Hebrews 11 of a Homemaker

I climbed on to bed with a heavy heart. Pulled the covers and slipped inside. On my left is my husband eyes heavy with sleep, slipping into sleep, on my right in the bassinet is the baby sucking her fingers and moaning in between. I had just finished giving my older dtr a cold compress. She was temping 105. This is going to be a long night. My heart was not heavy due to her sickness. It was heavy from its own sickness.
My heart condemned me that I wasted the day. All I did was wake up, feed the baby, make break f fast for the family, meet with their teacher, research and plan on their curriculum, truce between the boys, read books to my little one, yeah him a little too read, comfort my dtr who had fever, folded the baby’s laundry, lunch, wash dishes, pump, take all the kids upstairs, fed the baby again, massage my feveri s g dtr, doze off for 5 min, wake up to a screaming husband to v the boys who spilled beans on the floor, drive the boys to their beds, pick up the now crying baggy and stomp downsairs, thankfully the swing comfort s her, yell at v my dtr to stay in bed or the fever never leaves her. Works on an important e mail. Takes my mind off on the computer, research more. Make c tea and milk shake for the boys, everyone settles down, dtr sleeps off on the couch, makes dinner, bathes the baby, feeds the baby, serves dinner and go upstairs to feed the baby. Comes down, wash a sink full of d is he’s while husband empties dishes, wash bottles, pumps again. 11.20 climbs in to bed with a heavy heart- I wasted a day.
