 kids makes any day busy, regardless if you have plans or not. Not to mention our weather has been way to cool, with light showers to dampen our spirits play time.

Then you add 1 Mom who has way too much that she needs wants to do. Toss in 4 kids who just want to have a mess fun time. Don't forget about the garden that needs major weeding. But taking 4 kids to the garden is do able not worth the extra time and effort. So now we wait for Daddy to come home, so this 1 Mom can go alone to the garden. But just like most everything: The mess will wait until I can clean it. The weeds won't go anywhere. My husband will come home late and then have to work on his truck, so he can leave bright and early the next morning, while I lay fast asleep under the covers. Dreaming of my mess and weeds!

So until then I'm going to read this quote every morning, every night, every time I get overwhelmed....
