Hey Mama,
Only (two) days until the new year . . . can you believe it? But what about the current year? Was today hard, difficult? We just have "those days" sometimes. Maybe this year was filled with them. Too many. Too hard. You belong to the Mama Club, and it's not easy. Struggles abound. Stress is a beast. And then things start to look up, only to crash a few days later. It’s a bit of a cycle, isn’t it?
You just want the joy to stay longer . . .
Life as a Christian—lots of trials and tests. Pain alongside the joy. Sometimes, no joy. This life has plenty of trouble. And when “those days” hit, it’s so overwhelming you just feel all done. Stick a fork in me and call it a month. SO done. You start to wonder if you’ll ever get past it . . . has anything you've done this year actually made any kind of difference? 
Take heart, Mama, you made a difference, more than you know. Know why? Because God’s got your back. He always has. If you don’t believe me (or just really need a good reminder) read these articles from The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine:
And remember, Mama . . .
You have a 100% success rate in getting past the hard days. Things do get better. And in the midst of it all, your character continues to build because your perseverance and endurance despite the pain and weariness produce godliness—drawing you ever closer to Christ. He will never leave us. He sees, He knows, and there truly is a plan. None of this is random. But you have learned that, faithful Mama, haven’t you?
You know . . .
Guess what else? When your daughter or daughter-in-law someday has one of “those days,” or a seemingly-never-ending slew of them—you will know exactly how to minister to her. When in her heart it feels “over,” you can put your arms around her and show her that she actually has a 100% success rate in getting past the bad and into the joy again. Just like you have, Mama.
God takes care of it all. He did it for you when you were a young mom, and He will do it for her now when she is dealing with a household, family, and all the trials of life that will come her way.
She has you.
Don’t forget that. That day is coming; so prepare. Look up. His hand is on your head tonight. And your future is GOOD. The Author of Goodness says so.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 
See? The Author says so. Put a fork in that! :-)


Enjoying the journey,
