Have you ever felt overwhelmed with everything you have to do in order to take care of your family? The feeding, cleaning, schooling, shopping and just being mentally available to them can be taxing. Well, friends, that is the place I’m in right now.
Yes, I have a new baby, she’s 6 weeks old, and obviously that is enough by itself. It takes time to adjust, to get your hormones back on track and to just figure out a schedule that works after having a baby. I get that. It’s no surprise. But, throw in 5 sick kids where one or more of them is up multiple times a night coughing and throwing up for 2 weeks+, now that’s where my struggling comes in!
I have good days and bad days. Optimistic days and pessimistic days. Weepy days and happy days. But, above all, when my strength seems to wain, I just have to take a step back, take a deep breath and realize this too shall pass. And pray. Pray that God will give me the strength to endure another day of this sickness. Pray that my children will get better quickly. Pray that my husband and I will have patience and kindness flowing out of us, because we don’t feel that way most of the time.
So…if you find that I’m MIA here on Sidetracked Sarah, it’s not because I’m gone forever, it’s just because I’ve been sidetracked by life! My family comes first, as I know yours would, too! Please pray for a speedy recovery for our family!!
I hope to be back in full force soon, but until then, you’ll be seeing a set of very random blog posts from me.
In the mean time, don’t forget that today is the very last day you can purchase the Ebook Library for Moms. I told you about it last week, but thought I’d mention that after 11:59 p.m. ET tonight, you will no longer be able to grab these 78 amazing ebooks for one low price! If you missed that post, be sure to check out the description of everything you’d receive, right here. It’s well worth the money spent, just for the free gifts alone!
