Work. Volunteer work. Cooking. Being a wife. Part time work on the side. Cleaning. Exercising. Church. Paying the bills. Shopping for groceries. Taking care of a family. Need I go on? Who has a crazy busy life?! (we all raise hands!)
Just like all of you, my life can get a little crazy busy at times. Lately, I have been feeling like I have no idea what direction is up. Work has gotten the best of me. I literally feel like I have nothing left to give and I am feeling very drug down. Teaching a new grade every year (with the same kids) is really killing me. I am trying to be positive but gosh darn it- my situation is hard and I’m not sure how much longer I can carry on this way. The work situation coupled with my complete lack of energy and 8:15 bedtime is just making things a tad difficult. (the 8:15 bedtime is new for me, I just CAN’T stay awake!) I believe it will get better. Till then, I’ll be thankful for the itty bitty blessings in my life.
An itty bitty blessing: I got to take off Friday and go to the doctor. Woooo! (true excitment- really it is!) Look who came to see me while I was at the doctor….
The doctor is usually not all that fun but it has recently taken a huge turn around! :) Partly due to my parents coming down to accompany me to the doctor. They came to be with me since the husband has missed boat tons of work because of me…. With my parents, came the nephew and niece! SCORE! Talk about heaven. The only things missing were the sister, her hubby, and my other half. I was loving the day! We did the whole doctor thing and then I got to go out to lunch with my family! <3
Even if the nephew was not into pictures I got to take advantage of the growing cutie who was just loving talking to me and my iPhone camera!
After lunch we got to do a little shopping. I pushed around the niece in the cart and she would look up at me and laugh. I loved walking around with her laughing and giggling and me acting like a fool in love with those children! The connection I have with my sister’s kiddos is such a blessing from above. I love how they are seriously bonded to my heart. I love them to my very core……Yes sister, even when the nephew says “I neeeed it” to the suckers I said NO to. (I can win ‘The Meanest Aunt in the World’ award next year ;) ) I love them to my very core! Watching the itty bitties grow is a HUGE blessing in my life!
When life gets crazy busy I think it is very important to remember our blessings; the itty bitty blessings and the huge blessings alike. Both kinds of blessings are extremely important and I thank God for them every day.
