Thank you for your words of support and encouragement yesterday. It’s nice to hear that I am not alone. However, yesterday’s post was not intended to be a woe, is me plea. Honestly, it was a raw look into my day with two young children. I strive to keep from writing with rose colored glasses. I feel that there are many blogs out there that only show the beautiful, sweet things that happen. But life is messy – we screw up, we have bad days, we miss workouts, we overindulge, etc. We are sinners. To edit my life as if I am without fault would be a disservice to you. On the other hand, to show you how I lean on God through the tough times and rise to the challenge, that, my friends, is what this life is truly about.
Please note, several parts of the day were embellished for comical effect. I did not mean to scare people away from having a second child or not having children at all!
I love my boys with all of my heart and would not trade them for the world. I thank God for them each and every day. They are a blessing to my life and one of the reasons I am alive is to be their mama. They are each so very special in their own ways and some of the adversity that we experience on a daily basis is by no fault of my own… Trying to fit in one more thing before putting Luke down for nap, spending too much time on my iPad, resulting in a jealous Matthew. You know the drill…
And, yes, I am still considering having a third child. Just not until Luke is sleeping through the night and out of diapers!
BTW, I have several delicious crockpot meals to share with you if I ever find the time to edit the pics and write up the recipes! Are you enjoying the multitude of crockpot recipes swirling around the blogosphere?
Goodnight, my friends!
Need a crockpot recipe for tomorrow morning or this weekend? Check out these lovelies!
