overwhelmed maybe...a little vent

sometimes everyday life can feel a bit overwhelming...every so often the reality of the responsibility of it all hits me, takes my breath away for a second and i get a little panicky.  
 i mean yikes! four kids! four individual souls that have needs, issues and personalities...and i'm responsible.
 holy moly! how did we get here??
plus there's a house to keep clean,


a marriage to invest in,

meals to cook

school to teach, 
laundry to tame,

friendships and family to nurture

not to mention my own heart to keep in check...ahhhh!

goodness gracious. i know its not really a lot, it just feels that way now and then...
and i know life really is sweet. in sooo many ways. and i know its up to me to see jesus in the midst of the crazy, and to believe that he is there to offer grace and JOY in the moment. i just have to do it.
so, thank you instagram for making it so easy to capture the sweet moments sprinkled throughout the overwhelming and chaotic that would be lost otherwise. 
and thank you jesus for giving me this life and these little munchkins to raise. i am grateful.
vent over. thank you for listening.

I applaud you for being able to take care of four children, a relationship, and yourself. I can barely do it with one :)

Even your vents are so well done. Girl, it may seem overwhelming, but you do it all with such grace! :)

Thank you! I don't even feel like overwhelmed is a sufficient word for what I feel some days but you are soooooo right, life is sweet! Love you!

I love this - I get those moments of panic-iness too. You are so right to lean on Jesus and embrace the crazy.
