There are days of school in our home that are pure struggle.
I pray to make it through the day intact.
There are days when it all seems so hopeless and I end up discouraged to the bone.
Then there are other days when I see sparks of hope.
These are the days when my children start to “get it”…whatever it may be.
These contain moments of watching them develop a love of learning.
Moments like this one when my five year old all boy wants to write…wants to practice letters. He concentrates so hard on doing well with his little pink tongue sticking out to the side of his mouth.
Those are the days that encourage me to see beyond the others.
Because of these days I look right past and beyond the days laden with struggle.
Yes, I look straight beyond them and see better tomorrows.
I can see that the struggle won’t always be there.
There is hope for this mama just trying to do her best and praying that it is enough.
I can be encouraged and look beyond as I pause to cherish moments like this.
Be encouraged with me, remember your moments of hope and look beyond your struggle to a better tomorrow.
