The job of “Mom” comes with an abundance of blessings and treasures. It is wonderful and rewarding and…hard. Yes, being mom is hard. While the benefits are indeed great, so are the demands. Whether you have one child or ten, you know that the moments that are yours and yours alone are often few and far between.
But I’ve found that if I don’t take a couple of minutes every day that are just for me, I quickly become overwhelmed. Whether it’s a simple cup of bubbling hot tea early in the morning before anyone esle is awake or a hot shower in the afternoon while they nap, just a few moments where I don’t have to think about anyone but myself give me the Oomph I need to make it through the long days.
And what better way to indulge yourself than with chocolate? Can I get an Amen?! 5 Minutes for Mom has teamed up with Ghirardelli this Mother’s Day to reward five of our readers with a basket filled with 100 hundred squares of chocolate.
That’s 100 moments that are all yours to indulge, relax and escape. That is, if you hide the basket well…
In addition, you can also head over to Ghirardelli’s Million Moments website where you can enter to win a trip to one of four famous squares in the world: New York’s Times Square, Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, St. Marks Square in Venice or Trafalgar Square in London.
