Mother's Day. What do moms really want?


Wonderful family Sunday, pool time with the kids.  Now I have to turn off the business mind and go to bed.  I am so excited about my new lingerie line, I keep designing and redesigning;)

What I want to know is "What do moms really want for Mother's Day?"

Ah Motherhood what to do?




So I was so excited today to take my oldest on his school field trip to the farm, I was driving and he had been looking forward to it for a week. Well, this am my youngest woke up with a runny nose, watery eyes and a not so lovely demeanor:) As I rushed around and packed last minute lunches it became apparent that I was swimming upstream, the current was speaking to me as I began to become impatient, anxious and lose my cool. I threw a comb at the window and must have screamed at Dominic to get in the car 5 times (although I wasn't yet ready and he knew that)
I wrestled with what to do as I drove the boys to French School, in my rear view mirror I could see my youngest with his big read watery eyes and red nose. Ahh I arrived and La Maitresse was already waiting to put two other kids in my car, she took one look at Nico and said "Qu'est-ce que tu fait? or What do you want to do?" I really didn't know...Dom was so looking forward to me going to the farm and I felt my mommy heart start to tear. All the cool moms we going too, I really wanted to hang out (I could hear my ego screaming)

Alas, I hugged Dominic good by and told Nico he would be spending a fun day with mama at home. We went and got hot tea and threw pennies in the fountain, we have been laying on my bed playing Candy Land and Connect Four.

I just gave him a long bath and he looked up at me with those beautiful green watery red eyes and said "Mama you are my best friend.."

I just called school and Dominic had an a amazing time with his friends, he asked if he could stay longer today....

As my big one needs me less and my little one needs me even more, I suppose I should listen to the universe whisper and realize the right choice is already made waiting for me, I just need to allow myself to move towards it

Dedication


With a heart of grace
And a mind of stone
With a touch of peace
And a word in BOLD
From a space of light
And a mind of love
From a vision of fortitude
And a purpose from above
I dedicate my spirit
My Being, My soul
To fulfill my life's mission
And let my story unfold
My place on this earth
My goal here in life
Has already been printed
Already subscribed
It is my sole venue
My undying path
My True dedication
To make impact at last
Through the eyes of my children
Through the heart of my man
I see my reflection
So clear and unmasked
I ask for your guidance
To lead me on course
To hold my heart steady
To have no remorse
I see the path clearly
Though times it can dime
I know you are with me
I will reach from within
You are there to cradle me
In times of question and grief
I need only to be quiet
To hear the true me speak
I will listen with intention
With a love open wide
I will move peacefully and slowly
On this intentional ride

Whats a girl to do?


You know it's funny. I am sitting here feeling meloncholy, not quite sure why! Oh hold on the tea is boiling! ok..well I have a lot to do business wise, but part of me just wants to cry. Not even sure why. I am missing my kids, missing some good friends and wondering if I really am doing all I can and should..I was looking for my journal but can not find it so I am going to pour my heart out here.
I am thinking of lost friends, lost conversations...I want to spend time on this earth being the best woman I can be and sometimes...well its just hard. The voice plays inside "Do they know how much I care, Do they know how much I love them? Are the people closest to me the ones I am spending my time with?...."

It;s just one of those days that I want to crawl into bed and cry with my pillow..so emotional maybe PMS;)

But you know as women we rarely give ourselves that space to do that. We are such highly emotional beings and effected by the energy and intuitiveness we feel surround us. I have my first Triathlon on Saturday, it is something I have wanted to do for years. And to be honest I am scared, that may be why I want to hide. I have not been training as much as I should and will be riding my husbands mountain bike in the race (not really Triathlon material) but that isnt the point. I just want to do it, and every part of me is fighting the fact that I want to be PERFECT when I do it. Which is the exact voice that has held me back for so many years and in so many facets. I am pushing through and growth is uncomfortable and painful. Which is where all these emotions are coming from.

Today my intention is to be present with those I love and turn OFF the business mind for a while. I want to breath deep, feel my emotions and learn and grow even more. I have asked the spirit for the fortitude to fulfill my mission and purpose in this life, I am dedicated to the journey.

I almost broke my own rule!!!


ok SO I have to be totally honest!  I am sitting here, not feeling all that hot and sexy, little drained, tired, ya know the typical mama deal, and so I called my hubbie home from work to stop by the house for a bit.
I thought I would add a little spice and we would pick a date night out of our date box, that usually gives me something to look forward to and get excited about.
So my husband comes home and I reach into the date night box...Do you know what I pulled out?
Do you know what he wrote in there?  Do you know what I am doing this Saturday night?

Freaken Golf Range?????!!!!!!!:0

and so I am schooled in my own game, time to smack on a sexy, sassy, smile and go hit some balls with my man!
