This picture has nothing to do with the post, just Farrah after she got into my make-up!
At least the black eyeliner is somewhat around the eye,(a little on the arm) and the lip gloss in on the lips (kind-of.) I just don't understand why she thought the big glob of lip gloss in the middle of the forehead was necessary?
"Don't go there, girlfriend!" I have a friend who says that to me when I start heading down the self-pity pit. This week I thought I'd throw my self a little pity party. It's over now! I went shopping and got some new make-up and 3 new much needed bras! ha! The simple things in life that make this mom feel better:)
You see, once I get down in that pit, it's hard to claw my way back out. For me, all it takes is dwelling on something negative for a few minutes (like the 5lbs I've gained when I've been trying to lose) or not knowing where we will be living in less than 3 weeks) and the next thing I know, I am looking up from the center of the yucky pit.
It's like the devil knows what buttons to push in order to make me feel down.
Have you ever watched a college cheerleading squad? Their motions are perfect, in sync and very sharp. If one member is behind a half a count, everyone can tell.
Well, I feel like a cheerleader who is a half a step behind the entire routine. Sometimes it seems that a lot of the moms I know have it all together and I'm kicking with the wrong leg. The devil loves to point out my shortcomings and whisper things like, "Ok, Bridget who do you think you are?" "How can you even homeschool when you don't even have a house to homeschool in etc..."
This week I'm taking my friends advice and I'm not going there!!! I'm going to think positive! I believe that is why the Bible tells us to think on good and lovely things because God knows how we get. When I start to compare myself to other mom's or start to worry about the future, I'm going to stop and right then begin thanking God for giving me the wisdom and strength to be the best mom I can be. I'm going to thank God for the plans he already has in store for me. That way if I respond to the devil with praise for the Father, I'll send him packing!
