Does your life look like the picture in this post? Is time going so fast that you have no idea what day it is? The last time you had a shower, date night with your hubby or spent quality time with each of the kids?

The Lord reminded me today while dropping off papers to my sons school WHY I AM A STAY AT HOME MOM! 

A 9th grade young lady at our school lost her 10 year old brother yesterday suddenly, however the worse part is their dad is on his way home from Iraq and has no idea that his son has passed. 

The father’s brother in law was in the office explaining what happened. My heart was just breaking for the father and family. I couldn’t imagine coming home to this kind of news.

In the mist of my heart ache the Lord reminded me of having a Thankful Attitude for every situation. Even though this situation was not directly mine, it affected me deep inside. I am very thankful that I have been called to be a mother/wife, and take these rolls very seriously. Thankfulness is not some sort of magic formula; it is the language of Love, which enable us to communicate intimately with God.

I embrace the “little things” , like getting up extra early so that I can tickle my little one out of bed every morning. Or picking my older son up from school to ask him “How was your day” or greeting my husband at the door when he arrives home from a stressful day at work. Its those little things that I am reminded WHY I STAY AT HOME. 

Most dont have enough time to notice these “little things” because they have to be to work before their kids go to school, or they have to work late and miss a sports event or better yet there is NO time for them at all because one is just too tired. 

I thank God everyday that when it is my families time to go that yes I will be sad, I can still be thankful at the same time, that I cherished every single moment, little or big, with them and can rest in knowing that I will see them again oneday.

May you take time out to SLOW DOWN and cherish every single moment with your loved ones. May you make choices that are best for your family and not yourself. May you embrace motherhood and being a wife as the most important thing you can do on this earth, till the Lord calls YOU home.

You have NO idea when the Lord will call them home!

 Serving With Joy,

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
