my life lately

My life lately feels...
~crazy
~busy
~like a taxi driver
~unorganized
~exhausting
~unpredicatable

But it also feels...
~content
~exciting
~lucky
~healthy
~fulfilling
~loved

because even though there is a long list of things that could make me shut down or crawl into a hole the list of good completely outweighs it. I am literally all over the place these days...showing up to conferences at the kids school on the completely wrong day and time or taking my preschooler late on the 2nd day of school...but I try to just laugh it off. The truth is having 3 kids of all ages is pretty insane. While insane it's my job. A job I chose with an open heart which is why I will embrace and love it no matter how wonky it feels at times :)
This is a small explanation why I haven't been blogging as much lately.

"Teach us to give and not count the cost"
-St. Ignatius de Loyola
 
Sunday was the first day of religious education after church for the boys. So this meant we had to go to early church. Well, that didn't work well with our littlest. When it was time to leave she was still asleep so Daddy stayed home and it was just the boys and I. 


And if I'm being honest, I actually loved it. I could sit and listen to the priest's sermon and it couldn't have been more perfect. He talked about having charity in your heart towards others...like the families with small children in the church. He said that the church wants these small children in mass so open your hearts to them when they are struggling. Instead of glaring at them, stop and pray for them. He said some of the strongest people in church are parents with babies or small children because they are doing whatever it takes to come to church and receive Jesus even though it's hard. He also referred to the cry room "as the place between purgatory and hell." That one got a huge laugh and I could oh so relate as that's where we are usually seated when little sister is with us. He also talked about marriage and how the older a couple grows the harder their marriage can become because of sickness and ailments. He reminded everyone to always love your spouse and to have charity towards them by taking small steps to make their life easier. As I left my heart was full and happy. I dropped off the boys and rushed home to hug my little terror in church and my husband. I cannot wait for mass next week where I will proudly take care of my little miss sassy knowing that I am doing exactly what Jesus wants me to.
