I’m over at Mothering From Scratch today as a guest “momtor,” talking about a few lessons I’ve learned as a wife and mom. I’d like to thank Melinda and Kathy for having me over and giving me the opportunity to share my insights. Being a wife and mother is not an easy job, but there are a few morsels of wisdom I’ve picked up through the years — whether through hard knocks, or from a fellow mom-mentor — that have helped me find that state of “enough.”

Have you found that place, where despite your situation, you can still say, “my life is good”? I don’t claim to have found it completely, but there have been several moments where I’ve been able to take a step back, look at my life in hindsight and say, “My life is good. Thank you, God.” I’m not yet all there, of course: I do have those Jonah days.  But, I am learning bit by bit to suck the marrow out of life and see how to live daily with a grateful heart.  I hope you’ll hop on over to Mothering From Scratch, read the guest post, leave some love behind, too!
