Quick Moment

I am loving staying at home.  This has been a lesson along with a blessing. I have always worked at such at a fast pace and that I have always set and controlled the time and goals.  However, the pace has changed and my control as well, has slowed.  You would think I could control the tempo in this house the way that I want, I mean this is my schedule, I do the planning and telling what to do right?!?   Ha!  Not so much, things aren't happening the way I want, not as fast...but oh, on His time!  I am learning I'm not in control, He is!  The last little gift He gave me, has been put in my hands at all times...even when I go to the bathroom!!! I love her, but wow...how things are totally are not going as I plan but, I am learning that I don't have to rush, yet slow down and process this sweet time.

We have rushed through Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and started the purge syndrome once again!  But, I am in the right in the mind set I need to be in.  For awhile we have let the piles stack and overlooked more than we ever have before, due to the fact we lived a fast pace life.  I have pulled up the rubber gloves and flapped open the garbage bags and sailed through stacks of pure clutter.  I am feeling relieve room by room.  My days are busy, however I am finding the structure to keep me in the positive mind set that I need.  I am so glad to be back and blogging, especially with my cute side kick renamed "the daycare dropout"!
She is keeping up with the others pretty well.  We are back to the normal schedule, long weekends are gone and strep came through and passed our house last week.  Glad to feel like we are in our normal routine.
