As a single mom;
there are some days that I feel in over my head,
too many places to be..
too much to do..
not enough time.
some days I feel guilty and helpless;
when my son came home the other day and I knew
he must go back on that bus..
and I knew I had to go back to work..
and that I could not just make this all go away,
I felt helpless.
some days I feel tired..
ok..so alot of days I feel tired.
and then there are days..
that I feel empowered.
I feel empowered when circumstances allow me
to provide extra for my children.
I feel empowered when I realize that I am with my kids,
and we are doing things..
and being together,
and I am completely comfortable in my role.
I feel empowered
when I realise we are really living life..
this is our life,
and most of the time we are living it well!
and then sometimes the SMALLEST things
make me feel like SHERA queen of the jungle..:)
tonight I changed the light bulbs...
in the ceiling lights! ALONE!
but big when you consider we have been using flashlights!
(Sad I know.)
as the whole idea of climbing up high;
(ok..I have a fear of heights and standing on a chair..is HIGH!)
and figuring out how to get the light off the ceiling,
freaked me out!!:)
so there is a first time for everything..
and the small things
cause us the greatest growth.
sometimes the big things are unavoidable..
but we can go a long time without having to do the small things!
SO when we do..
and the light bulb literally goes on;)
I can do the big and the small..
one more day..one more moment.. a lifetime of learning still to go!
