10 on the 10th

Today we are joining our sweet friend, Erin @ Simple Purposeful Living, for her monthly link-up, 10 on the 10th.
Today we are sharing 10 things that motherhood has taught us!

Does anyone feel as though this is the subject that could literally go on F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
I'm constantly learning something about being a mom or momming every single day.

No day is ever the same.

It's tougher than we make it look.

It's so much more fun than we make it look.

There are never enough hours in the day for everything!

Never, ever take this task for granted. It's not guaranteed!

Faith & prayer are the best weapons I have.

Forgive yourself often.

The days are long, but the years are short.

It's the wildest ride imaginable.

There is no perfect mom out there.

This weekend remind yourself that you can never be that "perfect, pinterest-worthy" mama, but that is not who your babies need. They need you, and they need every bit of you. Relax a little through this journey called motherhood, and enjoy the moments because they are fleeting.

This weekend may we not forget those who still yearn & mourn for babies that were taken far too soon. Their hearts hurt every year, especially while we moms are busily opening gifts & being showered. Pray for them! To those who have also lost their own mama, I pray for you this weekend. My heart hurts so badly for you & the loss that you have suffered.

Happy Mother's Day weekend!
