So... Tonight I went to a relief society meeting. It was quite enjoyable. Though, I did leave a little stressed out.. How am I ever going to be the mom my children need. There are sooooooo many skills that I want my kids to learn, and I know the best way of teaching is by example. So if I want my kids to have certain skills, I need the skills.
After a second or ten of stressing about the lack of my skills... I figured I needed to make a list and try to fit things into my daily life better... Examples:
1. I want my girls to be able to cook. It's very hard for me to cook from scratch meals every day... but if I try to do it twice a week, or even once.. I'll be able to start there, and maybe get better at it.
2. I want my girls to learn to sew. I've thought about it.. and maybe I can take 1/2 hour a sunday at my parents house and sew with my mom.
These two are just small examples of talents that I hope to help them develop. There are so many more on so many different levels of importances..
I'm just going to start somewhere that is due able. I may never be able to save a million dollars when shopping or anything. But at least I will be trying to better myself and help my girls be better prepared for womanhood and motherhood.
I'm grateful Heavenly Father has given me the peace instead of stress in this situation.
