This made me smile...

If you're a house wife definitely you feel like loosing your sanity most of the time.  Our everyday lives is tied up with never ending chores and responsibilities.  While a lot of husbands and some narrow minded people thinks that being a house wife is so easy, I wanted to prove them they're wrong.  These people say that we don't have to work and all we need to do is just stay in the house.  What makes you say that stay at home moms don't have to work?  You'll never know how tough it is to stay at the house.  Why not try doing my responsibilities at least for a day and then tell me how easy it is be a house wife. wives don't complain with the mountains of laundry nor cleaning the house every hour that seems to make no difference after cleaning at all.  We are also forced of thinking ways to earn money that will help sustain our financial needs as we know the what's the real score of our budget.  We are willing to sacrifice our wants just to have provided the needs of our husband and children.  We love what we do and can bear the greater challenge taking care of our children.  It hurts us hearing other people belittle us as "house wives" more hurting when our husbands comes home and hear complains rather than asking "how our day passed" and then offer some help. What we needed is support specially from our husband, family and friends.  We want to feel appreciated and loved.  We at times wanted to feel special, we wanted to hear encouraging words rather than complains of the things we should or shouldn't do.  We needed someone to take care of us too. 

I struggle everyday to keep myself calm and cool specially when burden of cares runs inside my mind.   But then I keep on thanking God that His promises are enough to sustain me.  My children can get me irritated, but they are the ones who also proves how great God is.  Seeing them everyday keeps me encouraged and still smiling even I am in the midst of chaos.  Just this afternoon I was browsing photos saved in my phone.  I remembered how our last year was.  Their photos sure made me smile.  I'll cherish them while they are young.  All I need is patience to get through everyday and a grateful heart to see the good things rather than the worst.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, 
they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:30-31

Whenever I pity myself, feeling tired, desperate, boxed up and alone the above verse is my weapon to overcome with what I feel.  I start to count His blessings and recall wonderful memories.  This will make me smile.
