The reminder came with the field day details. It also brought the reminder that the school year is winding down here. It seemed like the right day to pull out and edit an older post for all my mom friends.
Dear Weary Mom –
I know you can do it. The end is in sight. You have come this far so don’t give up! You can:
- make one more lunch
- help with one more homework assignment
- wash those school uniforms (or clothes)
- make snacks for the class
- chaperone one more field trip
- sit at one more school event
- help your child study for that test – again
- help them do one more school project
Getting through a school year is just as much work for a mom as for a=their child. There are days it seems they will never get their homework done. I know you are looking forward to a reprieve from the school schedule and hectic days. The morning is coming in which you will all be able to stay in your jammies for as long as you all like. Soon you will be able to enjoy the beach, the zoo, the parks, the pools, and your children. Your days will be full of bubbles, sand, water, sun tan lotion, swings, and ice cream.
“The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:28-31, NLT)
Weary Mom, lean on our God for He has an endless supply of strength and energy to give to you. Trust Him to help you overcome the exhausting demands of those end of school responsibilities. Hold on tight. The days of summer will soon be yours to enjoy. And you truly deserve each wonderful day!
