Complaining 101

I usually try not to complain...but I'm just going to let it out!

I'm stressed out.
So many things in the air.
So many new decisions.
A couple frustrating situations.

I am thankful for our many blessings. But I feel discouraged today by circumstances that are out of our control. But again, I need to be thankful. So I'm going to find humor in the chaos, because that's how I deal.

I'm thankful that it's 4:30pm, and I haven't showered.

I'm thankful that the girls destroyed the bathroom while I was feeding the babies, whole roll in the toilet, sink filled to the top, soap everywhere, and their clothes were off...still haven't figured that one out.

I'm thankful that I've been spit up on 300 times today, which doesn't really ruin anything since I haven't showered yet.

I'm thankful for the bag of Easter candy we got at the Easter egg hunt, that is clearly coming between me and my "get in shape" agenda.

And speaking of Easter candy. If you see me in the holiday candy aisle, please, for the love of all that is holy, hit me over the head with a chocolate bunny, and drag me out of the store. I won't be offended, I promise, I actually think it will bring us closer.

Whew...I actually feel better. Thanks for listening.

I don't need to worry.
I don't need to ask why.
I don't need to be mad.
I just need to trust.

When I feel like this, I start to remember that there are mamas & families out there that are truly going through real hard times, and it brings my focus back.

I need to be praying for Abby.
Praying for Stellan.
Praying for Veiyah.
Just to name a few.
I need to be focusing on Him & His Plan.

Ahhhh, blogging proves to be therapeutic yet again.

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34

I'm impressed... I rarely take all the girls out and it seems like you're out and about a lot! Good for you! :)

I wanted to ask you... I am really struggling with feeling like a horrible mother because I have so little one-on-one time with the girls. And I can rarely give them all the attention they want/need/deserve. How do you deal with it? Any advice?!?!

Thank you! I'm so glad to have you in my life, even via a blog. I'm the only one in my close circle of friends who has four kids, much less twins. I'm thankful for someone to look up to in this whole big adventure!

Sorry you had a crummy day, but thank you for the reminder that the stresses in our lives are just reminders to seek Him!
