“Am I messing up my Kids?”
Proverbs 31.org Bible Study
Lets be serious.. I am lucky to get through the day with a smile on my face.
I spend my day taking care of my home. It can be a circle – get up – eat breakfast – check my emails-of course Facebook surfing clean for 15 min.- fix lunch – do laundry-rest- make dinner-clean after dinner-try to find time to take a walk-watch a little tv-and get ready for the next day.
It can get boring. My husbands biggest fear when we decided I would be a stay at home maker I would go stir crazy and develop a major case of cabin fever.
I have my days. I have found little things to help. One of them is just take it hour by hour. Routine is a must and a new life style for me. However, at times I feel I don’t pull my weight around the house. My husband reminds me daily I have a big part in the family dynamics.
I have to search for joy. I know some ladies would love to be in my shoe. We always want the other side. I have worked for 15 years and now I am happy staying at home.
I have to remind myself I deserve joy. Why? The Bible tells us we need to feel joy in our lives always no matter what you are going through in your life.
1 Thessalonians 16-18
Be joyful always; Pray continually;Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.
This is great reinsurance for me. I have found myself feeling not so alone. I talk to Jesus while vacuuming , folding clothes, or while cooking dinner. He is here to help me and I love spending time with Him. I have 8 hours before my teenage gets home so that time is becoming special to me.
I have this wonderful circumstance that came into my life. I am blessed to stay at home and take care of the needs here.
My husband is right – I am a big part of providing for my family.
God led me down this path for a reason.. to find joy in my life…
I am not going to lie. I am brand stinking brand new at this blogging thing. Granted I have journal after journals I have written for years. One day I looked around in the blog world ( thanks to pintrest!). I had a thought ‘hey, I can totally do that!’
I am using my theme towards a Christian mom, wife and your friend next door. Now, I am not saying – I am a novel writer and I do realized there are zillions of blogs out. I guess I want to treat this as my open journal with my fellow readers!
I want this blog to be FUN and I want it to INSPIRE you and I want you to be BLESSED!
My goal is to at least ONE person a day! And I believe if I put this in God’s hands … one day I may have 100’s ( I have small goals right now!)
I will keep post it notes when an idea pops in my mind – so it should be interesting around my house. I already keep bible verses all over!
Garfield can tell you all about that!
I am not going to ask to leave comments or likes. This isn’t a popularly contest HOWEVER – tell your friends – I want to spread the word! It will give me a smile!
Now, off to the post it notes for my next post!
Squeezes and Cheezes
If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable – each segment distinct. ~Letty Cottin Pogrebin What consist of a family? Is it the traditional mom, dad and kids. Friends … Continue reading
My Kids Are My Purpose Of Love
Weekends with the kids are a precious gift God has blessed me with. I don’t see them as much as I would like. Due to our visitations schudules and how much I work during the week – I find a size of a needle to squeeze them in. It isn’t enough for me. When they are not with me – I feel like a piece of me is missing. When they are with me.. they show so much love to me. Natalie always wants me to be cuddling with her – holding her hand – she is my lil me. We are getting closer. I don’t want to loose that connection with my daughter. I want her to know how much I love her.
Nicholas is my sweet loving boy. He just randomly runs in the room to give me a kiss. He always wants to be around mommy. He has a lot of love in him. He will be turning 7 this coming month. He is very excited about it. He went to toyrus and made a wish list with 64 items.
I am at the point in my life now where I can afford to take them out and do stuff with them. We went to the movies today to see Men In Black.
It is fun doing things with the kids. I know they will remember little things with mommy. We always try to have fun. We had a great weekend of swimming and walking to feed ducks. We got a little sun.. but it makes them look healthy since my son is a ghost. But we had a great weekend.
The bad part of this.. when I drop them off – I do into instant depression. I know I am providing as much as I can with my kids. I am not a full time mommy like I was. Which is a shift for me since I was home with them until they went to school. I raised them since they were babies. Now that they are getting bigger – I feel like I miss on a lot of them. I will be working on a new job idea where it won’t take all the time away from them. I have a plan for the next year that will make us closer. I know God is putting me through this so I can learn to be strong. But during that path of becoming strong – you break a lot.
I just want my kids to grow up knowing how much mommy loves them and I am always here for them no matter what.
Time will show the love I have for them through the years. This is just a glitch for me to overcome some obstacles I have know in life……
