When Mama Needs Abundant Grace

I was gone from home for 5 days. I have been home for 5 days. The problem is that the 5 days I was gone were filled with so much that sleep was the last thing on my mind. Since being home it is all that is on my mind. I am honestly still not sleeping because my mind will not turn off. So I have begged for grace from God, from my hubby, and from my kids. I am so glad that my oldest can get himself up, ready, and on the bus by himself- if not he would not have been at school this week. I have not gotten anything done as far as housework and only the bare minimum as far as laundry goes. Grace has been abundant here this week. Grace for the "craziness" I picked up while at Allume, grace in changing my dreams and throwing everyone for a loop, grace for the lack of housework being done, grace for the lack of "mommy duties" being completed, and grace from God for the lack of patience I have had with people who are questioning my new dreams and decisions. And grace from God for taking my time and questioning when he said "go" and I said "no" or "why". Grace freely given but not really deserved. Grace that I am thankful for.

Linking up today with Lisa Jo Baker and the Five Minute Friday Crew.
