Tomorrow morning my little boy who is 7, will be having his tonsils and adenoids removed in the morning. I know when we recover from this it will all be worth it. He will feel better and hopefully be able to sleep better. We have field day at our school tomorrow and my little boy does not like to miss school, especially events. As his mom I tried to make the best decision for him to miss field day or his awards/graduation at school. He is bummed that he is missing tomorrow but there were pros and cons to the decision and I just pray that his 7 year old mind can wrap around it.
Tonight we took him to eat a yummy dinner and he chose to go to a local restaurant/arcade to have lots of fun. We ate lots of food and played lot of video games and I think the highlight was him using his tickets to get a whoopie cushion and then using it on his momma. The picture is blurry but he was laughing uncontrollably that momma fell for the joke when he placed it behind my back. He then got out of the car saying, “momma quit stinking the car up.” I quickly looked around for neighbors outside. Thankfully they were inside. Oh the life of a boy!
Currently we are trying to finish the race with the school year ending. I am one tired momma who is ready for Summer break. My sweet sweet daughter is very strong-willed and stubborn and it always involved the times we need to get ready (school every morning), meals, bedtimes. So I am seriously ready for a much-needed break of the morning routine.
Currently I am reading Hands Free Mama and Restless when I have quiet opportunities. I love to read but don’t have the time like i used to. It is a rare gift these days.
Currently I am loving any family time we can get. We all stay so busy in this crazy chaotic life that we forget sometimes the true meaning of families. We were able to spend some quality time at our local park the other day. We got home late and caused our bed time to be delayed but every moment was worth it.
Currently I am loving some quality time I was able to spend with friends this week which is not in the norm for me. I was able to have coffee with a friend, lunch and pedicure with another friend, and see a friend who has been in my life since I was 19 years old. It was such a blessing from God to see these girls and also to have that time I lack due to my overwhelming and overly busy schedule. Friendships are a true gift and I need to be more intentional with all my friends.
I haven’t been able to blog as much as I desire this year. It was a goal I set at the beginning of the year that I am not meeting. I truly love it and it is a passion for me to share my story and my faith. Sometimes I feel like I am not as good as other bloggers and I can compare just like we do as moms. During my quiet time God reminds me that being a mom and blogging is my passion and if it comes from him it is good and perfect and shouldn’t be compared. He has me right where he wants me to be able to fulfill his good works. I hope you stick around with me even during my inconsistent posts. Everything I write I truly try to always come from a heart of humbleness and love. With all that being said this is what God has left me about my season in life as a mother during my quiet time.
All moms, you and me, face unpleasant and messy tasks. From dirty diapers, food on the floors to dealing with a stubborn child or rebellious teen. But you can face them knowing that Jesus is right by your side. You bring Glory to his name as you accept the tasks, small and great, given to you. You are precious.
I pray tonight that you know this, You are not alone. At the grocery store, folding the same load of laundry for the 8th time, dirty dishes in the sink, sweeping food, cleaning stains out of the carpet and so on. This is your task and you can face it with boldness and courage because you are a Jesus girl who is not alone.
