I really think there should be a Confession time for homeschooling mothers on Mondays.
(especially after a long holiday weekend)
Lord, please help me to be patient, loving and kind.
Help me to realize it's just a day.
Tomorrow we will do better.
Tomorrow, I will do better.
Help me to realize that kids are noisy, especially 5 kids.
Help me to be OK with that noise level, especially on Mondays.
Help me to understand that not only can the children not focus or concentrate on Mondays, but I can't either.
And that's OK.
If the only thought I process completely today is "Lord, help me!"
Lord, help me!
