Five Minute Friday – Change


My everyday is one of staying home. I rock the baby. Feed the baby. And roll around in neverending piles of laundry and dishes. I wonder what to make for dinner.

It is an age-old battle fought by many a housewife, but nontheless a mini-battle of everyday. Epics could be written on the intricacies of that war.

But I digress.

My everyday is one of staying home. Thr play is with the baby. The books are read at naptime. We go for a run nearly everyday. It is an enjoyable life, one my husband works hard to provide for. He makes possible my dream of being a mommy.


Every now and then.

In fact probably more times than I care to admit.

My tired limbs wish I could just sit all day long. Yes. And read. Or sleep.

My laziness astounds me sometimes.

So I go to facebook to see if the world approves of my lack of motivation.

I have no doubt it will.

But then, with my status of semi-complaining halfway typed I realize I need to change.

My husband is off at work.

Just as tired as I am.

So I can stay home.

What a blessing. My thankfulness is not evident some days. But today I’m making a choice to change.

I’ll be happy and let my husband know (oh, I hope!) how happy he has made me by giving me this freedom.

So thank you, my hard-working man muscles loving me!

Today I choose joy.

And that is change enough for now.
