THE NEVER ENDING JOB OF MAMA. THE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, EXHAUSTING DAYS AND SURPRISES AROUND EVERY TURN.
This last week was something else. I had my daughter home sick two days in a row with some kind of head/chest thing. She still has it. She is a mad women and a crazy perfectionist when it comes to her school work. I am very thankful for that. There is just no chili time in her world…even when she’s sick.
But we both made the best of the situation. We both got no sleep at all! I had more moments than I can count that I was bitting my tongue and clinching my jaw. But by night time she looked like an angel. A small beautiful mini maniac, that I was slightly terrified of and completely in love with.
AS SHE SLEEPS SO PEACEFULLY, I SEE THE SWEET BABY THAT ONCE WAS. THAT LITTLE BABY GIRL MAY BE OLDER NOW BUT WHEN SHE SLEEPS MY SWEET BABY VISITS ME.
My Son also stayed a home day this week too. He is older (TEENAGER) so he handles himself well. I just feel bad for him when he get those horrible, painful headaches. I get them too. They are totally consuming. You just want to sleep through it because the pain is so intense. I feel for him. So I had him home too.
My Son has been a major force in my life this year. So when he doesn’t feel well..I might as well be down and out too. Having a Husband who travels 95% of the time is rough on all the family. My Son has really stepped up. He is awesome for me with house stuff and helping with his sister. He handle school and home really well! I am beyond blessed to have such a sweet, loving, kind kid. He is awesome! So smart and funny. When he doesn’t feel well it rocks us all. He’s such a trooper!
Being a mom is for sure this best gig out there. The most important and most definitely the hardest. I’ll never be prepared for all that comes our way. I’ll never do everything right but I will always try to. My love will never fade for these kid… not ever. My intentions will forever be for the very best for these beautiful loves. I love them so much!
HOW BLESSED TO SEE YOU GROW, TO SEE TO EXPLORE, TO LIVE AND LOVE. BEING YOUR MAMA IS SUCH AN AMZING GIFT.
** THIS WEEK **
I made this week. This week I wanted to be happy. I wanted to live with a little more joy in my life. It could have easily been a totally reck. “My Person” and my sister stopped speaking to my family. Both my sisters having a mess going on in their lives. We all have crap…whatever..that’s life. It’s how we react to it, right?
So I am proud of myself for sticking with my devotions, focusing on my kids and my own health. I got this… I can do it.
Next week is another week…I can do it…right?
