Being a mother brings me a lot of joy - and also exhaustion! Luckily I have found ways (nutrition, exercise, reiki, minfulness) to keep me sane and smiling - happy mama = happy sons (and the other way round)
Sometimes we complain about the cross we bear, not realizing that its preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot. This is eye opening! Let GOD be in control. not us! He knows what we're facing, HE will see us through!
