 I received the perfect early mothers day gift from Made by Mary, it is the gold "mama"! I love it and have been wearing ever since I received it! I have been wanting a bar necklace, and this one is perfect.







Ever since I received my necklace, the song "dear mama" has been playing in my head. Everybody has their own story and struggles. It makes me think of my own mother, and all the sacrifices she made for us all growing up. She is amazing, I don't know how she does it all but she just does. I think of the many times I would give her so much grief and roll my eyes at her, but she still hugged me and kissed me goodnight. 
Not a day goes by without us talking to each other, we always FaceTime at least once a day. The other day I was telling her how tired I was, and complaining about unimportant things. Her response was "suck it up fatty". Obviously, that wasn't what I was expecting! So I stared at her for what felt like forever, wondering if she would change her answer. Who was I kidding? This was exactly what I needed to hear. She's not going to sugar coat anything, it's my mom we are talking about.
  It is easy to get in these habits of complaining or simply wanting someone to sympathize with us. I admit that it does feel good when that happens, but it doesn't change the situation. It doesn't change that I'm still tired, or whatever it is that I may be complaining about. To my surprise it did exactly what she knew it would do. It woke me up, it changed my attitude for the day. It made me realize that yes I am tired but complaining will not give me more sleep.
So here I am, telling you to suck it up. I am telling you this in the nicest way possible ;)
I'm telling you to suck it up, because I know you can do it. Suck it up because mopping around will not change the situation. Suck it up and go have fun with your kids.
Tomorrow is a new day!
