I HATE FORWARDS

Yes, I know all of our family and close friends already know this, but it's one of those tidbits that we like to share with people before they add us to their "Forward List". I mean I'm sure some of what is sent is true, but for the most part I don't believe the stuff anyway (I should have saved some of my favorites from back when we did read them).

Honestly it was just too annoying to read ALL of the forwards, especially when they ended with "if you want happiness in your life then you need to send this to 10 people in the next 10 minutes"

If you are wondering where I am going with this post, don't fret I will get to my point eventually. But in the meantime... keep reading

So back to our not reading forwards, or videos or stuff sent to your ENTIRE ADDRESS BOOK.... I've found some people have started doing it on their blogs too, which I prefer, because I can just scroll past it. (Which of course is what I normally do.)

So continuing on...I was on my friend Cheryl's blog, and she had a link to a video up and said she liked it and BELIEVE IT OR NOT I actually watched it. and I loved it.

I have had several friends lately that have been struggling with this whole "am I enough" situation.

Am I a good enough Mother

Am I a good enough Teacher

Do I really make a difference?

Does anyone really care?

I have tried to find the words that would express how amazing they are, but I don't feel as if my words are enough.

So I am posting a link, basically I am posting a "forward". I don't expect you to click on it, or watch it or love it as much as I did. I am just posting it. It is as close to a "forward" as I will ever get, and I don't expect you to send it to your 10 closest friends, because it wasn't meant for them, it was meant for you.

I watched the clip...that is very inspirational! It really is hard to see the benefits of all the work moms do...but when there isn't a mom around, you can tell! I think we all go through phases of wondering if we are helping or if anyone notices the work we are doing...that video clip is perfect for times like that...thanks Jen!
