Yes, I know it is not Monday, but it sure feels like a Monday!
We're back to the grind of homeschooling, house work, laundry, cooking, playing... time outs, short naps to reconnect with your inner peace, deep breaths, "no matter what" with Tootle's help.
Do you ever think about what it would be like not to have an immortal soul? We have been working with the kids about the concept of the immortal soul (I know 3, 4, and 5 is pretty young... but better to start young), and how animals don't have immortal souls only people have immortal souls. Trying to explain to them that animals (anything non-human) aren't mean they simply are what they are. And they act in a way that is simply their nature and by living out their nature that is how they glorify God... but they can't be mean (unless you are speaking on say a dog who's owner was irresponsible, we are speaking more of spiders aren't mean, they are just spidery). So back to my question, when things are tough in life and we, as Christians/Catholics/Parents, are called upon to do the right thing especially when it is difficult sometimes it just sucks. Blah blah blah... so the short of the long of it... sometimes it would be nice to just be a dog, and your only job is to be a dog and that is how you honor GOD. Yes, I'm aware that this is a copout feeling, but some days are just HARD! And at the same time, I know that the rewards of an immortal soul far out way getting thru a hard day... I'm just rambling in a mommy kind of moment.
Did I mention that I haven't gotten a lot of sleep this weekend... and neither have the children, yikes a dangerous combination!
