I’m sitting here laughing at this post because today I was supposed to share our school room and what curriculum we’re using this year and yada yada…sorry, this is not that post.
You see, I started this morning with high hopes and sharp pencils and a highlighted lesson planner, but when at breakfast of this sunshiney day you see a mouse in your kitchen…something that’s never happened to me before…things tend to go downhill.

Its just a mouse. It is. But I feel like it’s compounded with a whole lot of other things, making me tired and worn out.
When I list my blessings vs. my struggles, the blessings always outweigh. They always win. Besides the big things like health and togetherness, there’s the small ones that add up like:
-the dryer running meaning laundry is getting done
-the smell from the slow cooker meaning dinner is done
-reservations just made for a homeschool day at the Biltmore Estate
-tickets booked today to go back home not once, but twice this fall (!!)
-fitting into old jeans
-Vera taking a long nap
-a public format to vent (lucky you)
-a MORNING date scheduled for Saturday

there are so many good things.
I just want to end by saying…if you’re going through some stuff right now? I feel you. I really do. Life is hard sometimes. And sometimes we can laugh it off and sometimes we can’t. But please, mamas, please know that it is real hurt…it is. Our feelings are valid. They mean something. Let’s trust together that things will get better and we’ll come out the other side with toned muscles and good stories to tell, surviving what didn’t kill us and made us only stronger.
The mouse is still in here somewhere. Probably bathing in my flour or something annoying right this very minute. I hope he enjoys it, because he’s gonna die.
And tomorrow will be better.
And then I will share curriculum.
