Life has had me rollicking back and forth. I am exhausted! The day-to-day struggle of working full-time, trying to be a full-time mother, wife daughter, sister and friend leaves be utterly exhausted.

Sometimes, I am so utterly exhausted and frustrated because I do not have enough time to complete things that I start. I feel like I do things half-assed. And that frustrates me. Life is too hectic and I am constantly running to do 8 million things to make many people happy.

But with all that is not quite right in my life, and as exhausted and I sometimes am. I simply love my family. My children bring me such sweet joy and make my heart swell with love. I love listening to them unravel their little worlds.

They are my incredible miracles and they keep the miracle of love in my heart. I am blessed to be the mother of these children.

I just hope that I never let them down.
