I decided that when my blog-checking friend e-mailed to ask if I was alive, I needed to make blogging a priority on our Sabbath. It’s now 9:13 p.m., which isn’t exactly a priority, but it is getting done, and better yet, I have some of the month in pictures. The first group of five were taken when I was feeling pretty overwhelmed by my life in general. They are a great reminder of why I don't blog more regularly (or talk with my friends, or read, or e-mail....) The good news is, I am feeling slightly more on top of things now. I don't know if it's because it's March 1 and spring has GOTTA be around the corner (even though I don't feel like it when I look outside). Or perhaps because it's Saturday night and I've just had two sweet days with my hubby at home. Or maybe because while it was a little stressful timing wise, we entertained on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (two wonderful families and a fun group of 25+ from church) and it was really good to be with so many cool and different people. For whatever reason, my house may still be messy (although not this bad!) but life looks a whole lot more manageable!
The second group of five pictures reminds me of what I love about my life, why I love being a mom, what brings me joy, good neighbors and good husbands, and the great, and very different, personalities of my three sons. And, even on crazy weeks, it is these thoughts that I long to have at the forefront of my memory.
