embrace the camera: sad mommies

it's thursday.
i'm late on this, but nonetheless, here.
not to be downer
but my embrace the camera for this week
is to document that mommies do cry
sometimes
or a lot of the times.
leaving lejeune
came with many mixed emotions.
and arriving in texas,
was nothing different.
sometimes mommies do cry.
and it's not pretty,
or fun,
or even something we necessarily
want to remember.
but it's part of life.
and doing it,
doesn't make us any less of a mommy.
sometimes we just need it.
and on this day, i did.
i'm here.
we're safe.
we're unpacking.
and soon we'll be back to a normal routine.
forgive me for being a slacker.
wanna embrace the camera
every thursday like me?

You're so pretty, even when you're crying! I'm sorry you were having a sad moment. I think you're amazing! I love your blog and your FB updates always make me laugh. We're lucky you're back in Texas!

Yes, even mommies need to cry. Although you look great for being in tears. I'm always a blubbering mess!

I hope unpacking and the routine gets underway soon. I know rountine is the best thing for me!

I thought you got some type of lip plumper! How do you still look gorgeous even in the midst of a crying session?

Hang in there!

Oh Jessica! My heart is aching for you. Cry your heart out...you are a beautiful and wonderful mom. I go red and puffy and it's not a pretty sight when I cry...Eck! hehehehe! It's just not the same around here without you. You are missed!

momma zen said...

Oh my, this is moving. And you are so pretty even when you are crying. I'm so sorry and thank you for sharing with us as we all can certainly relate on one thing and that is we all cry too.

You know it is good to cry sometimes. Even though we don't want to. I probably should document some of those times myself.

I hate that you are so pretty even when you are crying....

Summer said...

Even when you're crying you still look great! So happy you made it safe and sound. I love that you show life isn't always about rainbows and butterflies. Mommies have hard/sad times too and we are allowed to cry too!

I should cry more often. I hold it in too much which I know isn't healthy. Why do we think we shouldn't cry in front of the kids? We do every other emotion in front of them..ummm..yeah...maybe I will just cry next time. Hell, I wanted to cry when I saw your eyes. Peace.

Camilla said...

Maranda said...
