today... I am praying for patience.
because I feel I have none.

Meritt, is being a real pill this week.
It is so trying.
It is so exhausting.
I am out of ideas of how to make her behave.
I love her with all of my heart, but I'm tired.

It's the 11th day of December.
The to-do lists are piling up around my ears...
yet, here I lay in bed typing this...
lacking motivation. BIG TIME!

So, I'm going to say a little prayer. (or maybe a big one!)
Go get in a bubble bath, and hope that my inspiration, and motivation will come.
Today is the day to...
decorate my house for Christmas
get a Christmas tree
get some projects done
check things off the to-do list

then maybe I will relax a little!
anyone else out there feeling the same sorts of things?

I totally get this post. This is a really tough time of year, especially for Moms. We often get caught up in the "shoulds" of the holiday and overlook the beauty of it all. I know I struggle with that myself. I hope your bubble bath helps and that you end up having a wonderful day with the family and creating beautiful Christmas memories!

I am totally feeling you. I am finding myself getting tired with my oldest and I just can't seem to find my Christmas spirit yet, which makes me sad because this is the first year we get to celebrate Christmas with my wee one. I am hoping the spirit will find me soon. I hope motivation finds you soon too.

Oh my goodness do I ever feel the same way most of the time this season. I'll be saying a little prayer myself to get out of my little funk & while I am at it, I'll add you in on that prayer too :)
