This past week has been stressful for me, but I'm so thankful that I could still phsyically complete what needed to be done. I always had to rely on others for help. I couldn't do anything on my own. As I become more and more independent, I am coming to realize that I still need to ask others for help and that's okay. It is easier for me to ask others for assistance since I am able to reciprocate. I no longer feel like I'm putting others out. Instead, us mothers are working together as a team to give our kids the best possible life. If you can, do something nice for someone without expecting anything in return. Just knowing you made someones day a little bit easier/happier is rewarding in itself.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
