I don't get to church often because 1, 2, 3...5 kids are sick. Or I'm sick. Or the babies didn't get a morning nap because the big kids woke them up after 15 minutes and so they need one in the afternoon and church is at 1:00. And Eli has a calling that requires his church attendance, so I'm the one who stays home. And therefore, I miss out on that spiritual uplift every week. I am drained in every conceivable way.
So HOW. IN. THE. WORLD. do I survive? Because most days I think to myself, "There is NO way I'm making it another 18 years." (Or beyond. We all know it doesn't stop when the kids leave the house.) How do I do it? I do it with help. Yes. Eli is wonderful. But he's not enough. (Sorry Hon!) I need someone else. I need my Heavenly Father.
I am GRATEFUL He is there.
