Of course, you and I know, that is easier to say than do; take me, for instance. After the craziness of Sunday, the lazy side of me wants to chill out on monday morning. I want to enjoy my cup of caffeine, the quiet of my little office space and maybe do some reading. But, I have a three-year-old and a six-year-old, there are dirty dishes in my kitchen sink, we have school work to do, there's probably laundry I need to do, and there's writing to be done. Now, to those of you who get up early and head out to work an eight or ten our shift, this may not sound like a lot. After all, how hard could it be to be a stay-at-home mom. My answer, it's not hard. However, when you have issues with time management as I do, it can get confusing.
It took me a while to go to sleep last night. For some reason, I kept thinking about the characters in my newest book. It's a historical.
I kept asking my two main characters, "How do you feel about him," and "What do you think about her?" Just in case you are wondering, they aren't listening to me. lol
So, i managed to fall asleep, only to dream I was stuck at an unfamiliar house, my husband was somewhere dangerous, and no one i knew would text me. :)
After this weird dream, I woke up to a three-year-old in my bed, kicking me and wanting to prop her legs and feet on my back. Needless to say, I don't think anyone except the six-year-old slept well.
If you are a parent, you've had nights like that. You have also had to get up and get to work after nights like that.
I have a full day of home school planned, I have a certain amount of writing i want to accomplish, there are some household chores I need to complete, and there's only one way I'll make it through…trusting in God. I believe God has blessed me with a talent to write. I believe God has called me to be a stay-at-home mom and to home school. It is not such a great leap of faith to say that if I believe God has called, then He will equip me with the right tools and strength to do what He is calling me to do.
Now, here's your challenge…and don't be shy about joining in the discussion. What are some things you believe God has called you to do?
