Life is Full of Lessons

I’m always trying to teach my children lessons anytime I can, however when life wants to teach me a lesson I throw a fit. That’s right, I admit it…I throw a fit. There are times in my life when I have it all together and then there are those times when I’m lost and confused and all I can do is pray. God definitely gets his share of requests and questions from me, and if you know me, you know I’m a talker. I have to wonder if he’s ever like…Ok lady, I get it! ha ha! I’m sure he’s not, but to think about it definitely makes me chuckle!

Lately I have been very busy, so busy that I haven’t had the time to do my passion…write. When I started this blog 5 years ago it was a fun outlet for me. It was a way to share all that I was doing and keep track of day to day life with my boys. Somewhere in that time people started to read my blog and it began to grow….and grow. It eventually turned into more than just a fun project, but it started to bring in fun products, trips and sometimes a little cash too! I have made great friends and connections that I hope to never lose and I have found much happiness in my writing career/fun.

This year however, I have gotten so busy that I haven’t had time for my blog. I apologize. I took a “job” I put that in quotes because it’s a job, but not like you would think. It’s more of a missionary type work. I do Finances, fundraising, grants, secretary work and anything else that is thrown at me at a small private school…the school my children attend. While I love what I do, I do miss my writing, my time home with the kids, time to clean and cook, and time to just think (you know, while the little one naps?)  and so I have decided that next year I am going to cut back my hours at the school. I’m hoping that in doing this I’ll be able to do both things that I love to do, while spending more time with my children and having fun too!

Have you been struggling with trying to find out your path you should be going down?

  1. Good for you for being able to step back and assess. Not everyone can do that! I have definitely been reminded lately about what’s important and that’s caused me to step things back and try and focus more on my kids/family.
