Hey Sweet Little Blog,
Wow! I can’t believe it has been almost 3 months since I’ve written! Life is growing and abounding much faster that I can record it. I so want to be present in the lives of all my bebes – and more importantly- my Man, so you have taken a back seat for a bit.
I have thought of you often – my mind playing guilt trips on me at times –
‘you didn’t record that!’
‘You’ve only done updates on two of your children!’
‘Will you remember this?!’
But here’s the deal, I have been present. Present to my people, not off recording what my people have done. I have snapped pics here and there on my sweet little iPhone that was a gift from Chris. (so grateful for that!!) I have memories captured there. And I do have memories scribbled on my heart, too. Just in a way that is more like my grandmothers’ hearts were scribbled on (and not recorded). I’ve taken this time to re-prioritize what I want, and what I want this blog to be —-> REAL, me – faults and all – shining what Jesus is doing in my life (mostly through motherhood). I hope to be back recording, soon. But, we will see what that looks like. I will eventually update Crews, Maverick, and Haven’s life! I am just determined to be present in their lives first. Oh, and if you think I can update you after they go to bed – ha! I spend time with Chris and then go to bed myself! (If I don’t sleep I have an even more difficult time staying present!)
Thankful for the grace of Jesus during this super busy season in our lives.
And readers – are there any of you left?!?! I hope this encourages you to not worry about recording every little detail! Fight to be present!
