Reflections

Well, I made it through my first week back at work, and there are a few things that I want to remember.


1. We Serve A Faithful & Mighty God - despite no sleep going into the week, the Lord has given us plenty of rest -mainly through naps-but we'll take it!  Also, do you remember that $250 mistake I made in the monthly budget?  Well, the Lord provided a surprise $250 this week!  Yeah, it's a God thing.

2. I Enjoy Being A Working Mom - for the life of me, I did not want to go back to work.  However, I have adjusted quite well.  Despite the chaos of balancing schedules, household chores, and kiddos, I really do love my job.  I'm grateful for the outlet and for the hours.  My alarm clock may go off too early, but the hours I work combined with the wonderful childcare my kids receive makes resting up easy. Plus, having to work efficiently helps me to stay on top of things.

3. I Need To Give Myself Grace - I had these grandiose plans of hitting the gym hard this week.  Yeah, that didn't happen.  Between sleepless nights, a sick kiddo, and other responsibilities that just fell to the wayside.  I'll eventually make it back, but until that happens, I'll just take it one day at a time.

4. I Need Wisdom - The book of James tells us that if we lack wisdom, all we have to do is ask for it.  Well, I need a healthy dose.  Eli is giving us a run for our money these days.  I know his little world has been rocked since becoming a big brother, but between frequent meltdowns, regular disobedience, and a new found defiance, I need grace and I need to extend it.  Basically, I need spiritual guidance through this new chapter of parenting.
