Is this you? If so don’t feel as though you’re all alone because it’s millions of women feeling this exact same way. They are saying what are we suppose to do when we are at our wits end? What do I say when people come and tell me that I lacked structure in my home if my kids are getting on my nerves this bad. Well I hate to differ with them but my home is anything but unstructured. From the time they get off the bus they have a list of things to do. It’s not always like this.
Truth be told on days like this it’s not really the kids that are the ones making me feel this way. They just put the icing on an already bad day. They are just kids. It just happens to be one of those days. A day where a bill has come due and I don’t have the money to pay for it. The child support has yet to be deposited into my account. The job I wanted and needed so badly fell through. I am frustrated because I have been by myself for what seems like eternity. My bank account has a negative balance and I have to make dinner out of what ever I can find in my fridge.
Unless someone sits in my seat and does what I do. Then why do they have a right to tell me what I am not doing right. Sometimes I need a pat on the back & someone telling me that I am a terrific mom. Days aren’t always like that it’s just that when they are I need someone to talk to not someone judging me.
Who stays up late nights praying and pacing the floor for God to mend my son/daughter broken heart after daddy has lied to them? Who gets off of work to make doctors appointments, gets a sick child from school, parent/teacher conferences, school plays that are in the middle of the day?
It’s going to be days like this but it doesn’t make you a bad mother. It makes you as normal as any other woman. Know that God hears your deepest concerns and you are the very one he loves to lend a helping hand too.
If you are reading this know I have sat in your shoes and still do at times. But it’s through the grace of God that I can stand firm with my head held high and know that God still sits on the throne. I have learned how to draw from the source of all my needs and through Him I am strengthen to stand against every adversity that comes my way.
Know that God loves you and I do too!
