When I put the book down, and even after just relating to that quote, I knew I had to share my review with you.
I’ve posted about some of the feelings I’ve had as a mom in the past and readily related to some of the titles in this e-book. I found myself excited to read it once I realized I’m not alone in my feeling weary.
Some mornings it’s all I can do to get out of bed to greet my one still-tired boy and my so-energetic-that-I-have-to-make-my-stuffed-animal-continually-screech boy. Just the thought is exhausting, never mind that I know in two hours they will be off to school.
I find myself tired to the bones after they go to sleep, having little or no energy to fold the laundry, let alone focus on my husband to grow our marriage.
Are you finding yourself in the same spot these last days before Christmas? Maybe this would make a great gift to yourself?
Weary mom, please know you are not alone. This book has wonderful stories and examples of exactly what you are going through, and relates them in such a way that you can laugh. Be encouraged there are other moms experiencing just what you are going through and are sharing their stories to help you along through this weary time.
