My husband & children are my first priority (other then my relationship with God) my responsibility is to put them first. Instead of thinking I am going to do this or that after they go to bed (don’t get me wrong I do believe it’s good to have a plan – but not to be so set on it, that it’s all I am thinking about as I put my kids down to sleep) because often times I don’t get to do that very thing that I wanted to do due to my children requiring more of my time.

I am a visionary person and love planning ahead which I still do however I am learning to be a more of a ‘go with the flow’ type of person as every day is different with kids. (There must be a healthy balance) I am learning to focus more on being present in the very moment I am in with them and not trying to hurry things up to get to the next moment. I don’t know how long I have with them so I need to make the most of every moment. Even the hard ones.

In the midst of the hard times I can still hear God saying to me …. ‘But Melissa you are blessed’. And he quietly reminds me of something that I can be thankful for!!!

Encouragement of the week

Let’s enjoy every moment with our children – life is to short to not enjoy this precious time!

Hope you can find something to be thankful for even if you are having a rough day/week.

Love Melly x
