so, just thought i'd post a thought today...I have been consumed with my relationships lately. Partly because I spoke last weekend at a mother, daughter, sister "tea" at church and was doing a little research and prayer on the subject. But it got me thinking about my own relationships and just a quick observation. Since its pretty much proven that our relationships are the most important think to most people...as far as what they say, why is it that our relationships are the first thing we take for granted? Whether it is our relationship with God, our spouse, our children, or our friends....when things are going well, we just let them slide. maybe its because we know they will be there when we need them...but the bigger question is, are we there for them when they need us? Are we in tune with them enuf to know??? Sometimes I am not. I hate to say it, but I get so wrapped up in my own little world (inside my home) that i am oblivious to the lives of those who are "most important" to me. I hate that about myself. This is one thing i need to work on. But it is more than just being able to be there for my friends, etc....it is about balance. That is the key I think. So, this is what i want to work on. Balance. I want to have that in my life. I think that will make my world spin in a nice even rotation and not in spurts like it is now. Wanna try it with me??? Give me some imput on what works for you....I'd sure like to get some fresh, new ideas!
I am a wife and mom of 5. I grew up wanting nothing more than to be the one who takes care of my family. Now I know that is much harder than my mom made it look when I was a kid! But, still, I love it and would not trade my life for anything in the world. I have great kids who, of course, are spoiled rotten, but are good kids non the less. I am married to a great man who I love dearly. I am devoted to my entire family, immediate and extended. I love my church and I sing on the praise team and this year will be my first year as Mpact girls minsitry coordinator. I also have a buisness with my sil called Lasting Impressions. We do onsite hair and makeup for weddings, proms, and such. I do the makeup. She does the hair. I hope to inspire anyone who chooses to read my blogs, and hopefully make them laugh occasionally.
