We have days when we wake up and it is just a bad day. Nothing seems to be going right. We have days when we want to quite, need a break or just want to get away. If you have not yet felt this way then you are a a truly magical person and I need your secret. =)
Here is the truth. Being a mom/wife is HARD. I don't care what anyone says. This is a job that demands you to be so many things. A cook, a maid, a taxi driver, a nurse, a counselor, a friend, a companion, a magician, a performer, and they list goes on and on. There are days that we would like to do nothing, call in sick or have a day off. We don't get that luxury. We don't have sick days. So let me tell you something you are NOT failing! You are amazing! You are beautiful! You are a rock star! You are a daughter of God!
Growing up when I had a bad attitude or was just grumpy, my parents would tell me to head back up to bed and lay there then get up and start the day all over agin. We as adults (moms) need to do this at times as well. When you wake up with that chip on your shoulder, when everything seems to be going wrong, the kids are at each other and you can't seem to make the day go your way, climb back into bed lay there, connect with God, then get up and start your day all over again. It doesn't matter what time of the day it is, just take that moment to reconnect. Give yourself a Mommy Time Out, go ahead you are aloud.
Embrace each day as a gift, take each challenge as a growth challenge. Give your heartache, your feeling of failing to God. He will lift you up and give you the joys that are all around you. Your positive energy will rub off on your kiddos and your hubby. The atmosphere of your home will change. Enjoy this ride called motherhood. YOU ARE AMAZING!! xoxo
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands. She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
