Most of my blogs this far tend to be deep and reflective of what God is teaching me, so today I thought I would mix it up a little and post something a little more comedic. Sometimes we tend to get caught up in the seriousness of life that we forget to laugh, and God gave me a reminder of that this morning. I wanted to share with you my thought process during this particular morning in hopes to lighten your mood. 🙂
5-something in the morning: OH MY GOSH I HAVE TO PEE!!! *Jumps up from coma-like sleep and stumbles to the bathroom, realize my nose is completely stopped up, and then stumbles into kitchen to get some nose spray. See a dark shadow in driveway that I assume is Brandon’s Tahoe (I of course didn’t have my contacts in and was still half asleep), then stumble back to the bedroom and call Brandon. “Brandon, are you in the driveway?” “Yes…” “Okay goodnight.”
6:35: Brandon is coming to bed. I don’t have to take Autumn to daycare today, my lunch is ready, I’m going to sleep 20 more minutes…*Back to deep sleep*
6:55: Man I still feel dizzy from sleeping so hard. I wonder if my blood sugar was high last night…
6:57: Crap! What am I thinking?!?! I DO have to take Autumn to day care today!!
7:04: My eyes are way to sleepy to put contacts in…
7:09: Oh I need to get the crockpot out to put supper in.
7:13: I’ll just put my contacts in real quick; I don’t feel like wearing my contacts today.
7:16: *Walking out the door* I didn’t put the food in the crockpot when I turned it on!!!
7:23: *On the way to daycare* “Autumn, do you not feel good honey?”
7:24: Why is she coughing this much?
7:25 Awe, she’s so cute loving on her Minnie doll…
7:26: Oh my gosh she sounds horrible…
7:27: “Autumn, PLEASE stop saying ‘no’…”
7:28: Is she getting what I had? I really don’t want her to have to have breathing treatments…
7:29: Seriously! I will lose my sanity if she keeps saying ‘no’!!!
7:30: *Tells daycare to keep an eye on her and call me if she keeps coughing*
7:32-7:49: Blank thoughts, sooooo sleepy….
7:50: I will make it…I will make it…I WILL make it…
7:59: Walking in the door to work like
8:00: Sitting at my desk like…
I realized after typing all of that how crazy I must have looked rushing through my morning, and I cannot help but laugh at myself. Why do we mommas think we need to have it all together all the time? I am so guilty of this. I tend to want everything on a nice schedule, to stick to a daily routine, and keep everything in balance. I have to be reminded that there’s beauty in the unknown and the best adventures are unplanned.
Today mommas, give yourself some much needed grace. Our Father doesn’t expect you to be perfect, and He gives His grace so freely, so why do we not accept it more? Why do we beat ourselves up for the little things like forgetting to brush our child’s teeth that time, or rocking them to sleep too much, or not realizing they haven’t had a bath in 4 days (whoops…)? Guess what, they WILL survive. They WILL make it. And they WILL still turn out great! You’re doing the best you can do so just breathe and let it go. Tomorrow is a new day. ❤
