There are times as a mother where it seems like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that needs to get done!
These types of days are stressful! It is hard to feel behind the 8 ball, but as Catholic parents we must remember that Christ is there to help us if we only have faith. The reality is, it is better to plug along with a smile on your face and peace in your heart than to accomplish a million things! Finding a steady pace that reflects realistic goals is a key to being a happy mother!
When you don’t have time, it is important to fill your heart with the Lord and ask him to help you work out the details of what you need to do. When you are struggling with feeling overwhelmed do not do it alone. This is especially true when your good works are for the betterment of your family and the Kingdom of God. Jesus tells us in Matthew 17:20, “truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain “move from here to there and it will move and nothing will be impossible to you.”
So the next time you feel overwhelmed and behind the 8 ball in life, remember to have faith so that you can move the mountains in your own life!
