Motherhood – “I need a vacation!”

A shout out to all you mamas (and dads) out there. Our job as parents is incredibly hard!

Today was a Nightmare!

Today, for example, my kids would not stop nagging, whining, and screaming over EVERY LITTLE THING! My brain literally feels like it is frying as the days goes on.

As a mom, staying at home, an author working from home, in ministry with my husband – my jobs are never done.

I want to crawl into the fetal position and never get out of bed, when I think of all the things I should be doing, have gotten done, or will have to do.

I NEED A BREAK!!!!

As my mom always says, “Stop the world, I want to get off!” Yes, that about sums up how I feel this very moment.

“Mom’s Night Out”

From Youtube.com

Now, I’m picturing the movie, “Mom’s Night Out,” when the chaos of four different moms’ lives implodes all at once.

“I love my kids, I love my husband, I love my minivan – my mini van rocks! Then why do I feel this way (so unhappy)?”

Again, I love my family, I love my jobs, but some days are just too much.

Encouragement

All I wanted to say was I hear you, I’m with you, and we can survive this season of our lives.

Let’s encourage one another in our victories and check in on one another regularly.

Above all, seek God’s peace and wisdom for ourselves and our parenting in the Holy Bible.

If you don’t know where to start, Proverbs or Psalms are good ones to try.

Be blessed, get rest, and give your children over to God. Only He can change their hearts.
