Wow, it is 2009!

Ok, I'm a "bad" blogger! It is going on two months since I posted. I got motivated to post because people were complaining AND I was getting sick of reading "I've been bitten by Twilight" each time I opened Internet Explorer! So, here's a new post... Christmas was good, New Years was kind of boring, tried to stay up but then gave up around 11:20pm and am now trying to get back in to the swing of things. January always seems to be the time I get motivated to reorganize life, the house, the closets etc. but I am having a hard time getting started... just want to sleep, maybe it is the lack of Sun? My resolution for the year, is not to make one! :-) So, where does that leave me?? I'm learning to not plan each moment, to have realistic expectations for myself and what I can do in a day and to NOT be upset with myself for not doing it ALL. I'm learning to truly live by faith and WOW, it is scary! But God is AWESOME and faithful! I'm learning to really count my blessings, to be thankful for the dishes and the laundry, at least I have dishes and clothes to wash and how VERY BLESSED I am to be at home with my girls. Yes, it is hard, yes it is overwhelming, yes it can be down right boring sometimes but really do I want it to be different? Do I want someone else to care for my babies? Do I want a job outside the home AND a job at home? NO! It has proved to be an interesting start to a new year. I think this will be a year of learning and growing for me. A year to learn what is really important, to grow in my faith, to be a more patient wife and mother and to watch God work in my life. Happy New Year! I'm grateful for YOU!
