I first wrote this post for Northwest Arkansas Moms Blog.
At the end of the day I feel like a stump. Not just any stump, I’m referring to the stump in one of my favorite books to read to my boys, Shel Silverstein’s, The Giving Tree.
The message is, ’tis better to give than to receive. I am behind that message 100% and try to instill it in my children. But the very book I read to my littles mocks me nightly. Because I am that stump.
