This month has been challenging for me. Brian deployed to an unknown location for an unknown amount of time. Not knowing details drives me batty!! I have to have my days planned out. I am VERY detail oriented! I am adjusting and I’m pretty sure it’s good for me. However, right after Brian left, I got really sick. I was downright miserable. It’s been only through the daily pleading with my Heavenly Father that we’ve made it through the weeks. Obviously some days are better than others. As to not worry anyone unduly, we are doing just fine.
For mother’s day my Mom and Dad gave me a fun little book on motherhood written by Hilary Weeks. This quote from Elder M. Russell Ballard has been a bit of a theme for this week. ” First, recognize that the joy of motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times. But amid the challenges, there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction….”
I am so grateful for those shining moments and my mostly sweet kiddos! 😉 I truly feel blessed and taken care of, even without my hubby!
