Difficult Times

Whoever said being a parent was easy…must’ve been crazy. Oh wait, I don’t think anyone has ever said it was. Maybe I just thought it in my head all those mindless years of my youth. Stuggling really hard lately to keep it all together. Dealing with 3 completely diferent stages of children tends to drain the brain of much functioning power. A baby, who needs consistent basic needs met, a beautful growing 2 year old girl who is learning to express herself through words finally, and a 5 year old growing boy, who’s about to enter kindergarten, and is about as smart as a 10 year old. Quite the range of dynamics in my house. Top it off with trying to have a good relationship with my hubby too presents a daily struggle. One day I’ll look back and realize that there isn’t an easy solution to it all, and that I need to take it one day, one thing, one second at a time. And depend on God a lot more than I currently am. Kudos to all you parents out there. Its quite the task that God has given us. I just wonder what he’s thinking today on this Father’s day. Sure he’s probably dealing with a lot more than me!

  1. Much love to you friend!! Do you read Mandy Steward’s blog? She is refreshingly honest about her daily parenting struggles…it is completely rare that I cannot relate. When I was home all day with the boys there were days I just wanted to run out of the house crying….but now that I am working full time and Jeff is home I just miss them so much. (although now Jeff is the one wanting to run from the house…lol)

    God is definitely our only hope!!
