I am a busy lady sometimes. I like being busy, and I'm not complaining about that.
Right now I'm a "stay at home" mom with a toddler and a preschooler - baby #3 will be here in a few more months. 3 days a week, I babysit for a sweet toddler boy. I also work part time with the children's ministry at my church. So basically - I stay at home and work 2 part time jobs.
Some days I run myself ragged. I forget to give myself time to rest. I don't relax my mind. I frequently don't let myself refresh, even when I take advantage of "nap time" with my boys.
So what is this busy mama going to do in order to daily refresh herself?
1) Spend time reading my Bible daily - while I put the boys down for a nap.
2) Work on at least 1 craft project a week.
3) Create a prayer to say regularly that helps me remember who I am and who I want to be.
4) Remind myself that my health is important as I teach my children.
