I recently read a very cute and funny post on Facebook that a man wrote to “help out other men” in the area of buying for your wife or lady a Christmas gift. If you haven’t read it you can find it here . I think the writer was onto something though. As wife’s and mommy’s we always put ourselves last. I have already talked a bit on the blog about this and how I struggle with “self care” and I have been working on it. I also love to buy gifts… giving gifts for me is a love language but for my husband it is not so I have to help him when it comes to Christmas and Birthday’s. I will be honest though after being together over 10 years now he is getting much much better but as a typical guy he needs so very clear big hints as to what I would love to see under the tree. I already feel incredibly blessed to have 3 healthy beautiful babies and a handsome healthy hubby and a beautiful new home so really my heart is already full I don’t need anything but since its tradition and since some people want to share love with me by giving me gifts I have compiled a list of things I would love to receive and maybe this will help you or your men as well.

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
