Imagine (a five minute friday)

My Five Minute Friday on: Imagine

What would it be like if my daughter could find her shoes in the morning?

And the clothes that she just has to wear today weren't sitting at the bottom of the hamper?

Or what about the kid's lunch bags? What if they were emptied the night before instead of in the morning when I'm trying to fill them again?

What if my son's binder that I just bought all new in April, because the one from the fall had ripped apart, didn't look like our Dodge Ram ran over it?

I'm trying to imagine homework being done, musical instruments practiced, chores completed without a chorus of sighs and ho-hums.

Because that would be peaceful.

But then again, that wouldn't be life. Every sticky, desperately challenging second of it.

So even though I'm done — as done as Jen Hatmaker in this hilarious post for moms.

And I frequently wonder what in the world am I doing and will my kids turn out okay with me as their Momma (if you wonder this too, check out this post by Lysa TerKeurst)?

I can be certain that this husband and these children and the path and the story is being written uniquely for me. And although it's nice to imagine things differently sometimes, I try to remember —

It even rains in paradise.

Linking today with Lisa-Jo…

This post is perfect. No, that reality of perfection is not our lives as moms. And Jen's post was hilarious! Have a lovely weekend!
