Fall is back…even though it is a million degrees outside. I’ve lived in Texas most of my life, yet every year I act shocked by the lingering 3 digit temps in September. My summer wardrobe is boring me…and I’m ready for some soup in the crock pot.
Along with the scorching temperatures our Fall activities have heated up. I was missing structure during the summer, but now that I “have” it, I really can’t call it structure…more of a hectic mess! We have had some meltdowns at my house. I have to admit, my kids are not the only participants.
I am embarassed to say how many nights the past few weeks I have sat at my daughters bedside and said one of the following, “Mommy lost it today, I am sorry”, “Mommy should not have yelled, I am sorry”, “Mommy has been really grumpy today, I am sorry”.
Basically, I feel pretty wiped, overwhelmed and concerned about how this new Fall schedule is going to shake out. Life is crazy with toddlers, and more than likely tomorrow morning won’t be any calmer as I load up my kids and head to the Ridge. However, I know one thing in the morning WILL happen. I will sit with a group of women who will spend this Fall praying with me, learning with me and laughing with me. I’m ready for the PLUNGE.
Since I have been a mother, I have learned that God has a thing for moms. God works through Moms when we come together to pray for our children, husbands and each other. I can’t wait to experience what God has in store for the Ridge MOPS this year. I’ll see you there!
P.S. Speaking of the PLUNGE…please note and consider plunging in to the event posted below. It’s a family fun way to make a huge difference. More on it tomorrow!
Can’t wait to meet ya,
