Not Enough Time In The Day


It is so frustrating to want to be home with my kids, having experienced it throughout my maternity leave, and knowing, that as a working mom, I’m missing out on that.  I’ve been hoping, praying, wishing fervently that it would be possible for me to be a SAHM.  I’ve explored many ideas, scoped out many opportunities, and dreamt of all the possibilities. It remains to be seen what God will do with me.  I am so overwhelmed by life right now that I’ve forgotten the little things, run out of interesting stories.  Every day is a monotony, a repeat of the last, and weeks go by so fast, while I desperately wish for the weekend to come again, but then I think… thats another week of my life gone, that I didn’ t spend enough time with my kids.  I feel like I’m missing out on SO MUCH.  I wish wish wish there was a way.

Oh well.  Back to work tomorrow.

Friday is only 2 days away.

I am a mother of a growing group of sweet kids. We laugh, we cry, and we grow together in Christ. Every day is a new adventure. I love chocolate, sticky kisses, quirky smiles, and funny qoutables my kids come up with. :) Belly giggles, snuggling, and homeschooling round out the list of loves. Not every day is easy, but every day IS a beautiful gift. Our life as a family is slowly changing and growing as a result of a renewed interest in God's Word. His influence has been a slow process of sanctification, and this blog is evidence of it. Past posts, and current posts have changed in tone and goal, and are a testimony of all that has changed in our lives. <3 "Now, All glory to God who is able through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we could ask or think." Eph 3:20

  1. I can’t agree more. I dream about it every day. I add up the monthly cost of things I could sacrifice, but I can never get it to add up to my income. Even with the whopping cost of childcare being eliminated, it doesn’t look like there’s any way to do it. Hmmm… maybe next year.
