One of those days

13 Aug

Sometimes I hate the mother I am, the person I am with my kids.

Sometimes I know I do not deserve them, that they are mine by pure accident.

Somedays I want to give them back.

Somedays I wonder who has the strength for this all the time, who wants this willingly.

Somedays I wonder why.

    You do know we all have those days, right? Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way, so I just thought I’d serve as company.

    I’d say that every honest mother will say that she’s had more than a couple of these days. If you find one that says she’s never felt like this, she’s lying, if not to you, to herself.

    …tomorrow is a brand new day, with no mistakes in it…

    When you fall, there’s no obligation to roll in the mud… don’t beat yourself up, just get up again, apologize, and go on. Easier said than done, I know.

    Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes…almost everyday, in fact.

    Sigh. I know those days too well. They’re rough, even when I can force myself to remember that they’re not every day, they’re only some days.
