Have you ever noticed that when mom gets sick the whole house falls apart? I really caught it yesterday when I woke up at 3 am with serious stomach pains. I thought I had eaten something that maybe didn’t agree with me, or that I had gotten food poisoning, but after a few hours and I started running a fever I realized that I was down with the stomach bug.
Isn’t it amazing how our whole houses fall apart when us moms get sick?
I am trying SO hard to lose weight and get healthy. For 2014, my goal is to really focus on ME and how I can get ME into shape again. For the last year, I have basically threw my own health and wellness to the side, but it is high time I take that back. It’s time I start feeling fabulous about ME again.
Here we are already into the second day of January and my one word for the year is on my mind. I have prayed and asked God what would He have me focus on this year and all I could feel being spoken to my heart was this one word –determination.
2013 was a great year for me. So many things happened to me that just really caused me to fall head over heels in love with writing and blogging. Here is a look back at my year.
I think this year has been the best year yet for our family at Christmas time. Our kids are older and I am finding that the older they get, the more I love blessing them with love and the things that they have asked for all year.
I am excited for what will be happening starting in December here on the blog. For some time I have just felt like I have lost myself and the focus on this blog. Hopefully I am going to be getting that back and my MOJO for writing is gonna return. I can’t wait to share with you all that will be happening.
Today I sit here at my computer and I just realize how hectic life has gotten for me. It is something that I never thought I would allow to happen, but it has. When life gets like this, all I can dream of doing is taking a step back.
Because of the hecticness of this lifestyle I am living, I crave for just drawing back and doing nothing — no social media, no computers, no television. Just me, my family, and the things I love to do like reading, crocheting, and cooking.
You may have noticed that I did not post anything over the last couple of days. The reason is that I was gone with my husband to check out Myrtle Beach Christian Retreat for our youth group. I had to take a moment from blogging this weekend to try coming up for air for once.
Last night and all day yesterday, my daughter and I celebrated her best friend’s birthday. My kitchen pretty much stayed messy all day. For me, that is pretty rare. I am one of those raving lunatic mothers who cannot stand for anything to be out of place. But something happened to me when I went to Type-A. I learned a valuable lesson about messy lives, and it kind of stuck with me. I’m trying to learn to be an imperfect mom and just enjoy my life.
