Raising God Seeking Children
I haven't been feeling up to my standards lately. AND normally I would NEVER tell anyone. I usually try to keep things on the down low and to myself, so that I don't bother anyone. But then after much thought and prayer, I've come to the idea that if I don't share then I won't get any help, compassion, or a place to be safe. AND I keep hoping and praying that I am making an environment for my children and husband to be open and honest, so I guess that I don't have to try to be perfect and superwoman all the time. I can't expect them to do something that I can not. So I've broke down and admitted that I can not keep up and need to rest a little bit more than I have been accustomed, but only until I feel up to speed again.
I am nearing the end of my second trimester, and felt like I had gotten past the super tired and exhausted stage. But the last couple of days I've felt like I just can't cope or stay awake at all during the day. It's been really hard to function and run my household. I called my dr. because next week I was scheduled to take the the glucose testing and thought it might have something to do with that. So yesterday I went and drank the yummy orange glucola and had my blood drawn, hopefully they will have some sort of news that will help me figure out how to feel better.
On a more exciting note, I received a gift from my sister in the mail for my birthday. She knew that I had gotten rid of most of my maternity clothes and am in great need, so she shopped for me. She also sent some of the most adorable little one piece summer newborn outfits for my new baby girl. As you can imagine, it's a little girl's wonderland at my house and you'd also think that we'd be used to such fru fru little girl stuff. I don't think that I'll ever get over how small, cute, precious, and sweet those little outfits are. My girls awwwwed and cooed over them and begged to put them on their build a bears. And sure enough they were tiny enough to fit! We are so excited for our new Abigail, Allyson, Auralee, or baby A something! My sisters are so sweet. I just keep having these foofee little girls and they keep gifting, supporting, and spoiling us! For those of you who don't know us well, both of my sister's have only boys.
So in conclusion, sometimes the best way to be successful raising your children is by being an example. We all know how much of an impact that makes.
