Here is some real life for you. Sometimes the days are long. It’s 2:00pm and I have driven 90 minutes each way to take my 13-year old to gymnastics and then sat and tried to work for 3.5 hours at her practice. We are only now beginning our homeschool day...
Sometimes the days are hard. My 12-year old daughter had a blow up with me this morning and said some very hurtful things to my mama heart because she was hurting.
Sometimes life isn’t fair and we take things too personally. A misunderstanding with a friend resulted in a deep hurt with lasting effects.
Sometimes the laundry is piled up in the corner of my room and my to do list contains more unchecked boxes than hours in the day. Sometimes you drop a few of the plates you’re spinning and you let people down...and sometimes you beat yourself up over it.
Today I’ve experienced every single one of these “sometimes”...and the day isn’t even half over! And so, sometimes I simply must wave the white flag. Set a timer for 15 minutes, disappear to my bedroom, and spend some time reading a new book. Life is beautiful, and full, and good. But, sometimes life is messy. We mess up. We hurt one another. But, we try again- we do the best we can and resist the lie that tells us it isn’t enough. Today is one of those days. #lifeofahomeschoolmom #hsbloggers #reallife #transparent #itsokaythough #hismerciesareneweverymorning
