Short, sweet, and to the point.

Needing some grace in this season.

Despite my best efforts, my house is messy quite a bit.

I just can't work like I could pre-baby-drop. Too much time on my feet leaves me breathless with contractions (not to mention the nasty cankles that pop up).

So at the end of every day, I make a mental list of the things I got done that day.

For example, today I:
washed a sink-full of dishes (by hand, my friends)
walked to the grocery store
purchased and put away groceries
took a shower
gave Chloe a shower
cleaned the bathroom
cooked dinner

Sure, there are things that didn't get done:
bed making
chloe's room

But I'll put them on the list for tomorrow.
Then (and here's my most important resolution) I will submit that list to the Lord and accept grace for it all - the things that do get done and the things that don't.

It's all I know to do right now... that, and pray that no Samonims show up at my door for a visit.

I don't know how you're getting all of that done! Pregnancy is a unique state, no doubt. Do give yourself a lot of grace and plenty of time to rest and lay around!

Love you :)

Dare I ask what "cankles" are?

Brandy Thixton said...

cankles: where the calves and ankles meet to form one solid mass... commonly found in the third trimester of pregnancy and in really old women.

(also commonly known as swollen ankles)

HA! I'm glad to know that, I guess I have something to look forward to in a few years. ;)
