I find myself time and time again not knowing quite what to say.
So hey. Hi. Sup? How's it going out there?
You having a good day?
We are. 🙂
One kid is napping, one is in her pjs, one is in his underwear (I don't know why), and one is sitting here next to me chewing his hands and cooing.
Welp, someone just lost their temper.
I do that sometimes. More than I'd like to admit. And then I beat myself up like crazy for it.
But it's okay. "I'm sorry" goes a long way. None of us our perfect. We need to teach our kids that imperfection is okay.
My friend shared this link with me yesterday and I think she knew I needed it.
I'm sharing it with you because maybe you need it now. Or later.
I have a million excuses I could post as to why I haven't blogged in two weeks, but I'll spare ya.
I have been doing behind the scenes stuff if that counts! Check out my updated about me post.
I often think about quitting blogging.
Am I doing my kids a disservice by taking some time away from them? Am I wasting my time? Am I causing myself unneeded stress?
But then I'll get a comment on instagram or facebook that makes me stop and say "wow. That's the reason I'm doing this." God brought me onto this blog for a reason. You brought me into your life for a reason. I like feeling that I'm not alone. I like seeing that you're happy you're not alone. I love that my words or a post may have helped you in some way. I don't think I could give that up.
I think of the posts that allow me to contribute to our income. Even if it just pays for groceries, or some bills, that's one less thing to worry about. Thank you for letting me do that.
I think of all of the friends I've made through blogging and my life would not be the same without them. Thank you for being there and getting me.
All of you have changed my life whether you know it or not.
I don't think I could give up blogging.
Maybe I just need to get better at time management. Or get better at not falling asleep at 9pm while watching Seinfeld. 🙂
