Ya’ll… only 10 more days of having to get small people up and out the door by 7:15. Who am I kidding…. 7:25, but the point is SUMMER IS HERE!! This is celebration time because ya’ll know I struggle with punctuality and a break from the shame brought on by the tardy bell is welcomed with open arms!
This also means more hours in the day for me to hear I’m hungry. I’m bored. She hit me!
I am normally a pretty patient person, but I’m also a screamer if I don’t make a plan to specifically NOT be a screamer!

If you are like me, you might not quite be at the singing praises stage. Here are some promises to yell instead!

Praying for y’all!
Thank you for the gift of motherhood. Thank you for Jesus. Father God bless this summer break with lots of love and laughter. Help us to remember how powerful our words are and remind us of the truths you want us to speak over our children. Thank you for seasons and I pray a special blessing over every mama. Jesus help us to know how much you love us and teach us to swim in grace when we screw up. Help us to live open handed lives with our children. We love you, Jesus. You are everything.
In Jesus name I pray,
