Y’all yesterday was a day! I have back to back calls the Joy and Justice were winey, JJ would not take a nap (so I missed out on my 2 hours of silence 😢) JJ kept hitting his sisters there was crying all around I had been yelling all day the kids were not listening and in time out left and right and I wanted to pull my hair out! I just wanted out the house! I needed a break but guess what I had No One to switch out with !

What do you do when you have no one to take your place so you can rejuvenate ! Who do you call! Honestly, all I did was sit and cry! When I began crying my kids turned and looked at me and came and sat next to me. At that moment nothing else mattered! Dishes were in the sink food on the table, food on the floor, toys everywhere , a work Conference call was on speaker in the background and all I could do is cry! As I sobbed, I whispered help me Jesus! To all my mama’s we have these days and there nothing I can say or tell you todo that will make a change in these moments. But I can tell you a name to call and that’s Jesus! That name will give you strength to get you to the next minute of the day! It’s ok to just stop and sit and cry! You can’t do it all and be everything to everyone all the time all at once! The Lord sent the Holy Spirit to be your helper so let him help you! Allow the Lord to help remove unrealistic expectations of yourself ! During Rona (COVID) you are a Mama, teacher, employee, housekeeper and chef!! Give yourself some Grace !!!! Remember Mama you are Blessed !!

    My poor baby. Just a reminder that you don’t have to be Super Mama all of the time. You do have help and it’s only a phone call away. However, you did the right thing. When you feel you are at the end of your rope just tie a knot, hang on and call on the names of Jesus!! He can get to you faster than I can. I love you beyond measure ❤️❤️🙏🏽
    YOUR Mama
