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.
