It's Monday and I'm feeling soooooo tired today. I slept through my alarm and have been in a fog all day. It's been one of those grumpy days where I can't seem to get anything done - at least not anything really helpful. One of those days when I want to just throw my hands up and scream good-freaking-grief!!!
and then go take a nap.
Confession: some days I really don't want to be a mommy. I HATE feeling that way because I just adore my children and I am so grateful to have four healthy, beautiful children... but then there are just those days. Like last night. I just want to be ME for a little while and not MOMMY. I want to have an adult conversation that doesn't revolve around potty training and time outs. I want to be young and go out and have fun. I hate feeling this way. I am thankful that these feelings pass and are replaced with love for my children and joy in my mothering. My kids were simply adorable this morning, which almost never happens in the morning. They actually helped each other out instead of fighting. I looked in my rear view mirror and smiled because they are such sweet little souls. Even if they do drive me crazy.
Confession: I am super stressed out. I am trying to get childcare arranged for my church's ladies retreat that I signed up to go to. The kids have the day off of school (what is up with that?) so it is even more difficult. I've been praying about it and trying not to get stressed out but it is becoming a big issue for me. I have four days to get this worked out or I don't go. Everyone I've asked so far can't do it, or can only take a few of my kids part of the time, which I would be fine with if I could fill in the gaps. But so far, no can-do. grrrrr. If you say a prayer for me, would you leave a little comment letting me know?
Confession: I don't like how little transparency my blog has had lately. Having a photography-themed blog it is sometimes difficult to know how much of my life I want to share on here but I feel like I'm trying to portray myself on here as better than I really am and I don't want to do that.
So I'm starting this weekly themed post and I'm calling it Confessions. Some weeks it might be rather trivial and superficial other weeks it might be deeply personal, or spiritual. I know that I am the most encouraged by other bloggers who share their lives graciously yet openly, I am comforted by knowing that I am not alone. There are other women, all around the world, who share common struggles... and joys. Which is why I'm also making this a link-up post. So we can gather our confessions together and confess that life is hard, we make mistakes and that's okay.
