One of Those Days

Most days I go about the business of taking care of my family pretty routinely. Although I am always thinking about my children in Uganda, I still function pretty normally. I manage to stay focused and be productive. Having a large family, I have plenty to keep my mind occupied and my hands busy.

Then I have days... where it's hard to function. Days when it's difficult to think about anything else but them. Days when my heart aches so desperatley for them to be home I am in a constant state of tears.

I know God's timing is perfect. I understand I haven't been waiting nearly as long as some of my dear friends. I trust my Father in heaven completely. I know that He is at work to accomplish His good purposes.

but Today... is one of those days.

I remember those day well...they will pass. In the mean time they only serve to bond you to your sweet children all the more. Praying for you.

Thank you, Melissa. It's always so encouraging to hear from you sweet mamas that have already been through this :)
