Know that you cannot do all at once. Know that you have your limitation. Know that hard work alone will not bring success. Work wisely. Take a slow but sure steps towards your goal. Do what you are able to do today, do just that.
We, working moms works hard because we want to help our families. We are motivated by giving all our efforts for the sake of our loved ones. But we forget… we forget that we only have one body and that body is not a machine.
It pays to accept that we have limits. Let us not wait for the time when our body fails to do the things that we want to do because of sickness or fatigue.
This whole week, I wish that you take rest. The kind of rest that’s free of worries and stress. The kind of rest that gives you a peaceful sleep making your body ready for the next challenges in life.
works you do today
will be the same tomorrow
with of without rest
“In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” – Psalm 118:5-6
Along life’s way you will encounter people who will make life hard on you. These are the people who will hinder your plans, who will oppose you in all you do or say, who will put you in shame, who will bully you and hurt you.
Why is it that we always take for granted our partners just because we thought they are there forever? On my part, it is because I am too busy securing our financial stability that I come short on my obligations. It is because I cannot, no matter how I try, to spread myself too thin or cut myself into several pieces just to be with everyone at one time.
But is this reason enough?
Friends, today enjoy this poem that I made as part of my devotional poem for marriage couples. I hope the message reach your inmost thoughts and work within you.
“Let all that you do be done with love.” – 1 Corinthians 16:14
love must be taken cared of
or soon it will die
don’t dare take it for granted
or like opportunity–it will fly
I was once again becomes fascinated with Haiku poem so I decided to write one post today to describe my life as a working mom.
Pardon me if these are not the realistic haiku you almost always read online. These are just a description of how I feel… poems that evokes emotion. These are the kind of poems that usually touches me.
I can tell, making these poems are actually therapeutic.
How do you feel working and coming home so late then finding out your children are still waiting there in the house for you?
At home from late work
Four sets of eyes waiting there
In front of the gate
And how is our love life? How about the husband we most neglect?
The dark colored cat
Slowly cuddles on her lap
Longs for her caress
Oh, how I wish I could sleep long hours, too. This is the first thing that suffers when you are working…
I have changed job from easier to a more complicated one. It all happens last week so I am not able to post here.
I need to catch-up with a lot of new perplexing process. Because the change is so sudden, I got a cough.
Ahhh, working is really hard. For one, it leads me away to what I love doing – writing. Not only that, I am not able to catch-up with my reading, too.
But I decided never to push my passion at the back side. I should find time thus, this poem…
Think of your passion in life (a poem)
Every job I do today
Is but a stepping stone
I would like to think
It’s not the final destination
It’s just a vehicle
To bring me to what I want
It’s there to finance my passion
Reading, writing, travelling, fun
