Happy Friday! I quite literally feel like I am drowning in water...my bills are piled up high, there's a lot of dog hair on the floor (who has time to vacuum?), there are piles of laundry to be folded, thank you notes that needed be written, and the playroom is a mess. Connor is quite an easy baby but it's the combination of him, my nearly 3 year old daughter, the housework, and regular PSA Essentials work combined with a lack of sleep that is really taxing! Enough woe is me - there are millions of mothers and families doing this all around the world, I don't hear a ton of complaining so I plan on being quiet about it now.
I did find this fantastic blog post that if you are a mother (or have good friends with kids), I suggest you read it. I find comfort in it. http://momastery.com/blog/2012/01/04/2011-lesson-2-dont-carpe-diem/. I like how the author is honest, she's real and she's inspiring. I have a new respect for people who have multiple children and I am sure that when my friends start having kids (who don't already have them) and I am through this difficult part, I will be there to support them. Big time. Perhaps I will send a motivational card, or a card just to say hello. Send some flowers and make sure to call. Call a lot. Even if they don't answer, I will still call. Because it's really nice to know that people are thinking of you.
Here are a few beautiful cards by our design team. If you know a friend who needs a little hello, send them a just a note card, or a hello. I bet they'll appreciate it!

I am thankful for all my friends and family who have been there for me. Now off to do some more work!
