It's Hard Keeping Up

There is nothing new about the fact that it is difficult keeping up. As a mother of four children ranging in age from 16 to 6, keeping up with everything is tough.

Like many moms I feel as if I spend the majority of my time driving. I drive to baseball games, baseball practice, doctor's appointments, church outings, church, vocal practice, school, grocery store, Target, here, there, and everywhere.

I feel like I can't keep up. I miss things, I read e-mails incorrectly, I schedule dentist appointments during times that are occupied with other appointments, I forget to return phone calls, and miss voice mails, and that's coming from a person who is highly organized. Yikes.

I don't take one day at a time, I take one section of the day at a time. Please don't ask me about this evening until I get through this morning. I can't discuss tomorrow until I get through today.

I however, in the thick of feeling as if I cannot keep up, love that God strengthens me each moment. I love that I can run to my Father and cast my cares on Him. I love that each day I get to breathe, live, and enjoy my family.

It's hard keeping up, but I love trying.

"With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."
Mark 10:27
