Sometimes life is overwhelming, trying to balance all of our roles, obligations, passions, and relationships. It often feels impossible to do it all well. May has been a particularly full month for us, and on this Sunday, Matt and I were both feeling exhausted. When we feel exhausted by life, we often get shorter with each other, more easily frustrated, and I quickly lose sight of the beauty and good that I am surrounded by. It is difficult for me to say no to things, especially things I really want to do, but fortunately on this day, my husband said no for me. We decided to miss church and instead have a family day, just focusing on each other, and it was amazing how refreshed we felt by the end of the day.
