Today was our first day back to school, and I wanted to start off on the right foot. I am not an advance planner; as the first day was quickly approaching I was still pondering how would I make today spectacular.
It's been one of those weeks where I've found myself questioning my every move. Should I keep pressing forward? Am I doing what God wants me to do? Am I on the right path? Oftentimes, these questions begin to overtake my mind when change is on the horizon. I don't mind change, but I would be lying if I said that it wasn't uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying. But even when I am in emotional distress, God always shows up. This time was no different. The Persevere kit from Illustrated Faith came to my mailbox at just the right moment. I am usually surprised by the monthly theme so when I read theme on the envelope, I knew it was a word for me--persevere.
There were some moments in those early years when I felt like I didn't know whether I was coming or going. I was battling my own internal desires while try to learn new skills as a mom and wife. Now that I have been a mom for over a decade, I can confidently say that I am learning to embrace and love myself while embracing and loving my family. I don't have to battle for the things that I need to refuel while caring for my daughters, husband, and home.
