I don’t know about you, but I always find it interesting to read things written by someone else who encounters similar circumstances as myself. This post over at Girl Talk was a refreshing reminder that there is another mom (or two or three), dealing with the same things I am right now.
Here are some excerpts, but there are so many good ones you need to go read them all!
“I’m in the candy store, endeavoring to buy some peace and quiet.”
“I’m in the playroom, picking up Legos and army men.”
“I’m at eye level with Andrew, correcting him for complaining, and reminding him that he needs a Savior.”
I thought I’d give it a try based on my day today.
I’m at the computer with my two oldest girls, looking at paint colors for their new rooms.
I’m at a birthday party during Elsie’s nap time, attempting to keep her from going into meltdown mode.
I’m at the medicine shelf, applying ointment and a bandage to Grant’s skinned knee.
I’m in the dining room, removing an ink pen from Elsie’s hand again…for the 10th time today!
I’m in the doorway smiling, watching Clare and a friend play Barbies and act out their dream life.
As a mom, where are you? Are you satisfied and content in the middle of your motherhood? I have to say that I had not been through every moment of this day, but after reading this post and the quote near the end, I am encouraged to smile through it all. My job is an important one!
