This is the season for much-to-do… but wait, that’s pretty much every season.
In addition to all the Ohio Family Fun event ticket giveaways I’m trying to get on the blog here (some are done, but there are more to come!) I’m failing in the meal planning department again. (I may have to take a weekend off from my online activities, except for Pinterest which is where my meal ideas are located, to get that area in order.)
And then there’s our homeschooling.
I love it, but there are days when I’m reminded that I could throw in the towel. I shared a post about that at the Prime Parent’s Club.
You can read about it here.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.“
– Philippians 4:13 KJV

Yes, that verse is key to being able to do this job. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people talk about how Jesus helps them at their jobs, dealing with people, and turn RIGHT around and say they could never stay at home with their kids all day. I joke that their Bibles must say “I can do all things through Christ, except raise my own kids because they would drive me crazy”. (Like I don’t go crazy).
I read your article, and I have those days. I even threatened to drop them off at a school last year out of frustration. After I calmed down and apologized, I told myself no matter how hard it is I would never say it out loud again. I haven’t been able to completely get rid of the thoughts of lazy days spent in a cubicle somewhere pretending to work while someone else took care of my kids. But then my happy dream is shattered by the next thought of them staring mindlessly at someone babbling nonsense for seven hours and the wretched God-hating people they would inevitably become, and then hastily thank God again for the opportunity to keep them home even if I don’t feel especially grateful at the moment.
One of my favorite verses. I recite it to myself often.
