I spent a couple months fighting to keep this blog alive, my payment wasn't working and I could not figure out for the life of me how to get in. It was 3 days before my domain was about to expire when by some miracle I was able to get in. I made my payment and the blog is alive and well. I realized in all of this how much I miss this space in my life. I miss taking pictures, and I miss recording our every day.
It is amazing to me how I look back and hear myself say life was busy, or challenging. Sometimes I wish I could go back and smack my past self, but other times I wonder if that is just the progression of life. Every stage feels busy and overwhelming, it is in these moments that we grow so that we will be able to handle the next stage.
Life right now is busy, and I understand it is of my own doing, but I have only ever tried to follow the direction I have been given. Right now I work full time at a job I most of the time enjoy, I am doing finance and I LOVE finance!! I am also going to school, it has been a nice gradual dip before I plunge fully into getting my degree, something I have dreamed of doing for many years. But most important I am Mom and Wife, those two things always come first. Because of this I do a lot of running and juggling and I am constantly exhausted. But if I am honest I am happy, I am lucky my family is so supportive of my dreams, and we are learning to better support each other and be a little more patient.
In all the craziness I feel I appreciate days like today more and more. We woke up to a giant snowstorm that shortened our church meetings. Rob and Hunter came home and headed out to help shovel out our neighbors, everyone was helping everyone else, just as it should be. My kids helped me make dinner, I was able to sneak in a nap, we made jello poke cake, and enjoyed a delicious meal together. The rest of the day has been spent relaxing and I have been editing pictures.
Can you believe those two picture were taken 24 hours apart?!?! We have desperately needed the moisture, but I would be lying if I didn't say I am anxious for spring to come.
