“Praise lifts our eyes from the battle to the victor. Praise drives away frustration, tension, depression and fear. Praise cleanses the atmosphere, get rid of all the smog and fog so that we can see clearly who is in control. Our focus is drawn from the complexity of the problem to the adequacy of God’s infinite resources.”

I visited a blog by a mother recently whose son died of Meningoccoal disease three years ago, and I was so touched by the story, as if he is my son. In addition, I actually cried while reading what she wrote. My mind begins to wonder bit by bit goes deep into the heart and imagining the worst thing could happen to my children. As a result after the crying and the wandering mind, I feel so helpless. Have you ever experienced similar situation?
What do you feel most helpless about in your life or in your children’s lives? Bring that very need and your sense of helplessness about it to God today.
Thank You, Lord, that You meet moms in all the cries and everyday problems of our children’s lives and our own lives. Thank You even for our helplessness because that draws us to You. I want to trust You and believe that when we call to You, You are there. Thank You that we don’t have to have the problems figured out, that we can merely bring ourselves and our children to You and know we are safe in Your hands.
She turns 3 years old on April 27. She insisted that she is 2 years old. “I am 2 years old, I don’t like number 3″ She said. Still doesn’t like to wear dress and skirt. She will only wear skirt on her birthday say this girl.
Outside the house insist daddy holding her hands and always want to be with daddy. But inside the house only want mummy. Love to check the brother school bag, she say she is checking his homework. She’ll put out the entire book and check one by one. Loves cleaning the TV monitor. Loves checking the elder brother sleeping just incase he’s not wearing blanket.
Happy birthday sweetie.
Yes I am, sometimes. No wonder people say stay at home requires 100% commitment and 200% patient. However, I have learned to stay calm and enjoy every moment with them. Being an impatient mom I have learned so much from my kids. Many discoveries about me from my first year as SAHM (Stay-at-home-mom) that will be another post sharing my first year experience as SAHM.
So, are you depressed at home with your children? Take it easy and enjoy them while you can.
How do your kids behave at shopping complex? As for my two kids, as soon as they step into mall, they start making noise, jumping, shouting, running, hide in between the clothes rack. I find myself constantly saying “stop running, this is not a play ground”. Their favorite spot is the toys area.
My boy loves to run from a point to point. Often time when we can’t find him, hubby and I have to go separately to look for him and sometimes we wasted our time searching for him. My boy has a history of missing at the shopping mall when he was only one a half year. He went inside the lift by himself. So it’s like a trauma to me.
Ok.. So I have decided to buy my own domain. My kids (A & B) have recovered from the vomiting episode. A (Allan) tests is over (he missed his 1st day test) B (Bethany) though has recovered but she is still complaining of her stomach ache.
Baby C is over 3 months now he is able to lift his head and flip his body.
