Just Chattin

I came across a really wonderful blog post today (Lisa-Jo Baker) and I realized I was in the process of writing a blog post in her comment section!  So I sent in my comment and realized I have more to say about this topic!

God has called me to do the unthinkable: Homeschool my 12-year old step-daughter who has down syndrome.  I also have two other kids with aspirations of one or two more.  

My life is crazy and a lot of times incredibly overwhelming.  Some days I just need to have a good cry on my husband’s shoulder – and the tears always start over something silly (like an American Idol song. No joke). Every day is full and every day I am being stretched far beyond a capacity that I thought possible.  

Insecurities tell me I am not good at homeschool and I do a poor job of being a mom.  But I just have to remember that’s not truth.  And I tell myself: “I think that’s not true.  Actually I’m pretty sure that’s not true.  Honestly, there is now way that’s true!” God put me here in this season for His purpose.  That’s good enough for me. 

‘Nuff said.  And actually I didn’t touch this from copying it from my comment.  I guess I said all I needed to say…

  1. I've had that happen often: where I realize in writing a blog comment — I could have used it as an entire blog POST. LOL

    and if God put you there — HE will equip you to the task as well!
