I am woman - let me sleep, it's all about perspective!

Wow, I post a blog about how crazy my life is this week, and get all these kind comments back! Thank you!!

obviously a lot of you lovely ladies are feeling the same way...




funny thing is, this year I am really trying to slow things down...well, as much as I can at this stage of life with a busy household

sometimes it just takes a little perspective




you know the day I posted, the really crazy day...

well, that evening I drove my son up to his volleyball game, and ran to a local coffee shop to grab a quick coffee before the game started

it was quiet in the coffee shop, with it being dinner hour and all, so I struck up a conversation with the sweet lady serving behind the counter

I was explaining why I needed a coffee (albeit decaff!!), as I was off to watch my son's game...



she looked wistfully at me, and said "I wish I had a son to go watch"

misunderstanding her, I replied "Oh, do you have a daughter?"

she proceeded to tell me how they have been trying for a year for a baby, about all the tests and Dr visits...

it brings tears to my eyes just remembering her face and quiet words
I heart her courage




THAT was perspective ladies. No matter how crazy this stage of life, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am blessed with three young lives I get to raise and disciple

and there are people out there with much bigger challenges, maybe even some of you reading this now... 



so good to know God is bigger than all this


and one final note for those of you who read my blog and are in the wonderful baby/young children stage of life

...don't stop creating, be realistic about what you can get done, but don't give up something you love. If being creative is a part of who you are, just fit it in where you can. Just look at how creative God is and we are made in His image!

Happy days,
Tracey

PS. This one was my favorite...

Beautiful post! This morning, I was complaining that my dad keeps calling me and waking me up in the mornings. Normally I don't mind, but I was really tired this morning. My husband gently reminded me, to be thankful I have a dad to talk to. He lost his suddenly 4 years ago. Puts things in perspective. Wow! Didn't mean to write a book. All that to say, I know how you feel. Be blessed today!

What a wonderful post! Love your basket to cheer your friend!

God has seasons we all go through. As an older woman who's children are grown I NOW realize how fast the time goes (wish I could have had that perspective then!) Each season is a blessing in it's own right.
