Ever have one of those days…yes THOSE days…you know, where everything seems to be falling apart at the seams? Yep, that’s me today. Take a husband in the military with a never-ending schedule, 7 kids off from school for a long weekend and countless work deadlines to meet and you have the makings for a meltdown the likes of which have never been seen. It’s on days like this very day I am having today that I take a moment (and maybe just a bite of chocolate) and my computer of course and hide out. Right now I’m in my bedroom and have given strict orders not to be disturbed. My children like to eat, and it’s almost dinner time, so I trust my wishes will be followed to the letter. I also have to ask myself “Self, what are you thinking?”
I mean it’s one thing to take on 7 children but quite another to take on 7 children, a military lifestyle AND a home-based business! Who in the world do I think I am? I posted on Facebook earlier that God must think I’m a super hero with all of the challenges He’s throwing at me today…and that I felt my super suit was about 3 sizes too small. Guess it’s time to lay off the chocolate. Dangit! But then a friend of mine posts later, not in response to my post but just something she found interesting and insightful, “When you’re going through something hard and you wonder where God is, remember the teacher is always quiet during a test.” Wow.
God does not expect me to be Supermom…He expects me to do my best and trust Him with the rest. Ahhhh, what a load off. Now it’s time to go back out and face reality…and make dinner. Maybe I’ll take just a few more minutes in the quiet and relax first. Sounds good to me!
