Mama’s packing is my least favorite part of going away. There is so much planning that is involved and laundry to be done.For each kids I need 2 outfits for each day 3 pair of underwear for each day 1 pair of pjs for each night. Not including all the food, beach stuff and household items.

Now once we arrived I noticed a bag got left at home with most of Joy stuff, I was so mad !! I noticed I was complaining a lot and my husband said at least we have a car and Walmart is up the street. At that moment gratefulness came to my spirit.

I needed to stop complaining and thank God for the opportunity that we had and the means we had to get more items.

So as mama’s as we are doing things we may dislike or may be difficult and or forget items let’s Thank God for the opportunities he has placed in front of us and for the people he puts in our lives to help change our perspective. Mama’s remember you are blessed !

    Hi Sunshine,
    Jeremie is so right. When you put things in perspective it’s not so bad after all. God has provided all that you need and you didn’t have to go out and buy anything. We have to give God thanks in all things.
    Love you,
    YOUR Mama
