Slow down Mothers...life is rushing by fast
This video made me cry! Ann Voscamp just came out with a new book and this video was made from pictures that Ann took herself, and she is the one speaking.
I have been so keenly aware of how fast life is rushing by. My "baby" is seven, next year I will have been married 10 years. Sadly, my life feels like I'm in chaos, disorder, and I spend my days scrambling to catch up on housework and schoolwork, and the special moments with my children get pushed back for another day. Watching this has made me even more determined to order my life, de-clutter my house, purge closets so laundry days are not as intense, and simply live life with my children and husband. Truly build relationships with my children that are lasting and deep. Pour myself into them, give them all that I have, not just tidbits left over.
May God give us grace as Mother's to be all that we can be. Please take the time to watch this video, it is so powerful!
