Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
What an exhausting past week emotionally with the COP list request. I think I failed miserably as a mom during that time. I was so anxious, short tempered, and unavailable, but in the midst of it my kids never missed a beat. They gave me hugs, kisses, and "I love You, Mom." My lesson learned is that in the trials of following Christ's Plan for our life (Example- COP List, we can't be so focused that we miss His blessings along the way. Things I overlooked that I now see. 1) Jeremiah wrote on his brand new basketball shoes, but He wrote scripture 2)Elijah completely destroyed his room with clothes everywhere, but He dressed himself all week with no help 3)Emily got into my make-up and made a mess, but when I got on to her ... she simply said, "But you tell me to share." So I guess it is all in how you want to look at things. I am going to look at the blessings of my messy house, dirty dishes, screaming kids, and say "Thank You Lord."
P.S. still waiting on everyone to weigh in on the Home Organization Email I sent out. That is my next post.
