Overwhelmed

At my house we’re just getting over the flu. I took my SON yesterday to have his tongue tie cut yesterday(I like saying my son smile). He cried a lot.  When he fell asleep I didn’t go to sleep I decided to stay up and clean the kitchen, do Laundry.  What’s wrong with that I hear you ask? Well it was 2 am . By the time I got down to scrubbing the kitchen floor baby woke up and it was 5am.

After diapering and feeding him I fell asleep in what felt like 5 minutes. The next I know my 3 and 5 year old come in to my room wanting  breakfast and home-school lessons  to start. My 11 year old ,I was short  with today ,when I didn’t really need to.We had a heart to heart afterwards.

The truth is right now, today I feel overwhelmed, I feel tired, I feel frustrated, I feel discouraged. It occurred to me that there might be someone out there that can benefit from me speaking up.

Between these pages of beautiful prose and my edited you tube videos its easy to think I have it all together well I do not. I am only human and all that entails

Its winter and I have a habit of baking up a storm and having little snacks. (say sugar crash and potential weight gain)

So with the wisdom God endowed me with, I have a plan: Menu plan again,More green smoothies, bake one goodie for Sabbath only,  no snacking, Drink more water and restart exercising ,Go outside get some  sunshine( even in the snow) For those of you who have been following my blog will know  from my weigh in Tuesday. I felt I was at my best, when I was doing these things.  My energy levels were up and I was so happy. The other thing is I need to find time to pray,  I miss doing that consistently.  I can’t do this in my own strength anymore.  I’ll let you know in a future post if this works.

Please pray for me. If you have a mom or close friend you can lean on and cannot identify with the tiredness I am talking about then cherish that person.

I am living my dream and this is only for a season. I am determined to hear my heavenly Father say above any human lips, “Well done my good and faithful servant”.

Tomorrow is a new day
