Life Style: When exhaustion hits

Sorry for my lack of posts these past couple of weeks. I truly enjoy blogging, sharing, and reading others blogs. My baby boy has been having a rough couple of weeks. First it was teething, then he got a cold, then when it wouldn't go away, another Ped in the practice prescribed him antibiotics. Bad idea. It messed his little tummy. Diarrhea, vomiting and a terrible diaper rash. Then I had to go away for a few days on a business trip. I come back and notice a slight noise from his cough and chest. I took him back to the doctor, and he tested (slightly) positive for RSV. Of course, mommy guilt hits at its fullest at this point. The trip emotionally exhausted me. Not only was the trip there a complete mess (8 hour delay!), but my heart was not in the training. It was enough for me to say, I can't do this. I told my hubby that I'm exhausted of balancing the extra stuff I have to do for work. I thought I had it all together balancing a challenging career and a family of 3 (under 5). And weeks like these, remind me that I'm trying to do it all alone. What is it about challenging times that remind us that Our Lord is waiting in the wings to help us? Why do we think we can do it alone?
It's been a constant go with a capital G these past few months. Life passing by, but not truly stopping to enjoy the moments. Life with 3 little ones is extremely busy. And I feel myself going through the motions. It could be the exhaustion from this past month, but I also don't want to get caught up in "the rut". I know the first thing I need to do is give time to The Lord, every day. It's easy to brush that time to the side, especially as busy as we can get as working moms. But that's the most important start to my day. Sometimes I wonder why God is so far away. He is not. It's me who pulls away at times, but the best part, is that He's always there. With wide open arms to calm my exhausting heart and mind. 
I write all this to say that as much as I love this blog, I might have to step away at times. I contemplated closing it but I have poured so much love and time into it, that I decided against that. I'm still planning on writing about life, style, family and most importantly, my Faith. 

Thank you for stopping by!
