Mothers Day... in closing.

First of all I hope that you all had a fabulous mother's day. Mine started out the same as every morning, kids waking up before me and me not wanting to get up just yet. If I had it my way I'd sleep until 10 everyday. LOL!! But in real life that isn't possible. Lately I haven't been sleeping well. My darling daughter has been wanting to come in my bed at night. That's fine if she would sleep but she wants to talk. OH BOY!! The first time she did this a few weeks ago was a real bonding experience. We cuddled, talked and giggled (yes at 3 am) I really enjoyed that time because I realized later that it was probably the first time in years that it was just her and I, no interruption's. But now she wants to do it every night. Guess we had too much fun. OOPS!! When you have more than one child it is hard to give your 100 percent. Add a husband to the mix, you stretch yourself thin. You cook, do laundry, clean, bathe the children etc. it would be nice to get a break. Anxiety sets in. I have had my share of that. I thought it was gone but a couple of months ago it creeped back into my life. I want it to leave!! But there are some verses that comfort me.

"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exhalt you. Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you." 1 Peter Chapter 5:6-7

I encourage anyone who has had a problem with anxiety or panic attacks to remember these verses. When your in the midst of it it's hard to, I know. I do it too.  "BREATHE" It really helps. Now let's see when I crawl into bed how long it takes for my darling daughter to climb in too.

  1. I'm praying for you. I struggle with anxiety and fear at times too, although they don't sound as severe as yours. I also find inhaling and exhaling deeply helpful. Those verses are great ones to remember. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Happy belated Mother's Day!
