It's one of those days

Mommyhood feels hard today.

In fact, today just kind of feels hard.

It's one of those days.

Nothing comes easy.

Emotions easily flow . . .and they tend to be negative.

I can blame it on life circumstances.

I can blame it on some situations I've encountered/am dealing with and have been for a while.

I can blame it on hormones.

I can blame it on kids . . .really anything!

Yet the reality is, life goes on.

This afternoon was one of those days I sat down at my desk, just sat there and thought, "Lord, my hands and heart fill empty today. And on my own, I can't."

And in that moment, the simplest of memory verses I've known since a child was whispered to me:

"I can do EVERYTHING through HIM who gives me strength."

Praying your day knows HIS perfect strength today too.

Amber, it's been one of those MONTHS for me!!! I was listening to my radio today and heard one line of a song, "I can't do this alone, Lord I need to you to hold on to me." So I've just been resting in the fact that HE is holding ME. I am so grateful that it's not really about how well I am doing anything at all. God is totally awesome. Thanks for your words and reminder, too.
