I know all about that word.
Just yesterday, I was walking into the “Be Still Mama” Bible study (15 minutes late, mind you) and was completely torn because I really needed to be in 3 places at one time. Oh, how I wish it were possible to clone ourselves on days like those.
We cannot DO IT ALL, y’all.
And most days, I try.
There is no try.
I fall short in so many ways because I’m stretched beyond my means. I have to say yes to saying NO.
But I’m an overcommitted, overstuffed, overextended mama that loves life and being involved.
And there I sat, walking into a “Be Still Mama” Bible Study feeling depleted and exhausted. Good thing it was a Bible study, because that’s exactly what I needed at the moment.
Eventually, it will catch up with you. I’ve been there.
Did you see that quote above?
The greatest destroyers of marriages and families – overcommitment and time pressures.
It comes down to this: do I care enough about my marriage and family to say NO?
I have to say NO.
Are you an overcommitting fool too? Just. Say. No.
