My niece’s favorite saying right now is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy and now my toddler caught onto it too…so I hear it a lot these days! But it pretty much sums up this recipe.
Steak night is a rare treat around this house but I wanted something extra special to complete a perfect Saturday at home together. Family TIME is my love language. This flame kissed steak was delicious and no, that is not my plate! Haha.
These two keep me begging God for grace, patience, wisdom, and energy! Mothering well is hard work. It’s not for the faint of heart but the rewards are beautiful.
I call Olivia my little shrimp because she is so petite and light…. I always thought nursing was supposed to be a very natural, easy, thing. My experience especially this time around has been anything but easy and relaxing. Its hard. It stresses me. I’ve felt like a failure.
And just this morning the weight of it all was bearing down hard upon me and Declan brought me a tissue and asked if I was crying? I sent a text to my mom for prayer and she encouraged me to ask God for an answer…whether there is something more I should be doing.
All that to say, I’d been praying. As I was washing dishes, with soap up to my elbows (thanks son!) I suddenly thought of calling an old friend. I think it was from God. Because I didn’t realize it but at this time, she is going through the exact thing. I don’t think she realized how much I needed to hear that I am not in this alone. I’m really not that terrible of a mom for not having the answers and yes, my baby really will get through this stage!
I just wanted to encourage any other mom out there that might be struggling with the same things…or feeling like you just don’t have the answers. God cares. Ask Him for some specific answers. He will give when we ask.
Have a happy Monday!
