gratituesday : raging hormones

this would be a "praising God through the storm" kind of gratituesday post.  i had forgotten what it's like to have a hormone-coaster ride.  when i was pregnant i felt like i couldn't contain my emotions... but post pregnancy. . . holy samoley! 
an example:  here's my laid back personality going for a stress attack...  just because the baby's crying and i'm trying to load the kids up in the car...  and no one has their shoes and socks on...  and we might be a little late...  and that baby's SAD!  (that's the trigger.)
i AM thankful that my body works properly and that after i have a baby everything races around trying to find normalcy.  God designed me just the way He wanted and it was right.  and it was good.  it IS good.  God is good.
i'm grateful to have grace given to me (from my husband.  and my kids.)  i am asking forgiveness a lot these days. 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

you mean, feeling crazy like that isn't a normal/everyday of life type of thing? :D You are an awesome woman! And, I'm pretty sure you can do anything.

It's really strange how much a change in hormones can affect you. I had the same sort of craziness/anger/sadness after the birth of all three of my kids (maybe Annie the least). But I'm thankful that it ran its course and went away. Here's to you, Super Mom!
