Circumnavigating the globe

2013 May 22
by Emily Hill

I always wondered what kind of challenges I would face in life. It’s been pretty smooth sailing overall, for which I am most grateful. But this parenting thing is kind of kicking my a** right now.

Thank heavens for family, especially a sister who has a Master of Social Work, and friends who’ve been there, done that.

It really does take a village.

I’m having moments where I feel a bit lost, but in those moments I try to ask myself just what it is I’m supposed to learn. Patience is definitely at the top of the list…followed closely by humility.

This thought came to mind yesterday and I had to write it down.

I may need to tattoo it on my inner arm to serve as a constant reminder there is joy to be found in the journey.


Parenting quote


Perhaps it will bring a bit of comfort to those trying to navigate the sometimes (often) tempestuous waters of parenthood.

My advice? Stock up on Dramamine and motion sickness bags.

    Parenting is by far the most rewarding…yet most difficult thing I have ever done.

    I told myself to stop praying for patience, because that is when my kids are most naughty. :)
