Joyful_momma: Picture a young child. She is fighting hard to stay awake. You hold her, knowing she’s tired, and that she needs to let herself fall asleep, but she continues to fight it. It’s as if she’s afraid she’ll miss something.
You softly brush her forehand and watch her heavy eyelids close. You smile as she finally drifts off to sleep, knowing this is what’s best for her right now.
Do you see the connection?
What is it that is important to you? Being an overwhelmed but learned mom and homemaker or being a content mom and homemaker with no guilt?
You did say you know what needs to be done. 🙂
