Do you ever get to the end of the week and want to throw yourself face down on the floor and kiss the carpet simply because you made it?
Today happens to be one of those days.
When my boys were little I dreaded Monday because I knew my husband would have to go back to work and leave me alone with a less furry version of Thing One and Thing Two. Friday meant VICTORY. We survived another week alone at sea. We made a touchdown. We crossed the finish line. You get the point. I’m pretty sure it’s the closest thing I’ll ever experience on an athletic level.
This week marked a couple of BIG milestones for my family.
1. Our house is finally on the market.
2. My 7th grader started school…as in he’s no longer being home schooled.
Today I can’t shake any pom poms and declare any kind of victory other than WE MADE IT. There were moments this past week when I felt like my chest was going to explode from the stress. If I owned a pair of running shoes, I’m pretty sure they’d be worn out from the treadmill I’ve been on this week. I seriously doubt the stressful stuff is over, but I’m celebrating today anyway.
This is the promise I’ve been hanging onto this week:
Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing. Isaiah 26:4 The Message
At a time in our lives where very little is a sure thing, we need to know that in the Lord God we have a sure thing. Amen?
If you’re feeling like you deserve a medal just for making it to today like I do, please step up to the platform and allow me to congratulate you. Well done!
YOU MADE IT! Enjoy your weekend. Lord knows you’ve earned it.
P.S. Next week I have the honor and privilege to be a guest blogger over at Glory Girl who also happens to be my bff. Julie has a series this month called “I Spy…Jesus” that I know you’ll enjoy so hop on over and check it out.
