I have never been able to say no. I hate to let people down. I also hate to see things go undone. I think offering to help people when they have a need is noble… but I think there is a limit to what a person can do. A limit to how often a person says yes. Unfortunately, I have not seen that limit, that boundary. Sigh. I think someone may need to show it to me quick before I implode.
There are days when I am able to juggle it all and keep my sanity. On those days, I am Super Mom.
The rest of the time, I am “Crazed, Scary Mom”.
With grades due this afternoon, unit tests to grade, Parent Night tonight, Teacher Workday on Thursday, two birthdays on Saturday, Easter service where I sing and lead the kids on Sunday… which one do you think I am right now?
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:30-31 (NIV)
