Mom guilt. It is such a real thing. Now cancer mom guilt? I may have made that last one up but we will go with it. Mom guilt is already bad enough without the added stress that is cancer. Just going about of daily lives is so hard for me. I feel guilty all the time that I haven’t done enough or haven’t spent enough time with her. Cancer is making it difficult to be a mom. I need to be on the floor making memories and instead of playing, I’m in bed. I know it’s totally illogical, but I FEEL like I need to make everyday the best day ever, which isn’t a bad mind set to have, It’s just exhausting. At what point does one with cancer stop thinking like this? When the cancer is gone I guess.
These things take more time than you would think! My mom and I made prayer bracelets for each other last week and it inspired me to make more. It inspired my mom too. So we started making prayer beads. What are they? Pieces of paper rolled with scripture written on the inside. Someone on here mentioned that it’s an easy way to pray throughout the day. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be going to support a friend so it’s for a good cause! Here is the link and a preview of one of the bracelets up in my shop.
*update* we sold out much faster than I thought! We will be adding more to the shop this week! If anyone wants one made with specific prayers and sayings, I’d be happy to do a custom order so send me a message
