Blessing Jorryn ~ Days 10 & 11

 

Day 10: Today’s mom focus is joy.

Have you ever noticed how when you decide to work on something, opportunities for practice present themselves constantly? This was day 10. I was supposed to be focusing on joy and every time I turned around, I felt like pulling my hair out. It was not one of those rosey days where you feel like super mom with everything under control. It felt a little more like chaos. There were attitudes, there were tantrums, there were dirty looks. The boys seemed determined to drive me batty. It made the challenge so much sweeter at the end of the day, when I looked back over each small victory. Each time I had felt like screaming but instead closed my eyes and prayed, was a victory. Each hug I gave instead of shouting was another victory. Over the course of the day, I once again recognized that my joy isn’t found in day to day life, but in Christ. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy Domingo, my boys, and our life.. but there are plenty of things every day that could easy make you feel half-crazed and not very joyful. But in Christ there is always joy and hope. So instead of letting circumstances get you down, focus on that instead! {James 1:2 — Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials.}

 

Day 11: Tell your child, “I am so glad you are my son/daughter.”

Who doesn’t want to hear that they’re loved and wanted? Everyone does, no matter what their age! I loved day 11 as it was a reminder to tell Jorryn {and all my boys, really} that they are treasured. Jorryn’s sweet smile when I told him this was a blessing to this mama!
