Do you ever have extra energy required moments?
Those moments where you are just DONE and dreaming of bed time or for Dad to come home?
Your kid won’t eat what you made for dinner,
The toddler peed on the floor again,
Another mess was dropped,
You found food on the wall,
You stepped on another toy,
They won’t stop screaming,
They are fighting again,
They won’t go to bed,
They won’t nap,
They won’t put their shoes on,
They won’t let you pee alone,
They’re flopping on the floor,
Your husband’s running late...
"Contentment will come when you are grateful about everything."
I heard this quote recently and it stopped me in my tracks. I knew I was struggling to be content in my current situations because I knew my heart was not at ease and I yearned for the future and for things not yet revealed.
As a mother, we are always looking ahead. We are busy planning ahead to purchase all their seasonal attire, we plan holidays and events, meal planning for the week, signing up for recreational activities, etc. If were not planning ahead, we get behind.
With this in our nature, it's easy to also try to plan ahead the things that are beyond our control; or not just plan ahead, WISH ahead.
