Forever and a Day!

It seems I've taken an unintentional break from my blogging the last few weeks! Life has been busy and good. We made a decision to get rid of our cable service this month so we won't spend so much time in front of the television, but now we've become addicted to the Farm Town game on Facebook! Oh, those darn weaknesses!!!

I love my life! I love being Emilee's mother and I love preparing to be a mother to our soon to be daughter! I love my incredible husband! I love being surrounded by family and feeling the closeness and love we share. I love having goals and reasons to improve myself and my home. I love knowing who I am, and that with God all things are possible!

Why then, is it so hard to stay focused on the things that really matter? The things that really really bring happiness? I don't know. There are a million answers to that question. I'm just grateful when I wake up each morning and realize I have another day to try again. There is so much to learn and so much to let go of in this life. I feel like I've been working on my weaknesses forever and a day, and still here I am addicted to one more thing that distracts me from something greater.

I need to get out of the house more and stand on more mountain tops, swim in more lakes, sit around more campfires! Those are the kind of things that make me feel alive! I want to teach my daughters to love the world we live in. For today though, I'll settle in for a good night sleep, and we'll see if I can waddle my pregnant body out for a stroll with Emmy tomorrow! I know I'll get it figured out eventually.
