Joyful Mothering

DSC_0338 by cherie, on Pix-O-SphereI realize my posts as of late haven't been very "joyful", as my blog suggests. But joyful mothering is something I am striving for, and you can't get from point A to point B without crawling through the mud.

Mothering a large family is anything but easy. The rewards far outweigh the challenges, but there are many challenges, just the same.

Ann Voskamp wrote about our most important days being everyday. That is what I aim to seek. Focusing on everyday---one day at a time.

My goal is to have rhythm and routine everyday - even if it's sloppy.

Unfortunately, parts, many parts, of my journey just aren't pretty. I hope you'll stick with me through the victories AND the messes along the way.
