Ah, Tennis!

I have missed tennis so much. Our team plays together through November and then we meet back up again after the holidays. When we take time off I feel out of sorts and funky. When I am playing I feel so much more put together. Ah tennis...how I love it!

So today was a rare treat. The temperatures were in the mid 70's and a few of us got together and played tennis outside. Talk about feeling put together. I couldn't be more put together if I tried today. I think as Mama's we neglect ourselves too much and we need to make sure to take care of ourselves because when we take care of ourselves we take better care of our families. I came off the courts today in a great mood and ready to tackle all of the challenges of being a beck and call mama. I am on top of the world today!

We mamas have to find what have to find some outlet, some way to take care of ourselves so we can be the best mamas we can be. Mamas are kind of like tea cups. Gorgeous to look at, wonderful to hold, warm when full and sweet as sweet can be when sipped. When our cups are empty we can't fill anyone elses. When our cups are empty they are in jeopardy of cracking. We need to make sure to keep our cups filled so we don't crack and we can always fill others cups. My outlet for keeping my cup full is playing tennis.

I play tennis for the love of my children...
