“Given the thousands of irritations in the vocation of motherhood, it’s easy for a mother’s heart to slip into that angry and frustrated place. Unless you know the antidote. Every day, I try to focus on at least three things that I’m receiving. Not only does it put me in a great mood, but I relish feeling so cherished and so loved . . . I think of the gifts I am receiving through my children, and I pause to receive them: that moment of cuteness, the sweet smile, the playful tease that leads to laughter. When I shift my focus from ‘Why is everything so irritating all the time!’ to ‘Who is giving me a gift right now?’ my world expands.
