Another week....Mamavation Monday

What a week... Probably no different than any other week I've had lately. I feel like I am just cruising through, and I have been hitting road blocks and bumps lately!! From a broken washer to a broken vacuum.....And a torn spirit. I look to my kids for motivation all the time. My 8 year old has pulled me through these past couple weeks. When she started school this year she was behind...way behind!! She was discouraged no matter what we tried her hopes weren't high. Then these past two weeks a new child has appeared, she is motivated and now up to level in every subject. Coming home everyday is a full report, with a smile I might add. I asked her what changed, and she told me," Mom, I thought hard and realized if I wanted to do better, I had to do it." She then went on," Change is something you have to do on your own. No one can make you change but yourself. Its true what you say hard work really pays off , Mom." I left our conversation with tears in my eyes, my 8 year old had just learned a lesson that has taken my whole life to try and accomplish. So here's to hard work ,this week and every week to come!!
