Delight OVER duty.
The most humbling lesson and truth I'm currently learning from Famous In Heaven & At Home. It was a hard night. One night this week I got food poisoning so I was up from 11pm-1am and then Luca woke up at 1...enter growth spurt and fussiness which meant soothing him to sleep took till 3am when I gave up and put him in the swing (he's been a good crib sleeper). Nevertheless, those 4 hours in the middle of the night I had a choice. I could choose the mindset of duty: nursing as duty, being a mom as duty OR I could delight in those responsibilities and activities. It was my choice, I decided to spend time in prayer while nursing and use it as an opportunity to dine with God. It wasn't easy because I was tired but I did notice my attitude of duty, frustration, and complaining wash away as I held my son and chatted with my creator. Will you allow delight or duty to drive your responsibilities today?
