Silent breath

Under the skin

Looking for some peace

In the busy days

Not so cold outside

Too warm inside

Looking for some happiness

Under the white sky


Saying NO all day long

Endurance and Patience

Parenting can be tough

Setting limits

Boundaries with a smile

Trying to stay calm

And feeling crap when anger strikes


Needing time to unwind

Time alone

Focusing on the good things

On the love shared

Away from tensions

Time for compassion

Towards ourselves

Towards life

Its constant ups and downs

    Hi Marie,

    Parenting is not as easy as we think. It is a 24/7 job, it is balancing between love and discipline, it is much more than just saying ‘I love you’…it is smiling and staying calm when we may be feeling stressed out. Yes it is focusing on all the right things. It is indeed very challenging.

    I am glad you are coping with all this so well and penning down your concerns in this wonderful manner. Stay blessed dear friend. Just today I have read a nice article on parenting. here is the link:

      Thanks for sharing this useful link Balroop.
      You are speaking the truth, parenting is a balance to find, teaching and educating is not the easiest part of the job. But at the same time we are learning and growing.
      Stay well and in peace.

      Some are fabulous, some are hard. We all have to deal with ups and dows. It’s part of life. Thanks for the sweet words Lisa.

      I remember my mum telling me when I was younger and could not understand why she was acting a certain way “wait till you have kids!”. She was so right Amira!
      We do learn it with time…
