- When I was 27 years old, I worked full time at the hospital as a head nurse on a 20 bed orthopedic unit. My Jessie, who is now 31 y/o, was barely 2 at the time. Mark worked, so we did what everyone did, and Jessie went to a daycare.
Mornings were horrible- I would drive up and take her in, she usually cried and they would take her and I& #039 ;d feel like shit. I wanted so badly to not work, but I really didn& #039 ;t have an option. Couple this with the fact that one of my sister-in-laws always lectured me on how & #039 ;I really should stay home in the best interest of my child& #039 ; 😨😡...I always felt like double shit.
The icing on the cake, though, was on one particular stellar morning, it had been a battle getting out of the house-rushed, a crying child, traffic- you name it. By time we got to daycare I was a mess and then the icing on the cake... as we parked in the parking lot of the daycare, Jessie, instead of crying, exclaimed in that little toddler voice...WE& #039 ;RE HOME! 😳
Oh. Just Imagine. The dagger was stabbing and twisting deep in my heart. 😭😭 I cried all the way to work, all day at work and all the way home. What a loser mom I was. That was one of my lowest points and it was a moment of profound impact that I have never forgotten. If you are a mom, and you& #039 ;re looking for something different, even if you don& #039 ;t know what that looks like-let& #039 ;s have a conversation. I unashamedly will say I work for one of THE BEST companies that gives you opportunity and choices. It may not be for you and that& #039 ;s ok. Or...it may be & #039 ;that thing& #039 ; that you weren& #039 ;t expecting but is an answer to a prayer. You have nothing to lose.
My kids are grown now, and I try to live without regrets-but looking back-that is the one thing I would have totally changed. Please believe me when I say I can relate and I get it! And also, believe me when I say-- if Rodan + Fields had been around then, I would have been the first one on that train! Message me if you want to know more. NO pressure, just facts and honesty and then you can make your decision. 😊❤️ #mylife #findinghappy #rodanandfields

- Yesterday was #nationaldaughtersday and as I reflect on being a Mother to a daughter I am overwhelmed with gratitude to the Most High for providing me the opportunity to have her.
I realize that all of my kids are watching my every move and things that I do, accept and strive for they will mimic. Negative habits and traits will be picked up subconsciously... it’s my job as a Mother to provide them with much needed direction.
So as I go thru the ups and downs of life I am extremely aware and contious of figuring out ways to teach them to avoid bad decisions.
For my daughter, I hope hat she is confident and head strong enough to know her value, that she will not be easily convinced that’s she’s any less then what the creator has purposely made her and that she will love from a pure place for people but overall be strong enough to deal with her burdens that she will endure for her specific purpose! I’m grateful to give her an example of perseverance and I pray that my decisions only get better because I know her ideal base will come from the things she sees within me... #iwillsacrificeforthem #daughter #kids #mine #them #grow #learn #bebetter #live #forthem #nothingelsematters #mylife #mydecisions #gottabebetter #theyarewatching #confidence #appreciation #reallove

الله يخليـك يـا اعـز انسـان الله يخليـك يانـي بولـهـان
فـــــي غــيــابــك .. الكلمـة تعجـز فـي نحرهـا
وفـــــي قـــربـــك .. الليلـة يحضنـهـا قمـرهـا
فـــي صـوتــك دفـــا وفــي عـروقـي وفـــا .. وشــعــوري تـعـرفــه احــــــبـــــــك
احــــــبـــــــك يابـعـد كــل الازمـــان
