Quotes for a Weary Mom Part 2

JMJ130  *Although it has been mainly a pleasant journey writing about this academic year, journaling every day has been more tedious than what I had anticipated, especially at this point.  The pot of gold at the end of the academic rainbow is not within reach, and I am getting weary for it.

when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad…
you should do what I do!
