Awhile ago I wrote a post about being "on duty" as a SAHM. When I have Noah all day, I'm normally "on duty" from 6:30am to about 8:30pm. Sometimes I'm just "sitting and waiting"
Sitting and waiting for the next need, sitting and waiting to conjure up some energy to do the next chore, cook the next meal. Sitting and waiting for my day to be over with and I can be "off duty". I have to be careful during this season of my life because during my "sitting and waiting" I often times let my mind drift off to thinking I need to be doing something else with my life. But I remind myself now that I am doing exactly what God wants me to be doing right now and I know it for a fact. Sure, it's not necessarily glamorous. Sure, my days consist of pretty much the same stuff. Sure, I get restless at times. But one thing I know..........this all comes with the season of life that I am in right now and I count it a privilege and a gift to be where I'm at in my life today. I am into being the best I can be in every season God has me in. I truly believe I am becoming the best wife I can be and the best mom I can be; only God know what that means but I have seen myself grow and mature and become less selfish and more content in my life and I know that is all part of the fruit of staying focused on the assignment I have right now. I pray I can continue to be focused.
