I had a one of those days yesterday.
A day when the list felt too long. The different roles I had to play too challenging. I threw in the towel.
“D, I am not doing these dishes. I am done with dishes. I am done today. I can’t do it all anymore. I can’t be a teacher, a mom, a home-maker, a wife, a chef. I can’t do it all!”
I coddled myself with iPad games and asked to have a night off from night time routine with Peapod.
“I’m sorry I kinda threw in the towel today.”
“It’s okay. You be with Peapod, I will vacuum now and I will get up to do the dishes tomorrow morning.”
What I heard, “I love you. I am here to help. You are doing great.”
And then because Jesus knows me so well, he sends this little nugget of a devotional to my email today, “It’s okay to be okay” from (in)courage.
So, I’m okay today and that is okay.
