Memory Monday

Don't give up on me.

This layout was created in 2011. 

I was struggling then. Most of the time, I felt like I'm the failed member of the synchronized swimming team. Desperately smiling. Waving. Drowning. I kept thinking to myself - Why does motherhood has to be damn bloody hard? *sigh*

Yup. I'm that mom. I had to learn how to be a mommy *no such thing as motherhood and maternal instincts that come naturally for me*. And it wasn't easy. Not at all. 

She's gonna be 14 this year. I'd like to think I'm a better mom now, but the truth is that I'm still learning, and the process is lifelong.

LOVE looking back at your older pages ... and I can totally relate my friend ... I find raising an almost 17 year old son the HARDEST thing I have ever done! LOL!! :)

Awesome layout, Sasha, I can't believe it's from 2011! I think it speaks volumes that you continue to grow, right along with your children! :)

Oh, that is SO how I'm feeling today! So glad I came across this post:) What a lovely layout. And the fact that it doesn't come easy doesn't make you any less of a wonderful mama--most worthwhile things in life are hard.
