Quiet mornings are far from happening in a house with kids. It’s not bad of course. Noise and tiny voices here and there are good because you know people are alive and active in the house.
In the house, however, our mornings usually start off chaotic; the busy movements of kids going to school, the cooking, the drama of constantly not wanting to go to school or being too sleepy to go to school-— all these in a span of one hour or less. When everyone is gone, it feels like the “calm after the storm” moment.
That sigh of relief of overcoming the first hard task in the morning.
Then I sit down and have my own quiet time for myself. I know for some, they do this first then face their day. I used to do that as well, but for this season, this is how manageable things can be for me.
This is my favorite part of the day so far for this season of my life. It may change when situations change or the kids grow older, so for now, I’ll enjoy this.
If you are in this season as well, remember that this stage will pass so quickly that you won’t notice that they have all grown-up already. That is according to parents with teenagers and grown-ups who have crossed this road before. I find that true because, whenever I look at parents with babies and toddlers, I remember my younger days when I would be carrying a baby in one hand, while holding the middle child in the other and instructing the eldest in front of me where to go. Then I smile thinking “I survived that stage.” Funny, because when I was there I kept thinking of how I could do it not knowing that every day is a step towards finishing that season.
How about you? How’s your morning? Is it as chaotic or active as mine?
I hope you find your quiet part of the day to just get charged whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Whatever it is, just keep re-charging. ♥️
Have a nice day! May you wait on the Lord today as you renew your strength.
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
