.....so that you can see who you REALLY are.
Karaia said to me today, "Mom, I'm sorry you are having a bad day."
"Huh? I'm not having a bad day."
"Well you're acting like you are."
I guess all the pressure, that yes I put on myself, to obtain certain goals....and new goals....was showing a little too loudly today.
I feel my most creative (and let's be honest, have the most energy) during the middle of the day.
When the kids need food, or water, or heaven forbid, a mother.
The ironic thing about all this, is when I kneel by my bed at night 95% of my prayer focuses on what I can do to improve my mothering. Obviously, I am missing the boat.
I am fully convinced that if I get the priorities in order, i.e. being the Mother I'm meant to be, scripture reading, etc, then the creative side of me will be helped along.
No matter what time of day I finally get some time to myself.
