{five minute Saturday::Grateful}

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions.
Whether it was potty training a very opinionated 2 year old who still refuses to go #2 in the potty (pray for me) or hearing of he a momma who lost her sweet boy too soon, this week has a been roller coaster.
In the midst of all the madness and chaos it was very, very difficult to find something to be grateful about. And then my sweet boy would flash his beautifully gigantic gummy smile and all my worries and cares were thrown to the way side.
This week I was reminded that sometimes motherhood is messy, emotional and down right stinky, but I am forever grateful that I was chosen to be the mommy to my three spunky, wild, precocious, loving babies.  
once I am linking up with Lisa Jo for 5 minute Friday.

{jumbled thoughts}

my mind feels like mush.
this last week has been taxing.
there were words, there was yelling and there were tears, lots of tears.
And in the midst of the chaos and tears of the week was this little face.
I believe all children a gift and blessing from God, but this little guy has a little extra something special.
This little guy is a constant reminder of God's love, mercy and grace. He makes me smile when all I want to do is cry. 
I have a confession...I've been avoiding the blog, actually I've been avoiding all blogs. I needed a break of the blogging the world. with so much going on at home, I needed to focus on my family, so I took a break from blogging, blogs and the internet for a week. I feel so refreshed and ready to jump back in.
This year has been a year of growing and stretching. God has been stretching me in crazy ways and while most times it's hard to swallow I'm grateful for it nonetheless.
there is so much I want to do, so much I want to accomplish and so little time. I learning to prioritize and make room for those things and I must admit, it's tough. sometimes, as a mom, I don't feel like I'm doing enough. there always seems to be one more thing I can be doing for my family...sometimes I let my inadequacies and shortcomings get the best of me, but then I am reminded of God's unfailing love and mercy that is new every morning.
