Some days - you are killing me.
This little girl is the most precious thing and SO funny and so loving and sweet. But she is also SO head strong and some days - I feel like I've been run over by a truck at the end of the day after dealing with her. Some days I just feel exhausted. And like I'm living ground hog day. I'm not complaining - I'm SOOO thankful to be here. But that doesn't make it NOT hard.
My friend Kandi tweeted an article last week that REALLY challenged and encouraged me. It met a lot of what I've been struggling with for the last year or two. I'm going to put it below because I think a lot of you need to read this:
MOTHERHOOD AS A MISSION FIELD
by: Rachel Jankovic
As someone once said, “Everyone wants to save the world, but no one wants to help Mom with the dishes.” When you are a mother at home with your children, the church is not clamoring for monthly ministry updates. When you talk to other believers, there is not any kind of awe about what you are sacrificing for the gospel. People are not pressing you for needs you might have, how they can pray for you. It does not feel intriguing, or glamorous. Your work is normal, because it is as close to home as you can possibly be. You have actually gone so far as to become home.
