Time to be Thankful

It is time for me to sit down and pull myself out of this mess. Things have been difficult around our home for a couple of weeks now... well, that's the nice way to put it. While I have started trying to really pinpoint the problems, that isn't something I want to put out there. However, I do need to remind myself of how blessed I really am.

I have three healthy children.
I have a husband who I love more each day and who loves me unconditionally.
I have a wonderful family.
I have a home that is filled with things that are special to my family.
My husband has a wonderful job.
I have friends who would do anything for me and I would do anything for them.
I have a church that I love.
I am a mom.
I am a wife.

I could go on and on and on. God has really blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. I am so guilty of getting wrapped up in the moment dealing with my babies that I lose sight of how blessed we are. We really are.

Today has been so very hard on this Momma. I was finally able to pull myself together and grab some quiet time while the girls are laying down. I actually read a blog post that spoke so directly to me, it was wild. Then I felt like I needed to just be thankful for a bit. And it helps me to be thankful in an organized way, like by writing it out.... and this seemed like the appropriate place.

Now I'm going to curl up with some hot apple cider (yes, I realize it is almost 80 degrees today, but it is still Fall) and one of my Mommy Devotionals and pray naptime lasts a little while longer.

Be thankful.

I can so relate, it is so hard when babies are small to know where they start and you begin or you start and they began, a word fomr the wise, make sure you take time for Jenn, get a break from being a mommy 24/7 so you can refuel, there is no super mom, we all need to find ourself and enjoy who we are, so take time for you, and do not feel guilty abut it, that is what makes you a better mother:) it also helps with those ruff weeks:) you know I am always here if you need me to baby sit so you can just have some Jenn or girl friend time:) love you so much

What a nice list. It's a great time of year to be grateful, even if it feels like July :)

Oh my word! I am really struggling right now, too. Thank you for sharing this. The sermon from our church this weekend was so wonderful: Thinking of you!
