I have taken 3 month off from blogging. And I've missed it. I went through a time where I realized I needed to cut back on some things, that were extra, in order to better focus on the things that were and are most important. So the blog took a back seat for a few months. I now feel the freedom to come back to it WITH FREEDOM. Freedom to post when I can, when I have time, and when it's not taking away from other things.
God has been doing a lot in us lately. Well, He's always at work. But this has been a season where I can feel the work. It's not like having your teeth worked on with no drugs... no, no... it's more like truth boot camp. Almost like a coach who has you doing sports boot camp until you can hardly feel your legs underneath your body... but you know it's all for a goal and purpose. And you want to be there. I feel that. And I am grateful to be in this season.
The kids are doing well. WOW! They are growing up. The oldest, "Bear" is 3 & 1/2 going on 4 and the baby love, "Pumpkin" is now 16 months old! They get along super well and laugh at each other all the time... even when it's nap time. I am very grateful for them and I am loving being a Mom to two boys!
I'm leaning everyday with two toddlers... God is guiding me through the roller coaster days of messes - diapers - time out - cleaning - stepping on toys on the way to the bathroom - have teachable moments - watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse instead of the news - "let's share and take turns" over and over - all of the day in/day out things... I am learning. I love it. I love them.
I am really enjoying getting to know their personalities. In fact, I'm thinking about changing their blog nicknames. Hmm, we'll see?!!
Well... it's good to be back!
