The Art of Juggling

Sometimes the stress of life can creep up on me and then BAM...I feel overwhelmed. The two craziest times of the year (for a teacher) are August/September and then April/May (the beginning and end of the school year). It was already a bit stressful prior to having a kid, but now that I have Ella, it is more difficult "juggling" everything. I am still learning how to prioritize what is important and what can wait until tomorrow, or the next day, or next...

To say it bluntly: being a mom is hard. But at the same time it is VERY rewarding!

I am contemplating on taking a day off to get my "to do" list conquered.

On an exciting note, we are getting Ella dedicated on Mother's Day and I am so thrilled about it. Last year on Mother's Day I was pregnant and watched as babies in our church were dedicated. Since that day I have desired to have Ella dedicated on Mother's Day. I can't wait!

I need to put this verse throughout the house!!!

"Your father knows what you need before you ask him. So do not worry, saying 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today's trouble is enough for today." (Matthew 6:8b, 31-34)
