Spiritual Growth

This month has been full of coughs and headaches for me, and my family. In contrast I haven’t felt more grateful for my life, especially for my wonderful husband and sweet children. I don’t know if it’s all just the pregnancy hormones, but I have been very emotional lately. As a mother of 4 kids soon to be 5 kids this fall, my life is full of fun, noise, and messes, but at the end of the day when I have some quiet time with my husband I feel good about what I have done for my family even though I am so exhausted!

A week ago I was feeling emotionally tired from the many recent trials we have gone through as a family, our daughter having health problems, the economy and it’s toll on our family life, and a few other things like the garage needing repair, and the whole time I have had some funky cold and headaches.

All of these things just seemed to multiply as the weeks went by. Amidst all the stress I felt like I just needed to truly and earnestly pray and ask for help from Heavenly Father. Afterwards I sat and thought about how I can be so stubborn at times thinking I can do everything, and I don’t need to reach out to him and that I have asked for too much already. I have a beautiful framed picture of Jesus Christ, which was a gift from my husband from our first year together. It’s my favorite and next to it is a wonderful calligraphy written message that reads:

“The way will be difficult at times, but I will always be there.”

This simple message touched my heart again, as it did when my husband gave it to me. After reading it, I realized that I have become too busy for Him. He has always been there waiting patiently.

Our lives get so busy as mothers, we are always busy taking care of our children, husbands and home. If our kids ever needed us we would want them to rely on us no matter what the problem was. It’s such an incredible blessing to know and remember we are HIS children and that he wants us to rely on Him too.
