After we had gone to the optometrist to pick up my new glasses, and Walmart, the sporting good store (for some new baseball socks) and the car dealership to have a brake light replaced, he says to me.
Do you do this every Friday?
Yeah, pretty much. Except I obviously don't go to the same places every Friday. Just what ever is needed that week.
Geez, he replies, you lead a really boring life Mom.
Thank You, son.
My fourteen year old may think I lead a boring life but I completely disagree. I love my life. My God. My husband and my children. I feel so blessed that I am able to be a stay at home mom.
I was reminding myself today of how blessed I am as I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the weekend calendar and all the dirty laundry spread down my upstairs hallway.
The kids have been fighting a lot this past week. I am unsure why, but it was making me feel like a failure as a mother. Do any of you have those moments?
Anyway, I picked up my Bible and this is the verse I read today.
Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to
each other and to everyone else. Be joyful always; pray continually;
1 Thessalonians 5:15-17
I do believe my family will be memorizing this particular Scripture over the weekend. This mom needs to especially remember the last two words in this verse.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
