A breather

You may have wondered why my posts have slacked off lately. I guess it has been extra busy, and sometimes I just don’t have a post in my head 🙂 I do find Instagram to be a quicker way to document our lives, so you can also follow me at this link if you like 🙂

This week has been good in so many ways, but it’s been a week where I’ve felt stressed out and disappointed in myself and my children. So many times I’ve asked God to please give me patience and wisdom, because I needed high doses of it! Not sure if it was the weather or what to blame it on, but the kiddos behavior this week was not good. Along with that, hubby had been working long days, and some long nights, and I felt the load of being a parent, and farmers wife even more. It made me realize just how hard it would be to parent without the help of a spouse.

I knew I felt snappy too. That’s how I unfortunately get when stressed 😦 And as they say, when Mom isn’t happy… 🙂

There is some decisions to make regarding our little guy, and his learning disabilities, and I feel pulled in different directions. You want what is best for your child, and sometimes that just looks hard. There is so many opinions, sometimes it gets confusing. If you think of it, maybe you could breathe a prayer for us 🙂 This week his behavior has been extra trying, and it’s probably due somewhat to the busyness here, but I made so many mistakes, and lost my cool way too often. My birthday came and went, and I always thought that folks at my age had everything figured out, and were mature, and full of wisdom. I am finding out different 🙂

My heart aches for the losses I’ve heard about lately as well. A young mother, and her son, gone so quickly. The earthquake in India. So many hurting, it can seem foolish to worry about the little things. But we do.

I’m praying that I can keep my focus on Christ, where it should be. And I will do the same for you! 🙂 Have a wonderful week!april 2015 005 april 2015 007

  1. Slacked off? I wonder how you are able to do as much as you do. 🙂 This post was meaningful to me because I too have been a work widow lately and it’s always a tough adjustment after winter. I find myself being pulled in many directions, never conquering my to do list.
    I’ll pray for you regarding your little guy. I remember making those tough decisions. We had to step out of the box on many things, but God has been so good to us on our journey.

  2. Since school let out of Friday, I’m wondering if I’m gonna have a week like your last one. Stressed and snappy mom does not make happy kids here either.
    Hope you find answers for you guy!

  3. Bless your dear heart, Jo. I know how it is to have weeks like that. So sorry things have been so trying, but there are better days ahead. I am praying for you and your husband to have wisdom and understanding concerning your sweet boy and what is best for him. God is always in control, even when it feels like everything around us is reeling completely off track. Keep encouraged, and know that you are doing a great job, in spite of being human. 🙂 If you ever need to “talk”, always feel free to email me anytime.

    I can identify with you as you make decisions for your son, and also the confusing ness of so much advice & feeling pulled apart:( But God Cares & we can come to HIm and pour out our heart & seek wisdom & understanding thru Him! Praise God! I will lift you to the Lord as you seek his will! Blessings as you sacrifice so many hours working with your dear & precious son!

  5. Been praying for y’all…I don’t understand exactly what you’re facing, but I know our Father does. Hope you find answers and peace about the decisions. Hugs!!
