The Magic Hat

Being a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a teacher, and a friend can sometimes be a very difficult job.  Did I say sometimes?  I meant to say all the time.  I am constantly asking myself this question.  How can I make time for everyone?

In my head I hear voices.  In my head I hear questions.  In my head I see visions.

What’ for dinner?

Where did you put my socks?

Can you take me to the bank?

Can you come help me?

Are you coming to my game?

Can you pick me up from school late?

Can you read this book to my class?

Can you just listen to me?

What did you think about……?

Can I go by my friend’s house?

Some days I feel like I am wearing the Magic Hat!  I don’t always know how I did it, but I make through each day with a smile!

  1. All the hats we wear can be so tiring… and joyful… and difficult… and the best job in the world… and so hard…
    All in all, I totally get it. I am mom, wife, teacher… some days are harder than others.
    Glad you make through each day with a smile! That’s what I try for too…. And don’t forget yourself in the mix!
