I just got home from the Power of Moms California Retreat last night (which was an incredible experience...more on that later), and I was SO excited to see my family.
This morning after breakfast, my girls asked if they could show me a video on Webkinz (an online world that works with their stuffed animals). At first I thought it was going to be kind of silly, but they said, "Mom, it reminds us of you and Dad. And there are little kitty cats who are just like us, and it's so sweet. You HAVE to watch it!" So I agreed.
For the next three minutes, I cried and cried. Whoever created this video did an amazing job. It absolutely did remind me of my husband and family.
Sometimes family life seems exhausting. Most of the time it's messy. My children bicker, my three-year-old dumps milk on the counter, and occasionally I wonder if I am qualified enough to do this well. But when I watch a video like this, I know it's all worth it.
