It's been a long week of potty training. I might be a little deprived of adult interaction, but I'm hanging in there. Today my mom came over to visit, lend a hand and help encourage the potty training. About 20 minutes into the visit she upset me (it happens!) and I asked her to leave. Do you know what that women did? She grabbed a blanket and made herself even more comfortable on my couch... 
Tried to hide...
Down right refused to leave! I told Steve the story and he said next time I ask him to leave he's going to do the same! It's like they're starting their own little 'Occupy Rena's house'. After I came to the realization that she really wasn't going to leave (she wore me down), we packed the kids up and headed to Target(that's pretty much how most of our fights are resolved). I needed potty training supplies, a strong cup of coffee and to see the light of day!
In the end I'm glad she didn't leave, she was a big help and Henry's always happy when Mama is around. He even got some new toys out of it, thanks Mama!

Today's Reflection:
You know, this incident somehow reminds me of my relationship with God. Sometimes, I think I can handle things on my own and I start pushing God out the door. Not that I don't love God, I just think I can take it from here. Do you know what God does? He makes himself comfortable, he just does not leave. God stays by my side, even when I try to get a little space from him. He knows me, and he stays, he's in this relationship, even when I start to fade.

How great is that?

and of course, that makes me love him even more and helps me to realize how much better things are when he's around!

Thank you Lord, for not abandoning me!

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
-Deuteronomy 31:6

Have a Lucia kind of weekend (a Happy weekend!)
