I'm struggling lately. To find balance that is.
I give myself the freedom to skip the house work or delay bringing the movies back or running errands so I can spend that last precious hour of daylight outside on the swing set with my son or taking a four wheeler ride around the block with him and David. But I've been finding it really hard to find balance between it all lately. I know you can't do it all but lately I feel like if I am doing anything with out my family I feel like I am wasting precious time. Perhaps it was David's illness or the hurricane fiasco I have no idea...but I just want to spend all my time loving and nurturing my relationships with them. I feel almost like something has changed inside of me. I never really had that instant motherly bond that women talk about when they look at their newborn baby, I felt more obligation and responsibility than anything....and that really took by by surprise. But gradually I began to feel it and lately it's been on overload. So tonight is date night. For Zane and I. We will make rice crispy treats and decorate pumpkins. I thought about carving a pumpkin but since he is still a little young, a dear friend of mine recommended painting pumpkins (thanks Elizabeth!). Should be interesting!
Ok, so 365's for the week...
That's all folks!
