As a mom sometimes I wake up and only see my failures.
The daunting to do lists.
The busy day ahead.
The overwhelming job that being a mom entails.
The days where you go without talking to friends or other adults.
The moments when the kids are driving me nuts.
The window into my mind and soul can feel like a window that has been opened all fall,
and has gathered all the dirt, seeds, and other debris floating in the air.
It gives me a very ugly view.
And though it gave us fresh summer breezes - it leaves my vision very blurred.
It is hard to see all the blessings.
But taking a few moments to remove the screens.
To clean up and organize my thoughts.
And to realize that during this season of the year I don't even need the screen.
I will miss the fresh air blowing through but the view without a screen is pretty amazing too.
I am offered a fresh view.
I am blessed to have a new perspective each day.
has me way more inspired to end the day with a kitchen that looks like this:
So that the next morning starts off with joy and not a heavy burden looming as I descend on motherhood.
Hope your Sunday brings you a peaceful end to your weekend so you can kick off your week filled with
grace for all the blessings in your life.
What the heck is up with Charley getting phone calls from friends I have never met about the ski hill being ready for action and sleepover invites I am not ready to have happen..
Ed got his deer and is arriving home early.
Hoping to get my hour to plan ahead for our week of regular old routine mixed with a nice big helping of family, food, and travel.
