Last week I wrote about those moments when mothering is hard and no one sees. And friends, I was overwhelmed and humbled by your response to that post. Over the weekend more than 21,000 of you hopped onto this little space to read that piece. I never imagined that the Lord would allow my words to garner such a readership. Thank you for reading, thank you for sharing, thank you for contacting me and letting me know how the post has impacted you!
As I wrote—and as so many of you have agreed—mothering is a selfless act of service to our children. And the nitty-gritty, day-in-day-out tasks often go unseen by human eyes. It’s a job that rarely receives any applause, but it always demands our all.
It’s no wonder then that as mothers we constantly set our own needs aside to meet those of our children. It often happens without a second thought. I know, because I can be the worst at it.
So today I’ve got a great little giveaway that’s going to help one of you put a little bit of emphasis back onto your own physical health.
Erin Burt, creator of Handmade Yoga is giving away one green houndstooth yoga bag (value $50) to a lucky F&C reader. Featuring a classic design in vibrant green and ivory with a triple-stitched strap, the heavyweight bag also comes complete with inside cotton liner with patch pocket and grosgrain ribbon for easy closure. If you’re a yoga devotee, this bag will quickly become a necessary part of your workout gear. And if you can’t tell a downward dog from a warrior pose, this sweet bag may be just the impetus you need to grab a mat and try out a pose or two.
Simply follow this blog (you can follow by submitting your e mail address and clicking “I Want to Follow F&C” on the right sidebar; or follow on BlogLovin); then like the Handmade Yoga Facebook page. (If you already follow F&C, that’s great! Just like the Handmade Yoga FB page.) Then come back here and leave a comment telling me you did just that.
For extra entries, you can follow Faith&Composition on Instagram, like F&C on FB and share the contest to your own social media accounts. Just be sure to come back here and leave a separate comment for each entry!
The winner will be selected at random using Random.org. If for some reason you have trouble commenting (some readers encounter trouble when trying to comment via their mobile device), just hop over to the F&C Facebook page and leave a comment there letting me know. This contest will close on Sunday, February 16. The winner will be announced on Monday, February 17.
Best of luck to you, dear friends!
