Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! I've taken a week off from posting due to illnesses in the family. This past week we have dealt with a fussy baby that refused to nap, sore throats, body aches, and last but not least, my birthday girl got an ear infection! We had a few restless nights and lots of exhausted days. The kiddos went in today for a wellness check and everything seems to be going back to normal, which is really good for this momma! Since it was such a rough week, I have not been able to finish my book yet and the project has been put on hold for the moment.

Even though I haven't been able to start, Seven, I have continued with my donating. I even found a local woman who helps the homeless here in my hometown!I am finding I that I have a heart for helping out those that don't have as much as most.

While I think this is great, I want to do more! It has been so difficult with the kiddos to find time for everything my heart wants to do. I would love to start a ministry at my church for the needy but I am just finding it too difficult to juggle too much with these kids at home. Last week was a good example of that! Just when I felt like I had gotten stuff figured out, one gets sick and takes us all down with him! Now a week or so later, I am finally feeling back to par.

Since I have been so busy with the sick kiddos, we haven't gotten together to discuss the book yet and I feel like it has been put on the back burner for now. I hope you all are not too disappointed! I do, however, encourage you to keep reading your books at home and find things that you can do yourself!

Sorry this post is not as encouraging as I would like it to be, but please bare with me. Next week will be better! : )

  1. Sometimes you can find encouragement in odd places. It can be encouraging to know that you aren't the only one who struggles to find time to make it all fit, and that even the moms who seem calm and collected sometimes feel a little out of control.
