Blessings and Balance

I was really wanting to get back into a regular schedule with blogging. I planned out all my posts and even wrote a few in advance.

But then life happened.

Blessings happened.

I am blessed to have a wonderful three-month-old baby who requires my almost constant care and attention. She takes up a lot of my time and energy, but she is beyond worth it.

I am blessed to have the most wonderful husband ever. Cultivating our relationship together takes time, but it is not a burden. It is a blessing I would be lost without.

I am blessed to be able to take online classes to finish my Bachelor’s degree. Almost every day I think about or talk about just quitting because it takes so much time and mental energy that I feel like I just don’t have right now, but I am truly thankful I have this opportunity. And I will be SO HAPPY when I am done, Lord willing, in April 2019.

I am blessed to have a house to clean, food to cook, and laundry to wash and fold! I must admit, not all of these things happen every day…or even every week (as far as cleaning certain areas of the house goes), but I am thankful.

I’m just trying to find a balance.

I want to do it all! I want to fully care for Mae, give Sam all my time and attention, get good grades in school, cultivate relationships with others, blog regularly, cook hot meals, have a clean house, wash and fold laundry regularly, bake bread, sew clothes, read books…the list goes on and on.

I know I can’t do all of these things all of the time, so I am trying to find some sense of balance in my life so I can do some of these things some of the time (and some of them all of the time).

How do you find balance in your life?
