Mama Mantras

Debbie, mother of a 4 year-old son and a 6 month-old daughter, sent this mantra of patience. Debbie writes:
With every challenge I face in parenting, there is the reminder that sometimes looking at the big picture is actually helpful. Each tantrum, difficult phase, you name it, is fleeting when you think about it relative to a lifetime. I like to envison a water flowing in a river as I say my mantra to myself.
My mama mantra is:

'This will soon pass.'

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this mantra. It is another good reminder to let somethings run their course and flow on by.

This will soon pass.
