About Me

My photo
Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

Prioritizing...

That's a word that is so very hard for most of us to do.  Prioritize.  To figure out.  To sort.  What should go first, second and so on.  It's not easy.  You have to make a hard choice.  Something has to always be second or third or even get dropped off the list completely.  It just has to, it's life. 

These past several months I've had to do some serious prioritizing in my life.  Rather than write about our lives here, I've had to live that life.  Probably more like, hang on while life flew past.  With four VERY active kids in a boatload of activities, I find myself more in my car than I've ever been.  It's a tough choice for me, because while I'm in my car something at home is not getting done.  Laundry, cooking, schooling for that matter.  But it was our choice to do this.  To raise these four kids.  To have this schedule.  But...it doesn't mean it is an easy choice. 

Prioritizing...

For now, this is what I have to do.  Be in the car.  Be in the moment.  Be present in my children's lives.  Live.  Right here.  Right now. 

So while we are a little bit absent from our blog at the moment, know that we are living passionately everyday together...

...and that is as it should be
