Today I have a case of the major Mondays.  I feel overwhelmed by my workload, stressed about decisions I am currently making regarding my life and my family, and just overall defeated.  Some days are like this, especially as a mother.  A lot of life’s responsibilities land squarely on our shoulders, and what we do with those things affects more than just ourselves.  That is what makes this job seem super hard at times.  The weight of all of it catches up with me sometimes and makes me feel like I’m drowning.

This weekend Mr. Miller and I talked a lot about our life.  What was working for us, what we needed to change, and what direction we’re going in this life.  I felt inspired and am trying hard to start making some changes today, but the load of being away from nearly 10 days, schedules to maintain, things to catch up on, people to see is starting to get the better of me.  It happens.  We hear at church a lot, “Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.” That is so true for my life.  On these days that I feel defeated, I know that I need to “busy my mothering hands”  and the good Lord will make up for ever last bit that I can’t.

I think my kitchen floor might be a great place to start:

Here at the Miller Manor, we are very much doing our best.  Trying our hardest.  Prayerfully  moving forward with our lives.  And aren’t we all? I wish we could all be a little easier on each other, starting with ourselves.

Tomorrow is a bright new day.
