I have been struggling with balancing life! The children, activities, homework, our business, the lack of money, bills... I dont seem to have a balance anywhere and it is physically exhausting! I have gone back to the basics... first prayer. I did not grow up in a spiritual home. While I believed god existed, that was the extent of it. I am trying to bring the lord into our home for my children, for us. Recently I have been praying on and off all during the day. Trying to stay on task of the duties that need to be completed. While I am still failing at completing every task that needs to be done. I am getting more things completed and I am happier in the mornings when I wake up and when I go to bed. This is urgently important because I need to create harmony in my home. When we as adults are stressed, and it becomes too much for us, it seeps into our every move. That means that the kids end up affected by it. and by golly if its too much for us, its got to be confusinly difficult for them. I have vowed not to mention finances, frustrations and my failures. I wake up in a happy mood and miraculously my kids are happy too.... I kiss them off to school with a smile and a word of encouragement and there days go well.... I greet them with a smile afterschool and find they have had a great day. and i snuggle them to bed at night and they have sweet dreams. Deep Breath.... Relax.... they are growing up too fast. I would love to have anyone give me some pointers, how do you balance? How do you bring Christ into your home? How do you find your happiness? I am looking forward to this weekend, to Celebrating our grandmothers 90th Birthday... a definate celebration of life!
