For some reason today I woke up with about a million different emotions going on! I didn’t get much sleep last night – Avery is maybe getting another tooth, or a cold, I don’t know and she didn’t sleep too well, and I’m a person who needs sleep or I don’t do well. But other than that – today is a beautiful, sunny, crisp fall day and I have no reason to feel down!

But down is not the only feeling - I feel almost complacent. I hate feeling that way. I have 4 hours to get stuff done this morning (Luke has Lunch Bunch at school and gets to stay until 1PM today) and I honestly don’t feel like doing any of it! I’m hoping that once I drop him off, I’ll be ready to go!

All the feelings aren’t bad because there is a feeling of blessedness, I don’t even know if that’s a word or not – but I do feel blessed. I have a great husband, fun kids (even if they don’t sleep well!), a beautiful house and many great friends and family!

So this morning as I call out to the Lord to ask Him give me what I need to be a productive wife, and a good mother I recall an email I got several weeks ago from a friend. She forwarded it – I believe it was a daily devotional email she got – anyway this quote was there and I really liked it and hope maybe it will help encourage you (and me again) as we start a new week!

“You are the exact Mom (and I would like to add – Wife) God knew your children (and husband) needed. Live in that truth today!”
