Staying Focused

I have been trying so hard lately to stay focused on what God put me on this earth for, to take care of my husband and child (soon to be children). My job is very important, just as important as any job that requires fancy clothes, a new technologically savvy phone and a brief case. God has given me a HUGE job as a wife and a mother. This week has given me a chance to prove to myself that I can stay focused (I have been doubting myself lately). Charlie was sick from Sunday until Tuesday with a strange flu-ish thing that has been going around. Even knowing that it would be dangerous for me to get sick, I never neglected his needs. I took care of him (while keeping him away from Lula Mae) until he was feeling 100% again. I also took on taking care of Lula Mae 100% to keep her from catching the nasty bug. Strangely, with my new attitude, I did this joyfully. God is changing me every single day, and there are times when I just can't believe it. His is so gracious! I want so desperately not to be so self centered, and He is working in me! One day at a time my focus is getting stronger and straighter. Sure, at night after Lula Mae goes to bed I have lots more to do around the house than usual, but the precious moments I spent with her are more than worth it! Yes, I might be a little bit more tired at the end of the day because I don't get as much "down time" as I may have in the past, but I don't care one bit! My life is FULL! So full of wonderful things that I am so grateful for. I thought my life was full before, and it was... full of stress and worry. Now, it is full of joy!

"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24
