Having three at three has been kicking my tail for the last few days. I would not describe it as a major funk, just tired in the trenches. There is lots of energy, whining, jockeying for first place, waivering between independence and dependence and back again. All the normal little kid stuff--multiplied by three.
I want to live life with an eternal perspective...but there is a lot requiring my attention lately that is much more basic (and under three feet tall). Holiness is a worthy aspiration, but the messiness of everyday life can make it feel nearly impossible to achieve some days. That tug of war can be guilt inducing and a bit defeating.
I read this over at Beth Moore's blog today and it really resonated with me. If you haven't read it, go there now and be blessed!
