A Mom's True Confession

I am sorry everyone, I haven't been around much lately. Some days I just don't have the time, other times I haven't felt much like writing. When you combine homeschooling a 2nd grade and Kindergartner along with a very busy, climbing 14 mo. old, well you can imagine how my day must be. Full of laughter and good times (yeah - more like yelling and screaming). Help me!!!!!!

Then there are days where I am online and I'll type a really great post only to delete it seconds later before publishing it. There are so many things I would like to say, but sometimes don't.

Today I had a really bad day, almost to the point of tears. My 14 mo. old has found his screaming voice,  my 7 and 5 year old have mastered the art of tattling, rough housing, asking a million questions in order to avoid completing their work (mind you - all of this is going at the same time). It is hard even trying to get a mental break [let me explain Mental Break, a few minutes of quiet without hearing wining, crying, screaming, tattling, asking for everything in the kitchen that is not nailed down - you get the point]. Every night is a chore getting the kids to bed. Sometimes the older two are fast asleep and my little guy thinks 8, 9, 10 , 11, and 12 o'clock are playtime hours. What!!!

please excuse the typos if any - this goes to show what three kids under the age of 7 can do to a person mentally.

Thanks for letting me vent today. I love my babies with all my heart, but today they took me there and I just need a few moments of peace so I can hear my own thoughts in order to save my sanity. Have you every been where I am?

A Season of Reflection

Life is so precious especially when it comes to an end for those you love. We celebrated the vibrant life of my Aunt who died of Cancer recently. We are a very close family unit and we were all affected by her passing.

I took some time off to spend with my loved ones and family as we all try to regroup after our loss. She will be truly missed. I wanted to write many times before, but just could not find the right words to say. Death is very personal and it effects us all in different ways. We will miss our loved ones because we want them here with us but she is in a far better place and not in any pain anymore. We will all cherish her life, her legacy and we will hold her memory near and dear to our hearts.

A message to you - Love your family because you just don't know when they will leave this earth. We will all die one day, but you must choose where you will spend eternity. Will it be in heaven or hell? As a believer in Christ, I know I will see her again when we get to heaven, but if you don't know Him you will spend eternity forever separated in a place of fear and torment.

Please choose wisely! Thank you for taking the time to listen.
