I was desperately wanting to get some artwork up on our walls to make our new place feel more homey. I’ve found that not having any decorations on the walls prevents me from feeling settled and having a sense of ownership in where we are living. I remembered pinning some cute printables so I waded through my Pinterest boards looking for what I wanted.
I found these ones that I loved from Over the Big Moon. I really like the bright colors and the silly puns.
But I wanted one more to go with them and I remembered I had seen a quote by Neal A. Maxwell that I really loved. Come to find out it’s more of a paraphrase than a direct quote. He used a lot bigger words and said it differently but it’s the same gist. I like to look at the quote whenever I feel like my kids are driving me nuts and I’m not sure they are taking in anything. It’s good to take a deep breath and remember that I’m in for the long haul not the short term. Being a mom is hard (sometimes impossible) but is SOOO worth it.
And I think this would make fantastic presents for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day to let those special women in your life know how much you appreciate all of their efforts.
