So I've been slacking.......

I knew that this would happen. Start a blog, be all excited about it, write and write for the first few days and then.............nothing. Of course, in my own defense I did not pick a very opportune time to start a blog. I mean, I went from having a husband who was home every day at 4:30 with weekends off, to having no husband home and life with me and 4 kids round the clock. Crazy!
Some people are so nice and say things to me to like:
"You must be super mom"
"I would go crazy"
"There is NO way I could home school and be mom/dad all at the same time"
"How do you stay sane?"
These are all very nice compliments and I know my friends mean well when they say these things. It just seems silly to me at times though. I think people underestimate what they are capable of. It's not like Jason and I made this decision lightly or that I just KNEW I could be Wonder Woman (my favorite underroos character as a kid :) I just knew that I would have to take life one day at a time. I was scared, I still have my bad days...........like yesterday when I took my kids to the mall and instead of watching them like I should, I was talking to a friend and the boys broke a glass vase right in the middle of Belks! Talk about pure horror! This is the type of thing you see on TV, I was really really embarrassed and really thought the vase was ugly and didn't want to have to buy it. The sales clerk was nice and told me not to worry about it and that she would call maintenance. Still felt HORRIBLE! But, we survived and life is back to normal today.
All that to say, I don't think I am doing anything any other mom couldn't do if put to the task. Is it the ideal situation? No. Is it easy to do day after day after day without Jason here? No. But I do it and keep on moving forward.......just like I believe any one of my friends could/would do if put in the same situation.

You are so right! I am amazed at what I have been capable of enduring the past two years, but it is not ME...it's Christ THROUGH me!
I will pray for you this morning, Bekah! You can make it! Love on those kids, let the house get a little messy, and enjoy life today.
