Well well well…. it sure has been a while! I have been MIA in the blogging world for the past month, and whoa did that month fly by! We had a great Christmas, a Happy New Years, lots of laughs, lots of cakes, lots of signs made and I blinked…then what do ya know, its Happy Valentines Day (well close enough).
I don’t know about you but sometimes I wish things would just slow down a bit, relax, let me take the moments in without having to scramble to remember everything that is going on, go to this meeting, make this, bake that, oh and don’t forget you have a one year old and a hubby to hang out with, sing at this church service, practice here, drive there…..plan, plan, plan… only to remember I forgot something that was planned! Am I alone on this one, or are there others that feel this way?
I have been challenging myself to look at my busy life as a blessing, not a busy mess. I am blessed. I am blessed. I am blessed…say that with me…I am blessed. Now breath in, breath out and take in the blessed life you live in. Why are you busy? Work, kids, family, life situations? You are blessed with work, you are blessed with kids, you are blessed with family, you are blessed to be alive. The way you look at your situation can completely change how you feel about that situation. My high school principle used to come on the over head intercom every morning….9:30 sharp… and say some daily announcements. At the end of those announcements, he would always say the same quote “You can make it a great day or not, the choice is yours”. So what’s your choice today? Be surrounded by the busyness of life in fear, stress, worry or choose to enjoy that busy…. those kids wont be kids forever, that family wont be here forever, that work will soon pass when your too old to work. This post is mostly for me haha a little reminder to enjoy this life God has blessed us with!
So with that being said, I am going to hold a giveaway!!! Yeah! Everyone loves free stuff! I know I do, lol.
