Ahhhh, I’m feeling VERY refreshed this week! I had some good “mommy time” over the weekend, which worked wonders on my spirit. However, on Monday I was kind of….well, shall we just say….monstrous? Seriously, it was not pretty.
But the last two days have been GREAT. Truly! And part of (most of) the reason is because I’ve finally been PRESENT with the kids. Ooh boy, I’ve been struggling with that one for a loooong time. (Stinking Mommy burnout!)
You know the saying “When Mama ain’t happy, ain’t NOBODY happy?” (no, I’m not a fan of the word “ain’t”, but work with me, here). Well, I’ve been seeing that in action. Big time. MY mood sets the tone around here. When mommy’s being a….beast, then everyone else’s beast comes out. UGLY!
Anyway, yesterday and today have been filled with giggles, tickles, kisses and hugs. What a blessing!
Oh, and I’m feeling much closer to our Father in Heaven these days (and what a week for it!).
Thank you Lord for these wonderful blessings….these answered prayers. Thank you for lifting me up out of the valley and setting me high on the mountain!
May you have a blessed and meaningful Holy Week!
