Today is bad. It started out really good. I got up somewhat early and read my bible and prayed. I even prayed to forgive my husband because we had an argument. I prayed for my parenting, that I would be calm and not lose my temper. And I was, until this afternoon. My children both take 2 hr. naps at the same time but today was horrible! Claire would not go to sleep, she played instead which would be okay but, she plays loudly and she jumps on her bed and hits the wall and then she screams! Lily slept for all of about 10 minutes and then would not let me put her down for the next three hours!

I am exhausted and Satan is doing a really good job of defeating me. I think I will stop typing and just go cry.

Add in a hyper 4 yr old and a home business that you have to take care of because your husband has no time and You have my day most days. I know how you feel and I love you. Just keep praying and seeking God. Dont let Satan win. If you do then you have my world, cause I let him win on most days. It has got to get better right.....

Anyway, thank you for commenting on my blog, it really encourages me and helps me. Sometimes I think there is no one out there who listens or understands.

Love You Your Sis
