A little push

Instead of continuing to wish I was writing more, I decided to do something. I joined up with NaBloPoMo again. In other words, the goal is to post something on this here blog every day for a month. November is actually the official National Blog Post Month so maybe I'll join up again then as well. We'll see :) 

For today, I will just say, things have seemed busier than usual but I am enjoying this season with my kids. It doesn't leave a lot of time for cleaning and organizing much less writing. On Sunday, our pastor talked about community being hard on the schedule but not having it is hard on the soul. SO true. We make time for what is important to us. Lately, my schedule is more full... I making time for the important things- Taking 3 little monkeys to the library every week and then making time to read the books to them during the week. Sitting on the floor to roll around and play with those little cuties. Building lego ponds, boats, trucks, houses...etc. Singing. Dancing. Laughing. Park days and play dates.  On top of that stuff is caring for my husband & making time to encourage & be encouraged by other believers. Yeah, its busy. Yeah, they're needy. Of course some days I am incredibly drained.

sometimes quality time - playing on the floor at Wal-Mart w/ your 3yr old.

People often ask me or comment on "how I do it all". Truth is, some days, I don't. Some days I'm pleased that we all made it through fed & alive. Some days & I would even say, a lot of days, I walk in His peace a little better. Good day or bad day, His grace & love are my source of strength and endurance.

So, my hope is that by His grace, I will be able to share a little more of my heart & home with all of you over the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to making the time for writing and having a little push to keep at this thing.
