It is well with my soul

This week has been tough. Monday just might have been my toughest day of parenting yet. Between Connor trying to find his independence and Isla having tantrums when she doesn't get her way, not to mention her being sick so not sleeping well (aka: me in turn getting NO sleep). All this had lead to me having quite.the.week. Not to mention that I dealt with the worst of the worst of meltdowns from Connor in public on Monday. Awesome.  

Then today it rained. Isla went down for a nap. Connor and I put on our rain gear and went out back to enjoy ourselves. He played and I just sat. I listened to the rain hit the patio. I watched the rain hit the ground. I enjoyed the smell in the air. It was just the break this mama needed. Refreshment for my soul. 

I'm looking forward to more rainy days ahead...though I think I'll have to wait a while until I get another one. Of course, if it rained every day I probably wouldn't like it quite as much! 


  1. Oh Jessica, I'm sorry. Last week was a rough week for me too, as well as today. I'm having a hard time keeping God's promises in mind... my soul needs to be refreshed as well. I'm glad the rain provided a break for you. Remember, you're only human, and need forgiveness as much as your kids do.

  2. The rain is only starting here...I'm NOT looking forward to 9 months of gloom. :( glad things are looking up.

  3. Oh man, I'm really sorry to hear things have been so rough. The rain helped my soul too. I'll keep your family in my prayers.
