Some days this mothering gig is hard.
Sometimes I feel like I’m going to lose it if one more little person asks me for one more cookie.
“NO! NO! YOU CAN NOT HAVE ANOTHER COOKIE. YOU HAD THREE COOKIES ALREADY, AND YOU GAVE TWO OF THEM TO THE DOG. DO YOU HAVE TO CLEAN UP THE MESS THE DOG MAKES WHEN SHE GETS SICK! NO! I DO! BESIDES IT’S ALMOST LUNCH, AND YOU ARE GOING TO EAT ALL OF YOUR GRILLED CHEESE. DO NOT FEED THAT TO THE DOG!”
And sometimes I actually do loose it.
When I feel a freak out like that coming on there’s one place I can turn to calm down, God’s Word. And if I do have a meltdown, it helps me refocus and change my attitude.
I put together a quick reference guide of scripture for some of the more common problems and frustrations that befall moms day-to-day. I think this is something every mom could use, so I’m sharing it here. Print it out, and keep some place where you find it easily. Better yet, hang it on the fridge.
Next time you feel like you’re going to lose it stop, take a deep breathe, seek God’s wisdom in his word and pray. It can change your whole day!
