"But you have the weekends..." you might say to me. Well, not exactly because weekends are for actually cleaning not just the picking up I do during the week, and for laundry, and for birthday parties, and grocery shopping, and running errands, and everything else that didn't get done during the week.
I feel like I never get to rest. This weekend I found myself simply exhausted, a place that I feel like I've been for quite some time now, but there really isn't an end in sight. But this is life. This is where the Lord has me. This is exactly where I'm supposed to be. So I suck it up, and do the very best that I can.
So when I came across this series in my search for my 31 favorites, I knew instantly that it was for me.
I guess this series reminded me that life doesn't have to be perfect. My house doesn't have to always be spic and span...it's ok for things to be out place. My home is lived in by four people, two of those are tiny little people who love to explore and play and its ok that my home represents that. I need some rest. It gives my mothering heart the patience my children need and deserve; it gives my soul strength to be the wife my husband longs for; it gives my head the mind clarity to prioritize my life the way it needs to be.
So maybe I should take a few days off this week and just rest.
