Have you ever wished you had more than two arms? There was so much that needed to be done that... if only you had another set of arms or hands, then...things would have been easier.
This got me thinking that having another set of arms could go in the complete opposite direction. Being a mom is a huge job and responsibility. Like a lot of moms out there, I am a working mom. When my head lifts off of my pillow every morning at 5:30am...I am in "go mode." I get myself ready for work, wake up the kids then head downstairs to help my husband get breakfast ready. Once we head out the door and I know my babies have their homework, lunches, and are dressed properly, my day begins.
I am the performing arts teacher at our school. We have multiple performances throughout the year which I am very proud of. Because we are a small school, we are invested in these kids and what we believe in, which means we have a lot to do. There have been multiple times I have wanted an extra pair of hands at work as well.
Once we get home from school, soccer, girl scouts, or any other event we have going on...you all know, it's homework, dinner, bath, and bed time. We are in go mode once again. Usually while I am heating either leftovers or cooking dinner, my husband helps with homework. We try to make it a point to sit down together every night and have a meal where we talk about our day. This is my absolute favorite part of my day.
With all of this said, yes, there are times that an extra pair of arms would be nice, however, with all that we juggle, maybe this has been a sign to slow down. God gave us one pair of arms and legs. He knew what He was doing. We are not made to have so many arms. We are not made to juggle so many multiple things at once, because when we do... we miss out on what we are suppose to do at that current moment. Imagine having 8 legs like this octopus! Think about how insane our lives would be!
I am so glad that I have one pair of arms and legs. I am an overachiever and would probably miss out on a lot if I had more.
My Repurpose for today : Be thankful that I have one arm for my daughter and one arm for my son...having more than two would not allow me to give them the hugs that they need or better yet...I need for myself.
I am an everyday mom who likes everyday things. I love taking everyday items and giving them a repurpose. Our number one seller is our candles!
