Expectations and Perceptions

Expectations~
So far my expectation of motherhood is not what I had dreamed~
I don't have a two story house with a wrap around porch,or a white picket fence.
I haven't yet figured out how to keep the kids clean and healthy without skimping on something else. My dreams of sewing wonderful play clothes,spectacular dress-up clothes has yet to come to fruition. I try and try to feed everyone healthy and nutritious food, but most times I am rewarded with complaints, this is too spicy, I don't like this, yuck!
I want so much to have God's grace to know that I am doing only, just what I should~
I pray and pray and pledge to do more~
But the challenge is only this
to Let Go and Let God, but often times I question?
-- are my dreams expectations or only the perceptions of my hope full heart?

Ah, me too *sigh* :P

I don't think there's anything wrong with hoping though... It's what keeps our little feet trudging in the right direction! : D
