Wow, it’s been one of “those” weeks. Er, couple of weeks. I have a baby that is an angel-girl by day and Frankenbaby by night. There have been some things that have happened to close friends and family recently that have been very heartbreaking to see.

Sometimes a mommy has to slip into “survival mode” and do the best she can amidst lack of sleep and difficult circumstances.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I rely on three things when I have days like these: God’s grace, love for my family, and coffee. Good, strong coffee. If you’re like me, you might enjoy this free printable artwork that I am going to hang in my kitchen.

What do you rely on when you’re going through a tough time in mommyhood?


  1. Thank you so much for posting this! I must say, this printable actually brought me to tears. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is my first time visiting your site, and this printable is *so* my life right now! With 3 boys (one that’s a baby, choosing to cut SIX TEETH at once), a mother recovering from surgery, and a Grandmother just placed in Hospice Care, I live and breathe this message.

    I stole it as soon as I dried my eyes. If it wasn’t for all 3 of these things, I wouldn’t be standing up today.
    Just wanted to say thank you for sharing – sometimes I need to be reminded that it’s not just ME living this impossible life. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Dear Stella,

    Thank you for your beautiful comment. It brought ME to tears! I hope your mom recovers well and I’m sorry to hear about your Grandma (my Grandma is also going through some scary things right now). You are SO right – I am thankful we don’t have to live life solely relying on our own strength! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
