I love my life.. I really do.
I am truly blessed in the fact that I can continue to be a Housewife/Work At Home kind of gal.
So please know that I don’t mean to be complaining at all as I write this post. How could I? I’m sitting outside in beautiful 80′ degree weather.. I have no room to complain.
But what I am saying is what the lady in the above picture states.
You see I’m a biological mom to two beautiful young adult women and an ‘adopted’ mom to a handful of just as equally beautiful young adults.. a mix of male and female.
I am also the Administrative Head and Co-Owner to my husbands business that just recently grew from just him, to him and an employee.
My youngest daughter recently was married and I during the planning and such, I had to figure out when to suggest things and when not to (which leans more on the NOT TO..)
As the middle man/woman in our new business venture, I am also the one everyone wants to vent their issues too, but doesn’t want to hear my thoughts on…
And you know what… it’s getting a little tiring.
Again, I’m not complaining. I can TOTALLY see how God is using all the circumstances in my life to grow me, stretch my faith, and push me in Trusting Him more… but sometimes it’s a little hard.
I am not one to be quiet.. well, I didn’t used to be… but lately I’m finding that it’s A LOT easier to just shut my mouth, smile, and nod.. I may want to scream… I may want to say ‘are you kidding me?’.. but I don’t.
No, even though I REALLY want to say things sometimes.. I’m learning it’s not about expressing my thoughts… or my opinions. It’s about me learning to be still.. to be quiet.
It’s not easy.. but after watching God work things out a few times WITHOUT me opening my mouth.. I can see that it makes sense.
I’ll still express my thoughts and opinions and my sarcasm is still alive and well, but in certain situations… I’m just going to shut my mouth and wait it out.
