Today, I need to love like Jesus loves, with a heart that longs to be like him. I’m not feeling it, but this isn’t about my feelings, it’s about my obedience.
Dimples is coming for a visit this weekend, which is good, and also makes me feel uncertain. She is excited – and I’m tired. The weekend must be planned, because, as you all know, lack of structure leads to anxiety for kids like ours. We’re scheduling time with just the girls Saturday morning, cooking in the afternoon, and a birthday dinner for Samuel on Saturday night. Aunt Michele will come to visit, and the girls’ friend, Happy, will tuck into the schedule somewhere.
So much needs to be accomplished in a short time, yet the more we add in activities, the less it is like our real life. Fun times aren’t usually a challenge for Dimples, it’s the day-to-day of normality that is tough. How to find the balance – that is the question.
Little Man just told me that I am working as hard as a mom can work – even as hard as a crocodile bites. Yep, it feels a little like that. Motherhood is hard work, which is all the more reason to love like Jesus loves.
Have a great Thursday friends. My day will be better after five dentist appointments this afternoon. Good thing we spread them out over a few days this time!
