It's that time again.
Lane is in full on outage mode. (It's a work thing...) My least favorite time of year. I basically become a single mother for 2.5 months and my husband becomes a zombie from work overload.
But here we are and I'm so not ready to take this on. THREE kids, cold weather, anxiety... not a good mix.
I don't want to write this blog and sound whiny. But you might be hearing from me a lot more considering that I won't be interacting with people over the age 6 much for the next few months.
So here I am. I guess I'm ready because I have to be.
I'm thankful that my husband has a great job. I'm thankful that the Lord has blessed us with three awesome little ones.
I'm praying that in the next few months I will learn to rely on God more than I ever have. I need to give him my fears and my anxieties and get through each day. I need to be a good mom to these babies. I need to be willing to ask for help. (Thank the Lord for my wonderful family!) I need to pray, pray, pray. I need to make time for exercise. I need to eat healthy and sleep good. These are the things that will keep me sane.
I need to stay on top of the little things... the laundry, the dishes, the laundry, the cleaning, and more laundry. (If you know me, you know I have a SERIOUS problem with laundry.) But it's these little things that will keep life more simple, less cluttered and less stressful. Looking at piles of laundry and dirty dishes = STRESS to me.
These three make me so happy. I pray that I would enjoy them and love on them. I pray that I would be a good mama and friend to these munchkins.
And to you out there who do this all the time... You single mothers... seriously, you amaze me. Your strength, your patience, your drive... all of it. Amazing. Props to you! I think I said this last outage and I'm saying it again because you ladies blow my mind.
Lord, help me! Here we go...
