February is one of my favorite months! There’s the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, my dad’s birthday, mine as well and a bunch of my dear friends have February birthdays too! It is always such a festive and busy time. 2016 was no exception!
If anything it’s safe to say that this is the busiest February I’ve had in the last decade. It began with a Super bowl party for 20 people (14 adults and 6 kids in our 1100 square foot home) followed by a wedding reception that I served at, a monthly Bunco girl’s night, a Galentine party at my church, and a surprise party for a dear friend of mine. Not to mention we haven’t even gotten to my birthday yet. Excitement is exhausting. I told my husband that all I wanted for my birthday was a nap and that’s saying a lot because I LOVE presents.
It’s time like these that I have to remember two things. One, count my blessings. This month was so busy filled with various celebrations that in times where I was stressed/cranky/exhausted I have to remember that the most important thing is enjoying all the people that I care about most in my life.
The second is that, God’s grace is sufficient for me and His strength is made perfect in my weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9). Even when I’m tired God in all of his goodness gives me what I need to complete each task before me and not to complete it but to do it well and with joy.
I’m looking forward to finishing this month out strong, enjoying my birthday and getting that nap :).
