Forgive me readers, for I’ve sinned – my plans to update this blog almost everyday haven’t really happened lately. But things WILL go back to normal, promise! I’m just getting over this weird constant headache that’s kept me from thinking straight in the past week or so. Not sure what it is (maybe a cold? Or just exhaustion?). All I know is that I needed a mental break BAD. So I gave myself a little bit of a blog vacation.
Thanksgiving couldn’t have come at a better time. With 3 kids, you don’t have the luxury to be overwhelmed. Each of them NEED you to be 100% present for their every mood. In result, my head was about to explode. Still sort of is, but after a nice family day (including a nap at the in-laws), I’m finally on the road to recovery.
These moments to stop and smell the turkey helped me process how much God has made me grow, and how much more growth I know He still has for me. It’s a very exciting thought, but also daunting – I sense He wants me to be braver and more mature than ever before. Each step in motherhood, as my kids grow, or each step further in writing requires that I let go. Of old fears, old concepts, old comfort zones. As I get older, I feel more and more like He’s pushing me for something new.
Speaking of new, we’re loving the uncharacteristically cool Texas weather. The other day we went to Chick-Fill-A all bundled up and it was awesome (oh the little joys of motherhood :).
What about you, what were you thankful for yesterday?
