On Monday I was feeling tired, overwhelmed and irritated. Tonight I feel like I can sit down, relax for a minute, and sigh. The difference?
My wonderful mother-in-law.
I had been going full speed for so long that I felt as if I was headed for a crash. Upon her arrival, though..and even more so in the time since…I have been able to recharge, and move even swifter in all I’ve had to do. Plus, she’s been moving swiftly by my side, so twice as much has been accomplished. Whether it has been tending the kids and thus freeing me up to do all that I have had to do, or taking it upon herself to touch up the paint throughout my entire house so we leave it in tip-top condition, she’s been marvelous. Heck, she’s even been running around with paintbrush in hand with the kids trailing behind her! My boys are happier for the fun they’ve had and the attention they’ve received, and I am happier because my boys are happier. Sadly, she leaves in the morning, but I have accomplished so much in the last few days and regained momentum enough that I know I will survive the next week. And that is precisely what I need to know.
