This Mom’s Time Out


My physical body is tired, but my mind is alive with promise and ideas.

I just returned from a women’s conference and it was incredible!  The theme was all about choosing to become, about discovering our possibilities.  I feel so good.  It is this feeling that I hope to hold on to and keep despite what may come.

I am so grateful I was able to go with some girls and strengthen our relationship.  I have been to these conferences before in the past on my own.  I don’t have a problem being alone, but I have to say, it was so much more fun being there with them.  It was fun to laugh, really laugh.  The kind of laughing where your face hurts from smiling so much.  The kind of laugh where your belly aches a bit.  Funny thing is, even though it was good to get away, to have a time out…when we talked, we talked of our families, our kids, our spouses, our lives.  Furthermore, the conference was all about being a better woman, a better Mother.  How even though we have a Mother, there are other women in our lives who Mother us, who are a mentor and make an impact on our lives.  This is so true.

One of the main reasons that keeps me returning to these conferences time and again is the music.  The presentations are sprinkled throughout with musical numbers and it was magical.  The songs usually have a story to tell.  A story about a woman who seems to feel just like me.  The lyrics speak straight to your soul.  Oh how I am grateful for the power of good and uplifting music.

In the next weeks and months I hope to share with you some of what I have learned.  Honestly, I can’t wait!  It is awesome!  But as I stated earlier, I am tired and ready to see my family again.  I came home to an empty house and can’t wait to see them.  I was only gone half a day yesterday and all of today, but I feel as though I cherish them more than I did before I left.  Yes, it was worth it. {Thank you sweet husband for allowing me the opportunity to recharge my batteries.  You are a great Dad ;)}

See you on Monday,
