BEING A THANKFUL MUM

Hello and welcome to another edition of HELP For Mums.

It’s been a busy weekend for me as it’s thanksgiving day, aka “turkey day” here in Canada – a time set aside for us to get together with our loved ones and appreciate each other – without the glitz, glam, and gift giving pressures as experienced at Christmas time.I spent the day with family and had a wonderful time eating, dancing and making memories ! I am indeed very grateful to God for my amazing family.

As I ponder on all that I am thankful for today – I can’t but thank God for my children and thank God that I am their mother!

IMG_6006.JPGLet’s be honest, being a mum can be very overwhelming! Constantly having little people following you around, demanding your attention, and needing needing your help. Hardly having any time to yourself and constantly getting interrupted when you try to get some alone time.

Motherhood is a full-time position with no days off! But I wouldn’t trade it for the world! My children are my big WHY to so much of what I do – I want to be able to be the best mum to them (God helping me). Even though I had 2 difficult pregnancies and deliveries I’m so thankful for the two beautiful lives that these experiences produced. Psalm 127:3 tells us that “Children are a gift of the Lord…”. And what an awesome gift they are! I am grateful that it was through these experiences that I found my love and passion for health and fitness and am able to share it with all of you.

Today and everyday God helping me, I chose to be a thankful mother and take Philippians 4:8  to heart “Now, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things”.
