I am a wife.
A mother to three young girls.
I am in an accelerated Bachelor of Nursing program (for those who hold a B.A. in another area)
Yes, life is crazy, busy, full and blessed.
I'm often exhausted. The house is rarely clean.
Kids get sick. Things go wrong. Childcare falls through.
It's easy for me to feel like I'm drowning, like I'm succeeding at nothing and therefore failing at everything.
I am somewhat of a Type A, control freak. I like routine. I like plans. I like when life follows them.
Life rarely follows my routines and plans.
And so I am learning, to EMBRACE THIS DAY.
Whatever the day holds. When the day goes according to plan. Or when nothing goes the way I expected.
I embrace hanging out with sick kids on the couch all day, even if it means the house is a disaster and I have to make up time lost at work.
I embrace awesome days spent playing and being together as a family.
I embrace mornings everyone is grumpy and mad that mommy has to go to school for 12 hours.
I embrace my days off, when I get to do "the mom thing"--driving to and from school, making lunch and drinking coffee on the couch, cuddling with my preschooler while she watches a show.
I embrace this day, this life that God has given me. I trust that I am exactly where He wants me to be, even when it's uncomfortable or challenging.
Join me, and embrace your day. You'll find that it helps change your perspective on those days you want to rewind or erase.
Because, This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
My man..and what my usually dark hair looks like after a summer "off" with the kids
before starting nursing school! Lots of sun :)
My hearts. The loves of my life. My reason for pretty much everything.
A mom and her girls.
