In our crazy home full of functions to attend, posts to be written, family matters to attend to and well a home to manage (the list could go on but then that would be just tiresome to write out). It is hard to find a quiet moment. A moment where I can breathe. I am sure I am like most moms and go from sun up to sun down but frankly and honestly it is exhausting.
Let’s be real for a second, being the woman God wants us to be is tiresome. There ya have it, I said out loud what you have all been thinking. It really can be. There are days (just like today as I have shut myself out of the house and left my husband with the children) that I am certain that quiet moments just don’t happen. I am positive that I am forever going to be stuck pulling kids off of each other, bandaging boo boos and answering the same questions about a million times. Yep, quiet moments where oh where are you…….
Yet, as I sit outside on the dirty ground looking at the garden my husband slaved over I can’t help but to smile. I smile not because the lines are not straight or because I see a tomato that will soon be ready to eat. Nope, I smile because I am reminded of the joy that day brought. The laughter that filled our yard in our busy, rowdy and somewhat crazy neighborhood. I don’t ponder on all the fights that happened that day. How Isaac got mad because he didn’t get to plant all by himself or how Xavier ran away from hard work every chance he got. Instead I think of the afternoon that as a family all 6 of us worked super hard and played even harder.
Even though I crave those quiet moments wait I sometimes drool for those quiet moments, I believe I will take those moments that make me smile instead. Because one day all my babies will leave our home to embark on the paths that God wants them to go on and I will have more then enough quiet time.
Sweet Tired Worn Down Momma,
I know it is hard. Trust me I am right there with you in the trenches. I do not claim to know all the answers. In fact each day I am learning something new myself. What I do know is that this crazy season will not last forever. Our moments when we desire quiet will be far to much for us to bare. Hang in there momma and know that I am right there praying along side you.
