You know some days I wake up and believe life starts fresh and God has big plans. Some days, usually holidays I don't.
Things have been busy with swimming lessons, soccer, work, church, Connor being home, Carter being "off" Coleman's injuries, meds, GH shots, ear drops, laundry, dishes, husband issues, AWANA, family, caming in a pop-up, weight watchers, etc...can I get an Amen?
I have put too much on my plate and I am starting to feel it. My house and car are messy, Im getting migrains. My feet hurt. My friends wonder where Iv'e been. Im not exercising. Im not spending the time with God I need too. And then the night before Easter I had to get eggs hid, baskets layed out, cute clothes layed out, and I had a break down.IS this what I have made Jesus resurrection?? Is this what I want my kids too see is important?? The next morning in my Easter dress, I had a headache hangover and swollen eyes. All of this to say I can not keep up with the Jones'. God has given me a little wake up call. He comes first and family second. I can say no or take a nap.

We have always done swimming lessons and have not ventured out to other sports but I thought the boys would love soccer. So I got all the socks, soccer balls and cleats and we went to the first practice. He had a hard time keeping up with the running. He fell forward 100 times but he always got up and kept going. What more can I ask for? He loves it now, and is keeping up a little better now. He is actually not the smallest one on his team. He is by far the cutest soccer player I've ever seen.
Coleman went to the bathroom and he usually yells for me to turn the light on so I got up and to my surprise the light was already on and he had a big grin on his face. He can turn on the light. It was an exciting moment and Coleman knew it was a big deal too. I still have to turn it off but I thought ya'll would think it was as big a deal as me.
