it seems like as if people are just now awaking from their winter/holiday slumber.
my phone at work is ringing off the hook.
emails are multiplying and so is my to-do list.
the children have school projects that require lots of my time.
i spend way too much time at the grocery store.
i am trying to keep the household running, the new etsy shop running, work stuff running, the blog, the adoption, squeeze in my bible studies, feed my desire to make and craft and rearrange and do, etc.
being a woman today is exhausting.
and i am not taking very good care of myself.
i know that i need time for exercise, and healthy meal planning and eating, and for daily devotions.
i need this time.
so what do i leave out?
what gets the chopping block so that i can make time for myself?
oh these struggles are weighing heavily on this tired momma's mind.
i have a suspicion that many of you are struggling too.
but we do a pretty good job at covering it up, don't we?
why is it that we refuse to ask for help, that we don't lean on one another as much as we should?
i am sooo much better at complaining about everything than actually DOING something positive to make a permanent change.
i'm working on it.
i have a lovely and caring God.
whom i rely on heavily, for everything.
when i shift my focus to Him, things seem so much easier.
i am trying to take care of me.
and to make time for me too.
i want to be the best 'me' i can be.
