So, I’ve been a little MIA still, and I don’t have a very good excuse, but I was busy doing more things elsewhere. Here are a few random thoughts about what is happening in my life.
- A friend of mine is going through a rough time at home, and I’ve offered to help her out with her site while she’s overloaded. It’s a great opportunity but slightly scary because she has a huge following. I could use your prayers!
- Another friend is having a hard time with her teens and it made me realize how important it is that we cover our kids in prayer often. The enemy is out to destroy our families through our marriages and our children. We have to be wary and fight!
- I’ve been told that I’m not very good at having fun, but I’m pretty good at making my obligations enjoyable. I didn’t like the comment! Yet I see a lot of truth to that. Part of it is simply being a mom, but I decided to put a little more effort into doing things that I delight in.
So I planned a weekend of fun! Last night my hubby and I went out to dinner. Today I’m going to take my niece out to lunch. Tonight I’m having dinner with my sister. And tomorrow I’m going to hang out at my friend’s house, make her lunch, and catch up on life.
Plus, my family has planned two trips this year, a rare treat that typically we can’t afford. We just got our plane tickets and hotel settled yesterday for a special trip – a surprise for our kids. So this summer I will get to visit with several friends and family I haven’t seen in years! I’m quite excited.
What do you think of this random picture my friend Christy took of a moose family? It reminds me that family is the most important thing in life, and we need to put our effort there first.
