Struggles of an everyday life

It has been a few EXTREMELY hectic weeks at work and at home... I have so much to do, I started my day with a desperate prayer in the train on the way to work...

Now winding down for the day and looking back, I am glad that I have survived and did my best. This is a prayer of thanks to God for hearing my short desperate prayer in the train this morning.

I thank God for the balls I managed to juggle... the people I managed to serve... the food we managed to put on the table... the apple biscuits that I managed to make for J late into the night...

I thank God for granting me the serenity to accept the balls that I dropped... the people that I could not please... the mess that I have created... the mistakes and mis-steps that I have treaded... the emails that I didn't manage to reply... the homecook food that I failed to make... the travel trip that I didn't manage to book... the faraway loved ones that I failed to keep in touch... the home accounting that I didn't manage to balance...

Above all, I thank God for keeping Daddy, J and me sane. That in itself is an achievement, I must remember :-)

Tomorrow is another new day to try again, and another chance to do my best, regardless of what others say, and no matter how lousy my heart makes me feel... by God's help I put to rest.

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength." - Isaiah 40:29
