What keeps you going when you feel like you can’t do anymore? Let me give a quick rundown of my life, I work a career job m-f, go to school m-th, and work a second job Sunday nights. Oh an somewhere in there manage to find time to raise my son and do all the daily house chores and life errands. So when Sunday night rolls again and I am exhausted and I have just gotten home from being on my feet for five hours and I still homework what do I do?
Well lets be honest, I want to crawl in bed with son and dream of how fast the hours pass until morning comes and start it all over again. But instead …
I get home and kiss my son and look at how beautiful he looks sleeping. Then I have a feeling come over me, a feeling of remembering why I was put on this earth…to have to blessing of being his mother. So I go into the other room and somehow manage to get my homework done, the last load of laundry put away, my outfit picked out for tomorrow, tomorrows dinner ready to be put in the Crockpot in the morning all before crawling into bed.
I used to wonder how mothers could do it, but I understand now…I keep going because I must, because I have an angel that I am living for now. So when days get hard, and tired becomes an understatement I just look at my sweet son and remember that anything is possible and somehow a new strength comes over me.
