Am I the only mom in the whole world that feels like I'm a complete failure at balancing my life? Work, kids, homework, housework, laundry, bills, cat, dog, husband, car maintenance, kids activities, rest, time for ME (backburner) - it's so much to keep up with and feel like you are doing an adequate job in each area. And trying to read my bible and keep up with some of my shows on tivo. I should be able to watch some things too - right? Anyways, I just feel like I'm really struggling right now with trying to balance it all. I'm completely exhausted - not sure if I ever really gave myself enough time to really recover from my major back surgery back in July, 2009. That seems like forever ago, yet seems like yesterday. I'm almost at my 6mo mark from surgery. The body is amazing at what it can do, so much that we can take advantage of it. It's 6:43 in the morning and I've been up for an hour and a half. I'm sitting at work trying to figure out what order to get all my stuff done in. So I'm going to be human and tackle things one at a time so I can make sure I give my full attention to each thing I try to accomplish. I wish a good day full of accomplishments to all.

I know what you mean. A couple months ago i was studying, working, taking care of my kids, cooking, cleaning, etc. etc. etc. And it was overwhelming when no matter how much I tried to schedule my day, if I had gotten two things done, it was an achievement. Today I'm a stay at home mother and it still seems like theres more to do than hours in one day. I've had to learn to slow down and enjoy each moment I can, even if theres a pile of clothes begging to be washed. The precious moments are those that are spontaneous . . .not the ones you meticulously plan . . .

You are DEFINITELY not at home.

I started my day off blogging just to gain some attention to the task at hand - lots of work. Don't be overwhelmed. What you get done in a day is what you were meant to do that day and nothing more.

We do not really order our own steps, so have faith that you are not disappointing yourself in not completing the little things in life. Commit to what's important.

My message to you is also a message to myself this chilly morning.

Be blessed.
