Today’s moms are busier than ever before with the demands that they have. Their demands come from every direction: their jobs, their children’s schools, and their home lives. Quite often, the only peace and quiet mothers get is when they crawl into bed at night. And even then, the majority lay awake thinking about the next day, stressing about money, and worrying about all aspects of their family’s lives.
I have been a mother for what seems like an eternity. For me, being a mother is a wonderful gift even though sometimes, I really good use a break. When I started writing for the Examiner, I never imagined the type of issues that affected mothers everywhere, stay-at-home moms and working moms alike. For every mother, it is a balancing act and every mother questions her abilities.
Please come by and visit me my Examiner homepage and read along. Please feel free to comment with any suggestions, ideas or just whatever is on your mind. Thank you.
