Busy and productive is the season of life I’m living in at this moment. As a stay at home mom, honestly I'm surprised. After I decided to quit flying and stay home, I thought I would only contribute clean floors and a fed baby to this world. Only for a season, of course and those are things that need to be done. They just do and I’m happy to do them.
But recently I have had some really exciting opportunities. I’m in the middle of organizing a bra drive event for Mrs. Pate’s blogger bra drive. My blog is growing. (Thank you for reading, commenting, following and encouraging me!) Voices: Write to be Heard, a local writer’s group I’m a part of is rolling forward and picking up momentum. I get to go to a blogging conference in October.
Yesterday, my husband warned me about taking too much on. I was surprised to hear that come out of his mouth. Jason works more than anyone I know. (Well, I think he and my dad might be tied.) But he’s right. If you spread yourself too thin, everything suffers. I have to choose the things I add to my life. I can’t do it all well. I just can’t.
I feel incredibly lucky that dreams I didn’t even know I had are coming true. This season of staying home with Ty has been exciting and full. I’m growing and writing. And cleaning floors. And feeding babies.
