Renewal

This past week has been one of the hardest in my role as Momma.  I cannot quite articulate what it is, but I have just felt as if the wind was taken out of my sails.  I am unsure if it is the fact that my oldest daughter is off to school, or if it is the realization that summer is quickly drawing to a close, or maybe it is a combination of both.  Whatever the reason, I yearned for something, anything, to pull me out from beneath this rubble.

It wasn’t until early this morning, when my two little ones sat on the deck, still in their pajamas, watching the sun rise above the roof of our house, that the clouds seemed to part in my mind.

I am truly blessed to have these little ones before me.  To have a husband who works so very hard so that I can stay home and be the homemaker that I truly believe I was meant to become.  To have a lovely roof over my head that shelters my family.  It is with humbling gratitude and a sense of renewal that I face my day and week ahead.

Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful week filled with gratitude for the blessings in your life.

    Good for you…choosing to see the blessing even at a hard stage of being a mom!!! Unfortunately this will be only one of many times “the wind gets sucked from your sail” as a mom. BUT…it’s a choice to sit back and look at the bigger picture of things and find the MANY blessings within that very moment! Blessings to you and your family as your sweet baby girls start spreading their wings! I just sent my “baby” to her last first day of schoo lthis morning…and although it is sad, I choose to be thankful for this moment and the wonderful young lady she is becoming before my very eyes! Remember…it’s a choice to find the blessing in the moment (even the hardest ones). Have a WONDERFUL week!

    • Thank you so much for the beautiful response Lori! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your “little girl” as you get ready to begin a new chapter of your lives.

    Being a mother is the hardest job in the world but the most rewarding! We all have our moments. I hope this week goes better for you. 🙂
