Brandishing plastic sword and dagger, he came running across the grassy courtyard to greet me as I returned home from the grocery store. "I thought you were a 'crimimmal'", he called out caught up in a world of play where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, knights, robots and Spiderman all happily play together. It's a wonderful time to be his mommy.

for the love of pink and baby girls

pep talk to myself

Do you ever feel embarrassed to have seen yourself and your situation as so unbearable and unrelenting only to find someone who has been given a greater burden yet they carry it with much grace and perseverance?
That happened to me again today.
Feeling sorry for myself and my constant state of tiredness and lack of ability to do all "the other things" and then I find this. Moms who struggle with so much more than me and are still able to love and encourage each other with kind words and thoughts of intercessory prayer.
It's pathetic to see yourself wimping out on life's trials especially when they are NOTHING compared to what others are doing.
Stop whining, pray for strength and get ready to be strong. This trial may be just a warm-up for the real deal.
