Does this feel like a dream to anyone else besides me??? We have been at home for about two weeks and yes I have most of the same gripes as other moms everywhere….my little boos’ are off schedule, eating up all the food, constantly on my leg (literally-the toddlers), and are a little grumpy about doing their schoolwork from home. And please lets not add the mass amount of cleaning that I do daily. Seriously, today alone I have vacuumed at least three times and it isn’t even four o’clock yet!
However, even with all the uncertainty, chaos and adaption to a new normal, what I can say is that if nothing else, I see God redeeming the time. I am always feeling like I don’t have enough time with my family, I’m not being intentional enough with reaching out to people I know/care about, praying for others…like really interceding and going before God to just be with Him without rushing and not because I need something in that very moment, just to know Him…to hear Him, to feel connected to Him…
So, that’s how I am maintaining….
~By taking the time do to the things that felt time wouldn’t allow (ie, kickball games with kiddies, family walks)
~Creating a new schedule for our new normal
~Keeping our home clean ( I can think better when there is less clutter)
~Reaching out to others (text, social media)
~Prayer (been reading over and praying Psalm 91)
I pray safety and protection over you friends…and that you have the energy and space to maintain and thrive in a new normal<3
