It's A New Day...

...oh-oh-oh its a new time....

That is from an Avalon song that I enjoy. The tune is stuck in my head this morning. I can't help but to think how fitting it is. I'm up reaaallly early to see Nathan off. He has a unique day today and had to leave very early. I don't like him going to work without me being up to send him off, so here I am. I am tired, but I am not the miserable person that I was at this time after my 4th child was born. God has really done (and IS doing) a good work in me with this 5th delivery and postpartum time.

Last night Nathan got home from work and I felt a little panicked. The day had been a long one with my children, the house hadn't been completely straightened, & dinner wasn't close to finished. Some days are just like that. I am learning to not react to that panic and to just do my best to try and steady whatever had gone quirky in the schedule when days like this happen. The old me would have just thrown in the towel, claimed surrender to the chaos of life, and begged to order food in for the night. Instead, I asked Nathan to take the kids out to play while I got dinner finished. He did and it was a great joy to hear them laughing and playing together in the back yard while I cooked. Then, when I called everyone in for dinner, Nathan said to me,"I love days like this. Our home feels so...I don't know...home-y". Now is that music to a Mama/Wife's heart or what?


***FYI- I answered my tag this morning, but because I started the post a few days ago, it posted it a few posts down : )
