I could try and analyze what brought this burnout on. It could be the crazy busy schedule during this last month. It could be my failure to get to the gym this week. It could be the fact that I haven't been taking my vitamins, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, etc. But if I'm being honest, I don't think it's any of those things this time. No, this time its more than just mom burnout, it's spiritual burnout. And it needs to be dealt with immediately.
Like many things, my taste in music has changed over the years. There came a day where children's songs were beneath me, then I discovered "praise choruses", but I only listened to those at church. By high school, my genre of choice was modern country. But after becoming a mom something in me changed that caused me to give up country music all together. That change: I began actually listening to what I was singing.
I am a podcast junkie. I love listening to my favorite bloggers share their heart while I perform my daily tasks because, let’s be honest, I don’t always have time to read blog posts and sometimes I just need to hear a grown-up talking. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite podcasts with you today.
I was never very close to Grandpa so the two weeks we spent with our extended family were very educational. I was reminded that he was an incredible man who lived a very full life. But at the funeral, as my Father-in-law read the eulogy, I came to this realization: Whether he realized it or not, Grandpa Paul built an amazing legacy that has already started making its way down the generations. My desire is to make sure that, at the very least, part of this legacy will continue to make it down to my children.
