The holiday rush is on. We have planned, shopped for, cooked and have eaten Thanksgiving dinner. Since then we have cleaned up, done loads of laundry, shuttled kids back and forth and tried to think about Christmas shopping. That's what Moms do.
Today I am sharing a coffee with you just for all of you Moms out there. It is kicked up with a little raspberry liqueur, or raspberry syrup if you aren't into liqueurs.
Take a few minutes, make this coffee and just have a few minutes of quiet and enjoy your coffee, you deserve it! Most days I don't feel like I have five minutes to spare, do you get to feeling that way too?
Well I'm here to encourage you to take five minutes, really it will be okay. Maybe the phone won't ring, the kids won't holler, the dog won't beg, the smoke alarm won't go off. Yes those are all good possibilities but at least try! Promise me you will try! It will make you feel better, I know it made me feel better!
