Have you ever felt like you were drowning in life because you had so much to do and you never had time for your family? I have wanted to be a good mother to my children and life keeps getting in the way—until now.

As I began to pray, I started to see how the Lord has blessed me with a wonderful family. While I am having a hard time with balancing my life, He is showing me that I have a lot to be thankful for. No matter what I go through-the pain I may feel, the stress of homework I’m trying to get through, my children running off at the mouth-I’m grateful for the group of blessings in my life that God saw fit to entrust me with. 

As I think on that, it makes me feel like I have gifts in my life that I need to take very good care of. God gave me these blessings and I need to first give them back to Him in order for Him to use them as He pleases, and then, I need to nurture them in a way that they grow up to know who they are in Christ. I cannot take for granted any longer the moments I have with my children because I do not know how much longer I have with them and I must take each precious moment and make them memorable. 

I have been stressed out, and I sometimes wanted to send my children away because I had been so tired from all the busyness I continue to pile onto myself, but God is showing me that time waits for no man, and if I don’t show up in their lives now, they won’t remember the “good times” because there will not be any to remember (tears flowing).
