Life as Mom has a great series of posts entitled "To Be More Joyful". I recently read all the posts and it was a good reminder to work on my joy as a parent. Often, after putting Buddy and Sweetpea to bed (and they stay there), I breathe a sigh of relief to have 'survived' another day. I don't want to just survive...I want to enjoy motherhood. I bookmarked the first page and, over the next month or so, I plan to re-read and focus on areas that need work in my life. My prayer is that God will help me to recover joy from each day and to zoom in on the good rather than the bad.
Check out all 14 posts for very practical tips to ramp up your joy as a mother!
