Recently, I have been faced with an unexpected challenge of helping my son take care of his one year old. Relationship circumstances led my son and grandson to move back home with me. So, all of a sudden, I’m getting up at 4 am to fix a bottle, changing diapers and fighting a very strong-willed little boy to take a nap. Of course, I love them with all my being; but let’s face it, I did my time parenting and I was a lot younger doing it! So how do we handle the unexpected? The same way with every other surprising life event, we pray! I’ve been hitting my knees a lot the last few days just asking for the strength to get me through one more day. As I drag myself to bed at the end of the day, I know my God is helping me every step of the way. He knows the plan He has for me, even if it is a total mystery to me! Embrace the challenges you may be facing and know God is making a way even when we don’t see it. Have a blessed day!
