My life is such a roller coaster of emotions. I am sure every single human is like this. But do you ever meet someone who is so even keeled you think that if they ever got into your head that they would be shocked?
Here are some of the thoughts that popped into my head just today. (in no particular order- I just type as I remember)
*Wow, I am so blessed- Thank you, Jesus, for my family, I am so blessed, I do not deserve any of it!
*These kids drive me nuts like none other!
*What were we thinking when we decided to homeschool? I am not a good enough teacher, the kids will never even make it to college.
*How lucky our kids are that they get to stay at home and learn the love of learning! How I love to sit here and read with the kids. What a sweet moment.
*If I hear them argue one more time, I will tear my hair out!
*What sweet children- Thank You, Lord. I know I am blessed.
*I am so glad I have been trying to eat healthy- what a good feeling to drink water and eat an apple, I am sure I am on the road to better health and I bet I have lost a few pounds
* These chocolate twix bars (have you seen that recipe? crackers, boil brown sugar and butter, pour over, bake, top w/ chocolate chips) are DELICIOUS! MMM I think I will have 4 more. I think I deserve it, I walked down to the curb to get the trash can.
*I am so lucky to have a little girl! How fun to dress her up.
* What am I going to do with that little girl? I feel bad about it, but I think I will just pop in a Barney video for her to watch.
*Now I will get the mom of the year award, I am going to sit and play Candy Land with the kids. We will have such a fun, wholesome time.
* I am going absolutely crazy with this Candy Land game, we have been playing for 45 minutes and still no one is close to winning- if anyone whines or argues one more time, I am putting them all to bed.
Isn't life crazy? Happy sad frustratingthrilling joyful.........but one thing I can say- in the midst of the craziness I always have peace. Peace that God is taking care of me, peace that no matter what happens here, I have an eternity in heaven to look forward to....life is a dot---afterlife is a long line. Thanks to GOD for peace. Without it I think I could not get out of bed in the morning.
Another thing? Thanks to God that His mercies are new every morning. Nights like tonight, when I look at the kids and think that I cannot take another moment of their fighting with each other....etc.....When they get up in the morning, I will be happy to see their little faces. It will be bright & fresh and the day full of possibilities. Thank You, Lord, for HOPE.....and peace. (and for early bedtimes :) :) :)
