As a mom, it's easy to become overwhelmed by all this is left undone. Since we are the proud parents parents of three more children, there are A LOT of chores that have fallen by the wayside. I won't bother to share the boring list of chores.
The most obvious sign that our to do list is incomplete are the growing weeds in the yard. And it's hard not to feel embarrassed by the state of our yard.
But when my children are playing in the yard, I forget about the weeds because they enjoy it regardless. When little hands gift me with little blossoms (from the weeds), it reminds me that beauty is found in the imperfect.
At least week's Parenting Party, I could relate to posts shared by bloggers who appreciated the positive in stressful circumstances.
