MOMfulness Book Review
Every short chapter, on presence, attention, compassion, embodiment, sacredness, and community, is a blessing that awakens, comforts, and encourages a new day and a positive attitude. I loved reading this book, every morning for a week, as a reminder to myself that each day is a fresh start and chance to make decisions that enhance my well-being, as well as that of my children.
Ms. Roy defines MOMfulness as the "spiritual practice of cultivating a mindful, compassionate, mothering practice."
Perfection is not the goal, nor is removing the required tasks of motherhood from our lives so we can nurture ourselves. MOMfulness helps parents realize how much joy or healing can take place during our normal daily tasks by just being present in each moment and not judging ourselves, the situation, or our children!
This is a great book to share with book groups, PTAs, church or prayer groups, or just to leave on the coffee table. Everyone needs a moment of joy, kindness, and peace in their day!
