the Mondays

I think I've got a case of the Mondays. It's overcast here and we haven't seen the sun in a few days so I think everybody is dragging today. I found this article over on Relevant Magazine today and I think it probably communicates much more clearly and eloquently my thoughts from my last post.

I do want to say that I know my last post has the potential to be considered selfish. I've been wrestling with selfishness a lot lately. One thing I've learned since becoming a mom is just how self-centered I am. It makes me appreciate my own mom that much more (thanks for putting up with me mom if you're reading this :)! I do really believe though that by taking time for myself to enjoy life I will be a better mom, wife, campus minister, and every other role I play in the long run.

Oh well, gotta run for now, I've got a crying baby who's vying for my attention, more thoughts on this later!

  1. Your previous post was not self-centered, it was honest. As a mom I often feel bad about taking time to myself, but when I do the whole family is rewarded because my attitude is so much better! Thank you for reminding me to take time for me! Oh, this weekend we let laundry sit in the wash for 2 days, with is really odd for us, and I just kept thinking about your post!
