Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

OK so I'm having a problem with productivity lately. I'm being drawn to my computer instead of the chores I have staring me in the face here. I have gotten better since my morning sickness has lightened up a bit, but I'm feeling completely unmotivated. I do Flylady, but haven't gotten myself back on track since I started working part-time.

Is there any advice out there?? I mean, it's the lazy days of summer and all, but I feel like I'm taking it a little too literally!

When I can't get my "get-up-and-go" up to par I try to get to daily Mass. I am always AMAZED and completely in awe of the Moms who get there everyday (or at least everyday I get there)!
If you are already going to daily Mass . . . . then I am out of suggestions. LOL!
Ride out the wave of lethargy???

btw - so happy to find your blog!

I'm glad you found the blog too! Thank you for the suggestion. I was just telling my kids that one of the moms from their school goes to daily Mass... and brings the kids! That would be a really good idea, at least some days of the week if not all of them.

Feeling a little bit better now though. I'm pregnant right now with baby #4 and just don't have the energy I used to have. But the first trimester is almost done so I'm starting to feel a little better.
