You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

Lately I really haven’t felt like a very good mother at all. Maybe it’s my appalling time management, maybe every mother feels like this, but it’s hard to keep the plates all spinning. I feel like I haven’t had enough time for anything and it’s meant I’m impatient and cross. The hours spent editing photos at my computer clearly addle my brain because I end up snapping at the kiddos and I feel guilty that I just haven’t been enjoying them recently. Sunshine wasn’t very well last week and my initial reaction was exasperation at everything I needed to do and my messed up plans. She just wanted me and it was a bit of a sobering moment. Yesterday I took her to see a friend’s pony, all our little girls are pony mad which is a source of entertainment to my friends that I am terrified of horses and she just can’t get enough of them, and I just enjoyed being with her and didn’t care about anything else for a while. I think I need to do more of that. And maybe actually start using the fancy planners I got?
