from a mother of 19 kids...

When we realized early in our marriage that we needed to give those expectations to God - we needed to yield our right to a clean house, to a full night's sleep, to whatever it is that we think we deserve or we should have - and say, "Lord, I'm not going to have these higher expectations that may not ever actually get reached. I'm going to give this to you, and if you allow anything to happen, that's good. I'm going to praise you, and I'm going to be grateful and yield my expectations to you."
