A week of waves

This week, my friends and I kicked off sharing our Wavemaker Mission. Our group grew from 15 to over 300 in less than two weeks, with members all over the world. We are completely awed and humbled by this, as well as driven to continue spreading messages of hope that are clearly needed.

October is typically difficult for me. This one isn’t different, but I’ve had our event to distract me and pour into – there is comfort in sharing your story, knowing you have encouraged someone else. Even so, as the week draws to a close, I am mentally and physically exhausted. Yet, I’ve also learned it is okay to be honest with myself and set firm boundaries that give me permission to take care of myself. Sometimes that means taking a nap. Other times it means hiding for a little while, either somewhere at home or by running an errand alone. These little breaks help me surf the waves. 

We fill our weeks with school, friends, and service. My goal as a mom is to teach my children to focus on Loving God by loving and serving people. One way we do this is “Wavemaker Wednesday” (which is a renaming of Ray Higdon’s Wealth Wednesday). My kids’ favorite way to make waves is dollars in diaper boxes or formula cans. This week, I made a note to go with it.
