It's been a while since I posted anything on this blog....ummm......like almost a year and a half!! Wow! A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. And a new member has been added to the family. February 11, 2012, Noah Aaron was born. Nevermind it was five weeks before his due date! As a result, he spent 10 days in the NICU while we waited for his little lungs to develop. Life with five has been pretty much like life with four. WILD! Our biggest "holy smokes- this is insane" was from two children to three. After three, we just got used to the crazy. :)
Having five children, ages seven and under, is very time consuming as one can imagine. Especially with home schooling. So the blog got pushed to the back burner. Way in the back. But as of late, I've really started feeling like I should start blogging again.
I am not a writer. I don't journal or keep a diary or anything. So writing is not a passion for me like it is for some. When I started this blog, I had high expectations for myself and my posts. I had all kinds of posts floating around in my head but because I couldn't get them "perfect" I never wrote them or published them on the blog. I allowed my expectations to become a burden and I eventually just stopped writing.
I feel like I've grown some in the last year or so. On the inside. Thankfully, the outside has went down a bit. :) The Lord has been so patient and gracious with me. Any growing or maturing that I have done is only because of Him. Aren't you glad "He's still working on me?"
Because of where I am now, (or at least think I am!) I don't think writing will be a burden. My vision is to write more about our day to day life. To be more real as a person and not worry so much about the perfect post. Sharing even a little bit, even if it's imperfect or scattered, is better than sharing nothing. I can't encourage anyone if I don't write anything at all.
My goal is not to have a thousand followers or this great blog name. If I can help just one mama- just encourage her to keep pressing on in this beautiful journey of being a wife, mother, and follower of Jesus-then I have accomplished much.
