Easter Reminded Me of the Miracles That Are My Children

Greetings from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! Things have been busy. I am still a working mom of three, working full time who is trying to make a difference. I do a lot of things and try to be present so that I can learn from them. I share them on this blog so that we can learn together. Below are some thoughts, hacks, and/or lessons that I have learned from navigating my world. Below is a tale of my road to becoming the mother of three. It was a road filled with joys and disappointments. However, I wouldn't giving nothing for my journey now. Here's to embracing every step of the journey, even the painful ones, and embracing the lessons learned along the way.

One Secret to Working Mom Success: Finding Love on an Ordinary Day

We're deep in Women's History Month, nearly a month post Valentine's Day, the day reserved to recognize love. That said, as humans, we need to feel seen and valued. And, we need to feel love every single day. Sometimes though, as working moms, life gets in the way. We wind up running, performing and doing. And those actions make love hard to see.

That said, if you open your eyes, you may find that you see love in unexpected places. The other day, I found love in a cup of tea...

So, last Tuesday, I went to make myself a cup of tea, which I do every day. However, that day, I found some lavender tea and lavender honey that I received from my mother on my birthday. I decided to make it. Usually, I drink unsweetened tea. That day though, I made the tea and added the honey. And, I sipped it slowly. 

I don't know if it was the heat, sweetness, or the the slow rhythm of drinking it. However, it made me feel good and made me remember the love with which it was given. And, I smiled. Isn't it fitting that in the midst of Women's History Month, I receive an unexpected expression of love from my mom?!

I am committed to opening my eyes so that I can find more examples of love.

Here's to love!
