We all get stressed, overwhelmed and most definitely, especially with kids, we get burned out. Some days, I felt like I couldn’t take one more step without collapsing. I raised 3 kids pretty much by myself so I am not exaggerating how stressful parenting can be. With little to no help with mine, there were plenty of times I wanted to quit, give up and just go to my room and never come out. Back in my day, they didn’t have mommy support groups and at the time, I didn’t have a home church to rely on for help in coping with my busy family. I did have one awesome God though! At night,filled with tears from exhaustion and hopelessness, I prayed to God to just give me what I needed for one more day. Let my children know I am sorry for losing my patience, help me to be a good mom and God? Please, Help me to raise good, kind and decent adults. If this story hits home for you, please ask God to come into your craziness and help you before you want to give up! God wants to help so let Him. Have a blessed day!
