Plan your work, and work your plan

I am sorry. But please do not call me the day of and ask me if I could attend this emergency last minute meeting at 4:30pm. This is twice in a row! I work full-time to support my family; I am a mother, and a wife. I go to work at 8:30 in the morning, and sometimes I don't get home till 6PM. I hope you can understand why I kindly declined your invitation to a church meeting at 4:30pm today. Not everyone is a stay home mom.

A-FREAKING-MEN! I am not (YET) a working mom... but, I feel it's unfair to plan day time over even afternoon meetings. Who can attend them? Retired people? Even stay-at-home moms usually can't because they'd have to get a sitter to do be able to go because their other half isn't home yet. Ridiculous!

I am so relief to hear someone else feel the same way. I just feel so frustrated with these last minute church meeting sometimes. I want to honor my calling, and i want to do it well. I do however have a hard time do a good job when the meetings are so last minute. ugh... people, plan out your day, week, month, year!!
