14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: A Mother’s Struggle


My goal in life is to have my kids remember me as being a good mother.

I won’t lie and say there are times when I don’t want to be a mother.   I’d don’t want to be a mother to a screaming child, I don’t want to be a mother to spoiled brat and I don’t want to be a mother to a disobedient child.  There are days went I don’t want to be a mother because I want to have the freedom to do what I want when I want.

14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: Accomplishments

I have a to-do list, reminder list, a calendar, but yet accomplish nothing.   I organize myself to remain unorganized.

A list does me no good if I don’t follow the items I set out to accomplish.  I get lazy, I dread doing the chores on my list that I hate and magically find other items not on my list to do.

Finding Meaning

We crave the satisfaction of feeling accomplished.

Ecclesiastes 6:7-9  All man’s effort are for his mouth, yet his appetite is never satisfied.  What advantage has a wise man over a fool?  What does a poor man gain by knowing how to conduct himself before others? Better what the eye sees than the roving of the appetite.  This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

 

Whether you are tackling to accomplish cleaning your home, eliminating debt, losing weight and so on…  Stop thinking about it and just do it!   Just remember any progress you do is still progress.

I’m looking over the bills today and realize we don’t have enough money.  It seems as if we never have enough.  We’ll never be out of debt and debt is a way of life.  We’ll always carry a mortgage payment, car payment and credit card debt.  That’s a fact.

14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: Marriage is Work

My husband and I have been married for 20 years.  My husband helps me around the house, he’s an involved father with our children, we love each other and are a happy couple.  People see this and they envy us, they think we have the “perfect” marriage.  They compare our marriage to their marriage and they just can’t understand why they don’t have what we have.  What they don’t see is roller coaster ride we took to get there.
