Do you ever stop?

Do you ever just stop?

Stop the stressing and planning and organizing and cleaning and running and… just stop to look at your kids? To truly embrace their unfiltered innocence and laugh with them? And I don’t mean a giggle. I mean the real kind of laugh. The kind that you feel deep in your gut.

Forget that your hair is a mess and your face is bare. Forget that your wrinkles are loud and proud and the unflattering angles. Forget everything except the laughter.

There is nothing more beautiful than a mom willing to stop and belly laugh with her kids. Because she is showing them that no matter what, they are her joy. They are her peace.

Stop and let yourself laugh. I promise you your kids are funny.
