I read this little piece over at Conversion Diaries and loved the perspective it gave me on how to view my time as a mother and the work that I don't get done. This is small excerpt from it:
"It occurred to me that Mother Teresa must have had more demands on her time than she could ever even come close to addressing — and considering the type of work she did, serving the poorest of the poor all over the world, she must have often felt daunted by how many important things needed to be done compared to how little she could do.
So I asked Fr. Langford: What did Mother Teresa do when it seemed that there was more work than she could possibly handle?
His response was simple and wise, and it marked a turning point in my life. In his reply to my email, he wrote:
The [work she could not get to] she did not think twice about, nor should you or I, since God is not asking you to do what He does not give you the time (or health, or resources) to do. So be at peace."

Although, we have seemed to be hip-hoppin' these last few weeks. We drove down to Kansas to watch my sister play in the State Basketball Tournament. We went to Omaha on annual big zoo trip. Dominic turns 12-years-old tomorrow. That makes me want even more to drink in our time together. Kapaun turned 6 months this week also. Rose makes her First Holy Communion next Saturday. I feel as though BIG milestones are happening left and right. What a joy it is to be on this ride with them!
On the eve of his 12th birthday, I couldn't be more grateful for the time I have spent getting to know this child, watching him grow, and listening and conversing with him. I am grateful I haven't missed his life.
