Tonight I am am truely feeling overwhelmed by motherhood and being a wife. We took Drew and Abby to their Boy Scout and Girl Scout meetings tonight. I am happy that they are starting something that they will probably really enjoy....but I already feel overwhelmed with the hectic schedule we have now. It seems hard to imagine squeezing meetings and campouts(btw....I am not a campout type of girl) and fundraisers. Yes, it was the first night, but Abby already got a fundraiser to work on...aaagghhh!!!!!!! I need MOPS again so I can vent this stuff to other women...LOL. I know it is all about perspective. I have survived being widowed with a six year old and two year old twins, so I can handle anything,...right?? I don't know. I feel really weak right now. I am thankful that God had promised us this. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor 12.9-10)

I feel your pain. Schedules can be hectic but the looks on your kids face is sooooo worth it. You are an AWESOME mommy and wife. You can handle it. I don't know you all that well but I do know that you can handle it. If God brings you to it, he will bring you through it. (((HUGS)))
