Moms, before you rush headlong into the day as mother, teacher, principal, judge, negotiator and referee (exhausted yet?!), you must take time for yourself first. Why? because if you don’t take care of yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually first, you will become needy…and then your kids will have to manage YOUR emotions.
The greatest gift you can give your children is putting yourself first in the morning…so that you are whole in every respect. You can handle anything that comes your way because you’ve taken care of yourself. So how do you want to begin the day? What helps you? Exercise. Read your Bible. Listen to worship music. Sit quietly. Rock on your porch and listen to birds sing. Walk your dogs and talk to God. Develop a tradition for your own peace of mind in the morning and make it a priority. What is your new morning routine going to be? Share below and give other Homeschooling Moms ideas.
