We all try our best to be Super Mom (or Dad, brother, sister, aunt, cousin etc.). We have to remember that in taking care of our loved ones we have to take care of ourselves. If I have to take my kids to daycare a few times a week, so that when they are with me I have enough energy to be the best mom I can, then that is what I’ll do. I have to show my kids that I am a strong individual that will take care of me AND them, even though my health isn’t 100%.
I was very lucky that I listened to my body and went to the doctor when I did. It may have saved my life. It my heart, I know it saved my life. Elizabeth Banks stars in this video called ‘Just a Little Heart Attack’. Watch it and think about your family. Is there something in your health that isn’t quite right? Do you have a gut feeling that something needs to be checked out? Don’t wait until it is too late. You can’t take care of your family if you are not here.
Courage, dear heart. ~C.S.Lewis
P.S. Be sure you watch all the way to the end for the cameo by Colin Egglesfield – I think it is pretty funny!
