Self Care In the Trenches: A Giveaway for a Momma’s Heart

I’ve teamed up with three other awesome bloggers for a giveaway that will bless five lucky mamas. We’ve compiled a bundle of items that will encourage you and spur you on toward self care. I want to encourage you to visit each of their blogs and add them to your regular reads. You’ll be encouraged!

As a mom of three little boys, I’ve experienced times where I’m floundering and just doing my best to keep my head above water and I’ve experienced times when I finally feel like I’ve got it all figured out. And then everything changes and I’m left trying to figure it out again. And that’s motherhood.

I’ve had seasons of waking early to get everything done and seasons where I figured out that being a night owl was the only way I could get things done. It’s constantly changing and each time I have a great tip that I want to share with another mom, I find myself trying to figure it out again.

So rather than share three big tips with you, I’m going to share three things I’ve learned in motherhood that are tried and true.

1. Remember that everything is a season and doesn’t last long. So really soak up the good stuff and take comfort in the fact that the hard stuff will be over soon. They grow and change so fast and each day brings new challenges and new triumphs.

2. Make time for friends. Find the friends that will be real with you and you can get vulnerable with. Share with them those triumphs and hard stuff and laugh a lot! Even just a ten minute phone call in the middle of the day is great self care!

3. Find an activity that is yours. If it’s spending time with the Lord and doing your quiet time, if it’s running or yoga, or just a solo trip to the grocery store where you can sing your favorite songs in the car on the way…. make that time for yourself and honor that time that you’ve carved out. For me, it’s Wednesday nights. I go to choir rehearsal at church and see some of my best friends, I get to sing and worship, and sometimes we go out for coffee after. My husband puts the kids to bed and I get to hang out with him when I get home. It’s a great weekly thing that fills me up!

The girls and I are giving away these amazing gifts and there will be five winners! Just complete the Rafflecopter below to enter!

Mother’s Day Giveaway: Tiny Tags

TheCarrolls-63

There are moments when I cannot believe that I have three children. Three! They’re my little people and so much of my life revolves around them. It’s just incredible.

And then when I see my mom with them and know that she loves them because they are amazing and sweet, but also because they’re a part of me? It just makes my heart ache a whole lot. Watching my mother love my children has been one of the greatest joys of my life.

With Mother’s Day quickly coming up (ladies, it’s time to start giving hints for what you might want), I wanted to do a little giveaway with a company that I’ve fallen in love with.

Tiny Tags makes the most beautiful silver and gold necklaces that celebrate the love in our lives. Tiny Tags celebrates children and they give back to children and mothers in need. Melissa created Tiny Tags and she is also a mom of three boys. I know how proud she is of her family because I feel the same way about mine. And as someone with three healthy children, she is deeply aware of life’s blessings, so she has chosen to give back as much as possible. I just love it.

Melissa wanted to give away a piece from the Open Loop Collection to one of you for Mother’s Day, in celebration of your little ones. It’s the perfect gift to give your mom or for your kiddos and husband to give you for Mother’s Day as a daily reminder of the loves in your life.
