Turning My Life Right Side Up
Turning My Life Right Side Up
08/19/2013

Dear Dr Laura,

You have turned my life upside down. Well, actually, my life was upside down until I started listening to you. Listening to you has turned me the right way up. Thank you.  When I started listening, I was neither a girlfriend to my husband, nor was I a very good mommy to my kidlets. You quickly convinced me I needed to become both, and fast. But honestly, the change seemed too enormous, and I hardly knew where to begin.

So here's what I did. I started to smile. And it has made all the difference in the world. My husband used to come home to a stressed out wife who was overwhelmed with responsibilities, and who always had four million things on her mind that hadn't been done yet.

Now he comes home to a wife who is delighted to see him. Every time he walks in the door, no matter what I am doing, and no matter the "to-do" list scrolling through my brain, I put on a smile and suddenly, he becomes the only thing on my list of things "to-do" (wink wink).

My children used to have a mommy who felt unprepared to raise and mother them--a mommy who was constantly tired, and who couldn't even just keep up with them. Now, every time they wake up in the morning or come home from school, they find a mommy who is delighted to see them.

When they come downstairs in the morning, I greet them with a huge smile and a hug. And for just a moment the breakfast and lunch dishes I haven't done all disappear. When school is over, I greet them with a huge smile and a hug, and nothing else matters.

Dr Laura, thank you so much for being on air to nag me every day. You have turned me from upside down to right way up, and it has made all the difference in the world to my family. 

Rhonda
