Most mornings, before my feet even hit the floor, my thoughts dance to the reassurance that I’ll surely get to bed earlier this coming evening…earlier, at least, than the nights before!
As if you couldn’t guess, that actually never happens, but it seems to trick me enough to get my feet on the floor and moving!
One thing I’ve noticed about “Mom exhaustion” is that nobody cares…
How’s that for harsh?!
I mean, of course they care,
but when it comes to kids, their form of caring is shown in an
“Awwww your tired? ….Soooo, what’s for breakfast?” kind of way!
To be honest, even this I love…
It makes me feel hardcore and like I’ve made it as a mom.
Kids will push you to your limits
and make you realize you are far more capable than you ever dreamed! They are the best life coaches any of us could ever ask for. They make you dig down deep…real deep, sometimes… but it’s in those moments that you both discover who you are and hopefully surrender to who God has designed you to be.
I believe God has, by far, used my children the most in order to reach and refine me for Him, and I find my little personal trainers for Christ simply awesome!
Still…I do get exhausted…
and it’s these verses here that have the power to lift me up.
I write about my life's core: Jesus & my faith, my family, and the struggles I have met along the way. I figure...I hope...that if exposing my life and it's lessons learned can encourage even one person, this blog and all the hours I have spent behind this computer will have been more than worth it.
