I know a gal named Patience. I’m now wondering what was going through that Mom’s mind when she named her….
When T and I decided I would leave the workforce to come home to raise our Sammy, a friend of mine who already had 2 boys said of our decision “Oh, I could never do that! I don’t have the patience!”
Stopping by a homeschooling friend’s house (also a mom of 2 boys…I’m noticing a pattern) some time ago, I noticed she looked rather frazzeled and her sweet giggle was missing….
This is where I am today – looking for my patience. And sadly, I think I’m the biggest part of the problem! I’ve gone to bed way past my bedtime for at least 3 nights in a row – which means I haven’t woke up on time. I’ve had no nap the past 2 day. My house is in disaray. And yet, school must carry on.
So here I am, needing to go fix us some lunch and needing just a few minutes to escape…and search for my happy face that’s somewhere with my patience!
It’s going to be ok. I knew this would be a process. If my head was in the clouds, it’s out this week. Tomorrow is another day of no school b/c of ML membership brunch. I think I’ll offer up ANOTHER prayer for God’s wisdom and request for peace in the midst of interruptions and ETC.
