Day 265.

Tuesday, September 22, 2009.

I am again feeling busy and overwhelmed and emotional. Seriously, I'm sorry readers, but this whole transition to school (and violin and ballet) and just structured-ness in general is really hard for me. It's hitting me like a ton of bricks. So for today,

I am grateful I have two wonderful children, who make me want to be the best mom I can, and who make me want to give them the world.

You both are amazing gifts from God and I'm so grateful that I even have these strong feelings, because it means I'm speechless with the privilege and responsibility that it is to be your mother. This is hard, but I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. right there with you...again and again...

    Hilary, you always have a way for putting into words what I feel (and I am sure a lot of other moms). Thanks for all the great releflections and my almost daily cry.
