Motherhood; A Race Worth Running

I don’t know about you, but there are times I just fall right off the meal planning train. You know that good intentioned printed sheet with food items scheduled to make and eat each day. Sometimes, my best efforts to plan still end in failure and that’s OK. I think?

However, as my loving husband put it “I hit an all time domestic low. ” Uh-oh! What did I do?  Do you want to guess? 
 I sent him to work with a can of soup. Nope, it wasn’t homemade. There was no fancy sandwich and no spectacular dinner left overs. The soup was organic and gluten free but none the less my lack of planning officially has caught up to me. Good thing for Gods grace and an understanding husband. 
The truth is life sometimes just gets crazy, we get tired, and well, sometimes we just don’t want to do it. We don’t want to shop, cook, clean, teach, or do work: but, we do it regardless.
It is these moments I am reminded to “embrace my calling” as a mother. The services I provide to my family, my attitude, and my perseverance to run this race that so many mothers have run before me, really does matter.
