There is the house to clean, food to cook, kids to motivate to help (many times unwillingly), activities to get ready for, arguments to break up, things to buy (cue hyperventilating). Plus maintaining our home, feeding the masses (aka. my family) so that they don't become an unruly mob. Laundry (it breeds!), dishes, why so many dishes?!? On top of making the time to truly connect with my husband, disciple our children, and maybe, just maybe, shower (gasp!).
If you find me in a corner rocking and crying, just throw me some chocolate please.
Just keep breathing. Trust in the Lord. I know it's hard when, at times like this especially, all you can see is your to-dos. When everyone seems to want a piece of you. But God. Take it one step at a time. Make a list of everything you want to get done, that way it's not stuck inside your head, spinning like a top. Remember that you can only do so much, ask for help. Lower your standards if that's what you need; if something nonessential is making you a little batty, chances are it's nonessential! Give yourself some Grace!! Look into the eyes of the ones you love and remember why you're doing this. And more than anything, remember whose you are and Who you are doing this for. You are a child of the Most High God and a gift to His Son Jesus, who will never ever let you go. Beloved, He loves you, just breath.
