Are there times in you life when you just feel totally overwhelmed? This is how I’m feeling nowadays. So much is going on that some days I just want to crawl back into bed because I do not feel that I can keep up.
This year has been FILLED to the brim with appointments. I guess that is to be expected when you have four children and all four of them have separate special needs. Every week it seems another child has another appointment and that makes it seem like we are never home.
Thank goodness we don’t practice formal schooling at home but instead practice relaxed homeschooling. And thank goodness we have good friends who can babysit on a whim when I have a last minute call to head to Charleston where most of our medical needs are met.
Being a Mom is hard. Being a Mom to children who each have a different issue is even harder. And times like this I don’t feel like a Super Mom but I keep going because I know my children need me to. There is no one else who can love them like I do, who can give them things they need like I am able to provide. God knew what he was doing when he chose me as their Mother and he guides me in their care every day. Even when I am exhausted and weary. Even when I’m unsure if I can make another appointment or meet another of their special needs.
I am overwhelmed but I keep going because God leads me to where He needs me to be and I keep following along as long as I can.
It’s official… I’m overwhelmed with all the housekeeping and school, plus my college. I just can’t seem to get it together lately. If I’m cleaning house, I skip schoolwork and if I work on school with the kids, cleaning house gets skipped.
How do I manage all the demands of life?
Add to this, my sinuses are killing me thanks to the beauty of Spring. I love this season but it is NOT my friend, allergy-wise.
The phrase “so much to do, so little time” keeps flitting through my head.
Well, I’m off to do a little research, a bit of organizing and some thoroughly, deep cleaning which I will be continuing until I feel things are properly in place again. Ta-Ta for now.
