Whew. Is it over yet?
From motherhood to everything in between feels like it came today in full force today.
We made it through it with supper on the table and…miracle of all miracles…laundry caught up. I think I took it as a personal challenge by that point.
I never got a bath and didn’t get to eat lunch until 2:30, but one thing is for sure…I should sleep good tonight.
When I told The Hub I was getting a hot bath tonight, he jumped from his chair and said, “Augh! The bath water!!!”
Just a small glimpse there into an evening wreaked with enough drama for indigestion: teacher notes, missing assignments, poor memory on events (I will hesitate to say there were lies, but well, let’s just say we sat down to the supper table at 6:30 and I didn’t get to leave until 9:15).
To all the moms out there who’ve gone before me and have done the “stuffs” of this stage of family life and showed me your “days”, thank you for the tips and pointers and for just sticking it out. I owe it to you today. I’m walking in your footprints…jumping wide to do it, holding my breath, but doing my best.
Thankfully, in Him, that’s enough. It’s all I’ve got for today.
So many lessons I’m teaching the little ones around me I don’t have down myself…and I get called on it daily. Today was one of those humbling days…so was yesterday. So unfinished. Oh, Lord…”finish what you started in me”.
“He will perfect that which concerns me” (New Testament) and for that I’m sincerely grateful.
How was your Monday?
