i went to bed at 9pm on monday. i woke up at 12am and remained awake the entire morning, caring for sick boys. i had to alternate between boys since dad was at work. His graces showered me.
dad arrived home at 7am and immediately helped with the kids. he cared for baby g throughout the day while i laid in bed to monitor papi.
dad giving papi a breathing treatment while he napped.
dad let me nap at 1pm while baby g napped. i was able to sleep for 2.5 hrs straight. then it was off to a birthday dinner for my niece. it was bed time when we came home. dad left for bball with father, after the kids were put to bed. i was tempted to throw in the towel and not complete a wo. it wasn’t until i began this post (at 9:27pm) that i realized, i was falling into my old ways, “all or nothing.”
i decided to stop typing and complete a simple wo (at 9:31pm).
Tabata intervals (8 rounds of 20 secs work/10 secs rest) of the following:
the wo was short and sweet. it lasted about 10 min. it wasn’t much but it was a step in the right direction. i pray to do what i can, when i can–not to throw in the towel because it does not meet my standards.
i thank God for the grace to get me out of bed and out of my stupor.
the boys seem to be improving. either way, i’ll put my plans in His hands.
“As I feel a great attraction toward prayer I asked God, by Our Lady’s intercession, to give me the grace to go on increasing in love of this holy exercise until my death.” ~St. Claude de la Colombiere
