Tell me not to be so hard on myself

okay so I need someone to tell me to quit worrying so much and being so hard on myself. I think I need to be everything to everyone all the time . I guess that is how you put it. i am always thinking am I spending enough time with my kids, am I being too hard on them, when they grow up what will they say about growing up,etc... Why do I fret so much about this. Awhile ago everyone was in the woods working with dh on the deer stand except me and the two youngest ones. The baby got to fussing so I put our 1 yr old in the pack and play for him to play while I tended to the baby. Well then I got to feeling bad because he was in the pack and play. Even when he is happily playing in there , I think wow I have him locked up in jail just to help me. why do I stress myself out like that???? I have 7 kids and I do spend most days time with each and every one of them more than I can say sometimes about some people with 1 or 2 kids but I just sometimes worry do they get enough of me. Anyway, I know this sounds like alot of rambling but I just had to get this out or I would bust. Thanks for listening to me . God bless

It is a perfectly natural thing to worry about those kinds of things, also you just had a baby, and it takes about 9 months for your hormones to regulate. You do have a lot on your plate, so it is natural to feel overwhelmed at times. Remember that God did not give you more than he thinks you are able to handle, and he has given you everything you need for life in godliness.

I worry about things like that too but somehow those kids thrive in a loving environment even if they don't get one on one attention every single day:).
