mommy..i’m unhappy — i sensed there was more so i laid on the bed with her and out it came.
to protect her heart i will not share here but the words she said to me rang true
and this is what they were
we need to re-boot our FAMILY
reboot mean to restart-put in a new operating system and turning it on
so we talked and decided that our first course of action to our new operating system is to do a major de-clutter!
the kind when you bring in a dumpster
we are cleaning out the entire house peeps..no small feat!
throwing away – giving away – or storing in our shed
because here is the keeping it real part
i am up to my eyeballs in work which takes over my living room due to lack of space downstairs
I work seven days a week
have very little time to really cook..or clean
I have all the bills, doctor visits, phone calls, errands and you know all the stuff us mom’s do
and I am full of stress and that is not good for my health
Does God use our children to speak to us? I do believe so
and that is what it took for me to “hear” We need some major re-booting in this family.
since i am the mom it is my responsibility to do something about it.
The first step to rebooting one’s family
1. find the main thing that is causing a bump in the road and start there
the dumpster is coming Friday and the kids and I have all agreed to work all weekend cleaning the basement out
there WILL be pictures… and LOTS more on this subject as we begin the re-booting process:)
