  1. wow, thank yo so much for this pep talk! i really enjoyed it!

  2. Thank you. Loved the compass analogy.

    Did anyone else find the audio and video out of sync or was it just me?

  3. Really great message to our hearts! Thank you!

  4. Soooo inspiring!! Just what I needed to hear to keep me focused on being a happy jewish mom! I love your blog..Thank you so much!!

  5. Thank you so much!!! I feel energized from your peptalk!!! I had just been having similar feelings and thoughts, and you’ve refocused me and reminded me of what’s really important in this world. These precious Jewish neshamas are the biggest gift that we can give to the world. May you continue to inspire the Jewish women of Klal Yisrael for many happy healthy years to come!!! Thank you!!!

  6. Actually just had this conversation with someone right before I turned on your pep talk! Haha! Hashem sent you to refocus me.

  7. So first of all when I was in Seattle, I had some really good friends that were in your age group with little kids!! I invited them when I had a birthday get-together because they were some of my favorite people. Even though the rest of us were way younger, they still had so much in common with us and plus they are great for advice! No one ever felt it was weird to have them hang with us, except for the older women themselves, they commented all the time on their age!

    Also recently, while giving my toddler a bottle in her room to go to sleep in, feeling my baby inside of me kicking and having 2 kids talk quietly on the other side of the door, I realized this exact thing: Yes, I may be exhausted and drained from raising these kids, but I am exactly where I’ve always wanted to be:) That line felt like such a revelation to me and you just gave it over so nicely in your peptalk:)

  8. Thank you this was one of your best mommy peptalk!! So true! I really feel the same when i meet friends who manage a sucessful career and have children, and as a being now prégnant and 40i reàlly feel that for 15 years now i have never stopped being busy with small kids! What you say is so true but it is a level not Easy to reach! I ll do my best and remember what i heard in Rabbi Nivin ´s course: Hashem leads us in the way we really want to go!
    And next time you meet a “wonderwoman” remember your own wonderful contribution and sucessful blog! You really help us jewishmoms to see life positively
