Do it with valor! . Praying whatever you've got going on this week you'll do it with valor.
Our kids struggle with the unstructured. They spent years living an unstructured, unsafe life so now their anxiety ramps up when the weekend starts because this is the only time in their new lives we live unstructured. . . I think their traumatic brains are still hardwired to expect danger so they fall into old habits/survival techniques regardless of the safe environment around them. This means they have more outbursts, power struggles, fights with each other and with us. Weekends can difficult to say the least. . . If you're in this boat too, praying this weekend will be different. Praying for the Holy Spirit's intervention. God has the ability to create and renew. He creates families. He's created yours, ours. . And He promises to renew. I'm trusting He can renew our strength. He can renew the landscape of our hearts. He can renew what the day will look like. Praying He'll do the same for you too.

Motherhood at it's finest! I spent time today removing one sink and putting in one better suited to us-bigger, unfussy farmhouse style. ❤️ Thankfully, my mom helped. So did Buttercup....sort of. . She made us play I Spy the entire time. Plumbing while having to guess what animal a 5-year old is imagining... Bet you'd never see that on Fixer Upper! 😂😂
