How do you do it?

I get asked a lot how I manage to get everything done as a mom of 4 and working full time. I've never had a great answer.  My best answer has been I just do it.  There's no secret, I'm just living my life.

Over the 4th of July weekend I was asked MANY times.  After that weekend I really started thinking about a good answer to that question as I'm sure it'll continue.  And I realized, it's not about me.

I don't do it alone, and I haven't been giving credit where I should. 

I don't do this alone, I have God by my side.  He is what makes all this possible.

I'm disappointed in myself for not recognizing this sooner and voicing it.  I missed opportunities to share my faith.   I knew I needed to write and share about this and now, the next time I ask, I hope I have the courage to speak up and say I'm not doing it along; that we have God on our side.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.

Goodbye Sleep Sack

Sine Ruthie was born she has been swaddled or in a sleep sack every night.  A couple months ago the sitter stopped it at nap time for her, but she continued here at home.  When she was much younger we tried to stop wearing it but it ended in tears and we didn't think it was worth the fight.  Last night she said NO! when I went to put it on her.  She didn't want to wear it and wasn't going to.  Today has been the same, my baby is growing up all on her own!
