Monday Moms!

"The Lord’s tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ." - David A. Bednar

I had a very different post that was going to put up here for Monday Moms. It was negative and self-centered... all about not being able to handle it. I was writing to calm my nerves, I was writing because there was no one to talk to, I was writing because I honestly was beginning to wonder if I could handle it. Then a glorious thing happened - both my girls stopped screaming and took a LONG nap AT THE SAME TIME. Oh, I honestly believe this was a blessing from above. I needed the few hours to get a shower, take a much needed nap, and to edit my nasty post that almost appeared here. I am so grateful that the Lord pushes us to our limits sometimes. I am grateful that he remembered me when I felt my limit had been reached. I am grateful for the Lord's tender mercy - it is amazing what a little sleep can do for your perspective.

Heavenly Father is watching out for you!! That is awesome that everyone was able to take a much needed NAP!! You can never have TOO much sleep!! It is always needed! Remember if you ever needed anyone to talk to I am just a phone call away!! Love you!

OH Cyndi~
What an awesome example you are. I'm so blessed to know you. I'm right around the corner, you're always welcome to call or stop by -maybe I'll have to relieve you one day.
I think you're such an amazing mother - those two girls are sure lucky!

Cyndi, I know exactly how feel, but that does not make your struggles any less significant. I am so happy you received such a blessing today! I have had many of those times where I thought the next moment would be my breaking point, so but somehow after a quick prayer, some kind of mercy is upon me. Amazing isn't it? You're not alone, and you are a wonderful mother!

I am a blog slacker as you probably know so I am just reading this post, but honestly i can totally relate and you SO aren't alone! Two kids is crazy and everyday I wonder if I can do it all and just want to complain. But I have had so many moments like that where we are reminded that we can handle it and our whole attitude changes! I'm so happy you replaced the post with this.
