Hello faithful readers and praying friends! An enormous thank you for your prayers and sweet encouragement this week. I’m elated to share with you that the fog is lifting over Casa de Murray!!!!
It is music to hear the boys giggling, chatting, and arguing (okay, that’s a stretch) with one another again. I missed my little guys’ true form.
Many of you have asked the question "How do I do it?" especially when faced with four feverish, cranky, demanding, whiny, snot-filled, tuckered, out of sorts, munchkins when I’m miserably outnumbered. Frankly, these are my weakest hours. I fail, and I fail miserably. But in the rare moment that I’m not falling flat on my face, you can find me laughing at the chaos, reciting Scripture in my head, breathing deeply, praying out loud, singing, kissing the tears, rocking with a lap full, texting/emailing my quad mamas for support, calling Brad for back-up, and JUST SURVIVING.
I must remind myself that the present is only a "vapor" of a moment. This too WILL pass! The Fog Will Lift! And so it has…
There’s another great blog post that’s a must read on this infamous "How Do You Do It?" question. Hop on over to Mckmama’s blog to read more from a mama who’s flying by the seat of her pants along with me. She’s got four munchkins also, she just did it the less efficient separate back to back pregnancies way. Her post just hits the spot in priorities and practicality.
Feel free to add your practical additions and coping tips….I have MUCH to learn!
