Our days move along like a river; turbulent and challenging, and then slow and quiet. One minute things seem to be moving along at a nice and restful flow and then without warning I am interrupted with chaotic pandemonium.
This is especially difficult when we are schooling. Today has already started off with a BANG... broken sink faucet that took over an hour to fix, fights among children while Kalyn and I are trying to take care of the problem, hurt feelings (mine)...
Today brings up why my last Home Education Pillar is very important to me;
I am a mother first.
Home educating is a responsibility I have, just like I am responsible for our meals, and other areas of our home. And some days it is so hard to deal with the interruptions. I like to do our school schedule from 8 - 12 noon. And I feel really frustrated when this gets messed up.
Yesterday, one of my darlin’s had an emotional breakdown that pretty much took up 45 minutes of our school schedule. But what helps me at these times is to remind myself that I AM A MOTHER 1ST. And I really do love Motherhood!
And, if I could I would develop this thought a little more, but there are several little interrupting darlin’s that are misbehavin’. So I need to go mother.
So my last thoughts on this....
Of course you love your children, but make sure that you love your career of motherhood too!
“It’s not enough to love our children; we must love motherhood! It is only when we embrace motherhood that we enter into the joy of it and begin to experience the fullness and anointing of motherhood that God intends us to walk in.” Nancy Campbell
