A friend dropped a meal off last night. She told me that someone asked her how I was doing. My friend responded: "She is overwhelmed and overjoyed."
That is an accurate description for how I'm feeling these days. Caring for two little ones is incredibly overwhelming. I am exhausted and everyday brings new challenges trying to figure out when and how to feed them both, play with them, comfort them and love them.
Ryan walked in the door on Tuesday and I was in tears (again!). He said, "Did I do something wrong or is this one of those times when you just need to cry?"
Being tired and overwhelmed is definitely cause for tears some days.
I apologized to Ryan on Tuesday because I felt that he would be stressed every time he walked in the door at night...a messy house, a tired wife and two kids that require a lot of time and energy. Ryan gently reminded me that this is suppose to be exhausting.
And this is exactly what we wanted.
Praise the Lord for exhausting and overwhelming days filled with absolute joy.
