Today I have the comfortable ache I have grown accustomed to.  The ache that means I went to aerobics the day before.  I keep thinking that I will get used to it and it will no longer make me sore.  However, day after day, week after week my muscles still ache.  So now I embrace the pain.  Befroe I started aerobics, I had different pain-my right knee hurt all the time and sometimes my left would join the chorus.  I have decided that pain is just part of life...in almost every way.

I am having a good week, so far.  There have been many moments over the weekend that I was extremely proud to get to be the mom of these girls of mine.  It's like God knew I was at the end of my rope and feeling like a total failure as a mom.  He then gave me some tiny glimpses of what HIS girls are growing into.  Sometimes I forget and think they are merely an extension of me and forget that they are each their very own unique selves with God given gifts and plans for their lives.  I don't know why he decided to entrust them with me, but I feel confident they will turn out just fine, either with some guidance from me or despite guidance from me-not sure which one applies.  I think it varies from day to day.

Today, I am really working on getting some household chores done.  Mount Washmore is only a small mountain but all other chores are off the charts out of control.  I'm so pissed that this is how I spend all my free time excited to show love for my family by being a maid servant.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Brings to mind the refrain "Hurts So Good". I'm so proud of you for sticking to aerobics.

It must be so nice having such a good maid like you!
