Well I am not sure where to go from here. I have a lot of different subjects started. We are working on organizing, and being creative. There are so many directions I would like to go. There are plenty of areas I would like to cover. But for now. It is important to keep moving forward, but also to stay focused. Something at the moment I do not feel like doing.
I feel as if the last few days I have just been running, constantly. There has actually been a lot going on. With Halloween and two kids, and some extended family events going on; I am tired.
In life there are no excuses.
You can’t take a sick day from being a parent. You do not get time off. You do not have a ton of room for error either. I would like my kids and future grand kids to remember me for the things I did for them every day. I want them to be fed, clothed, and kept alive. But I also want them to get to enjoy the little lives. I want them to have fun. I want them to get to be kids, and know in their hearts that they ARE blessed.
So yesterday, and today, I sort of took a day off. But it was not total lazy time. Everyone had eaten, everyone got family time, we had some simple crafts and time outside. Yet I still made sure it was too be a bit relaxing for everyone. All of them, are tired too. They are just as worn down as I am. It is not fair for me to think that I am the only tired, cranky, or hungry one in my house; because I am not. When we are all on the run. When we are all out doing things, and since we are all trying to make sure everyone is happy; It is not fair for us to expect so much more out of my kids then we can personally handle ourselves.
I am the adult. I am the one that needs to handle things. My husband and I are a team. We work TOGETHER to make sure everything runs functionally. We count on each other. We count on our kids to follow the directions given. Not every time, though yet, because we are still working on that. They are still just little. We have time. They still know, as a family we are a team.
I realize in a lot of families mothers and fathers are not always a team. I realize that in some families the kids have more responsibilities that are relied on. But as a family; As a whole. YOU ARE A TEAM.
Unique Advice For Today: YOUR FAMILY IS A TEAM!!
Some families do not understand, pulling their own weight, taking responsibility for their OWN actions and growing together as a team is what makes your family stay glued together as one. It is what will keep your family whole. Even coming from a broken family, you are not broken to the point of no return.
The point behind this reality, is meant to let you all know there is still time to make a team out of your family.
I want my family to know their part of something important. Because my family is important. At least they are to me. I do not know what I would do without them.
But, my responsibilities, my job, my husband’s job, my kids’ jobs they are not inner changeable. My kids can not be responsible for my job, I can not do my husbands job, and my husband can DEFINITELY NOT do the kids’ jobs. When we all do our job, when we all work together; everything is not perfect by no means. However, everything works much better in our day to day lives.
We were blessed to be a family. We were blessed to be a part of the same family. We were also very blessed to have been given one another. I love ALL of my family with my whole heart and that will NEVER change.
