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!

Haven is almost 6 months old!?!  Time flys!!!!!
