My schedule has gone beyond “busy” and I am not proud. I love all the work I do. Volunteering, subbing, work at home mom, stay at home mom, extra curricular activities for the kids, my mommy duties and taking care of our home. Honestly, the last one really lost me. Home. I have neglected it so much lately it bothers me. I can’t seem to even get close to catching up on the laundry. Homework, reading, playing, meals, dishes, all the other stuff you add to it, it’s just continuous.
I haven’t been so strict on my home duties and keeping it perfectly tidy though because at the end of the day my kids are more important to me than that basket of clothes to be a neatly put away. Because it is that season of busyness and two kids back to back in school I want my kids to know they are important to me.
I feel like I am losing ground though. I feel like my house is complete chaos and I am lost in it. So I am working hard the next few weeks on finding balance in my home with everything that pulls me in many directions. As I am reflecting in this area the last few days I know that I am also needing to find some balance in other areas.
I am pulled continuously with the different needs of my children. Nurturing them individually and uplifting them with encouragement each day. Building their little souls to grow in the Lord and love others. I am sure my babies are just like your children completely different from each other. Different emotional needs, love language, and likes and dislikes.
Finding balance is a challenge to me right now. Please pray for me. I want to be full submerged in their lives and blossom their spiritual walk all the while teaching them obedience, love, kindness, and more through my life.
These are just some of my thoughts and I pray that if you are challenged in this area as I am you will seek the Lord for your guidance and trust in his goodness for you and your family.
