A good feeling
I went to church this morning with the kids in tow but no Chad. He has to work I had told myself I would only go if everyone was up and ready well before 9am so as not to stress me out. (It can sometimes be hard getting the entire crew out the door on my own.) Making excuses why I should not go is very easy for me. As I lay in bed this morning parts of me wanted to just stay there, snuggled deep down in the warm covers. My children had another idea. By 8:10 they were up and three out of four had already decided thy were going to church and were getting themselves dressed. Huh? Who would think? The kids made the decision for me and I got up and going as well. We ate breakfast and trotted off to church. And I am so glad we did. I always leave church with such a wonderful and peaceful feeling in my soul and I needed that today. In the midst of the craziness we call everyday life, it is so calming to be able to sit and just be for one hour a week. So thank you to my children for motivating me this morning and giving me the chance to recharge for our week ahead.
