I’m so encouraged by reading everyone’s comments. Thank you! And also, I love reading what other people eat for breakfast. It makes me feel more normal.

So, you know how I said I wasn’t going to get stressed? How I’d be the picture of calm? Well, I just returned from my co-op meeting and my head is spinning with emails to send, forms to collect, Spanish books to order, and backpacks to organize. But I’m not allowed to be stressed, so I had to sing to myself on the way home, “Que Sera Sera, whatever will be will be, the future’s not ours to see, Que Sera Sera.”

Which didn’t help all that much.

So now I’m repeating to myself my “His yoke is easy and His burden is light.” This actually does help because it reminds me that this is all Little Stuff. It’s really not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. I don’t remember Jesus saying my kids have to learn Spanish.

I’ll do my best and send some emails and order some things off Amazon, and organize the best I can, but I’ll also do my best to remember the important things. Like Jesus, and holding my children’s sweet faces in my hands, and celebrating my baby turning three this week. (Oh, now I’m making myself cry.)

Because though the future’s not ours to see, God sees it and knows it is good and has a plan so much bigger than my lists.

And that does give me rest for my soul.
