So often I am asked, “How do you do it?”
How do I manage the care, home, meals, bills, necessities – essentially, everyday life of having 4 children under the age of 4? I’ve responded with a laugh, a casual “Life is busy but so much fun”, “It’s wild but we stay afloat” or “The grace of God.”
While these responses are all true – the honest answer can be found a little deeper.
Yes our life is busy. Yes our life is late nights and early mornings. Yes our life is all over the map some days. It’s full of children shouting their needs over one another or fighting over toys. It is in these moments that the anchor keeps us still and calm (usually) – and He is the reason we rise above the storm and seek joy even in the difficult moments.
I could never accomplish all God has planned for me on my own strength. He is my rock. And that’s ‘how we do it’. My faith is my anchor.
