Thoughts

I think my Heavenly Father knew I needed children, maybe that's why my first child was such a complete surprise. I don't know how long I would have waited to have children if he hadn't sent Kinsley to me when he did. It may not have been under the best circumstances at the time, but all has worked out and I am grateful for my life experiences.
My children make me want to be a better person for them. So that I can help teach them the things they will need as they grow and develop and lead lives of their own. It's overwhelming at times feeling like I am being pulled between being a Wife and a Mom and working from home and taking care of all the things that need to be taken care of. As I am typing this I can think of probably 20 things that need to get done.
With all the things that have transpired in our family, I think Heavenly Father has been trying to tell me to slow down. I need to take better care of myself. I need to spend more time doing nothing. I need to take my kids to the park and soak in the beautiful sunshine. I need to spend less time on the computer.
So, I am taking a little break from this space for a bit I haven't felt very inspired in my blogging lately, I'm hoping a break will help that. I need time to recharge. I need time to catch up on things and I need to slow down and spend more time with my family.

If there is a Time Out for Women coming to your area, you should DEFINITELY go. I just got home from ours in memphis and it was amazing. I really think you could enjoy it. :)
