Remember my post two weeks ago about this class with Seeker’s Guidance I’m so excited about? I remember it too, and with a little shame in my ability to juggle it all.
In my defense, my husband has has to work late the last two weeks on the class day, pushing dinner right into the class time. I also didn’t realize that class is a full two hours, pushing it right into bed time. Oh, the life of a mom. Now I have a full four weeks to catch up on, adding up to a full eight hours of lecture, plus reading and looking through the slides. InshaAllah I will get caught up and make use of my registration.
So, when is it mama’s turn for education? Education doesn’t stop when you get a job, or finish school, or whatever other magical time makes us feel like we know enough to get by. Especially when it comes to our deen (religion), we need to keep moving forward and making strides to improve our knowledge and actions.
It was a pretty hard transition having a new baby two years ago and finding out that taking at least two classes, plus recreational reading went out the window. It has been a wake up call that there really are seasons in life and we need to embrace each one, no matter how much we miss the previous season.
So, I will continue trying to catch up in this class and inshaAllah get as much benefit out of it as I can. At the same time, I’m not going to beat myself up for not being at the head of the class. Anything I gain is for my benefit in this life and the Hereafter, and the benefit of my family when I can share this information with them.
So, when is it my turn? When the time is right, alhamdulilah (praise be to God).
What have your life seasons brought you? Have you embraced each change?
