Non-stop

I feel very busy lately.  Not busy in a good way but more in a non-stop way of not being able to catch my breath and help my kids sound out a word  or figure out what digit is in the  thousands place.  Too busy to repeat the word Pop Pop three times in hopes that my baby actually practices the word that he tries so hard to say, too busy to enjoy my wonderful  house (in the fleeting time I have left), my kids and my husband when he calls me. 

As I kiss my last big boy goodnight I notice the switch plate–it is a dump truck–his room was first Bob the Builder and then just construction in a Tonka sort of way and I wonder if I should pack that and take it to the new house.  I’m so not ready to leave this home where we finally created our family and embraced a life full faith.  This home holds so many memories and I’m scared that when we leave here that my memories will be gone. 

In this crazy time I can see a dump truck and it makes me cry.  As I type this I sit in the office/nursery and see Pooh helping Piglet and resting with Tigger and I think about all the times that I sat in this room and had quiet time with my babies.  I know in my heart that I am starting a new exciting chapter in my life with my kids and my husband and yet I long for those moments that seemed to last forever.  I remember seeing each one of my babies falling asleep in my arms and I hold on to that moment. 

God, thank you for my babies.  Each day I realize how precious they are and what a gift you have given me.  I beg you to give me the grace to me the mother that you desire and the mother that they need.

Just one thing

I wish that I could have one thing that I was interested in and do it.  To just enjoy one thing and get really, really super good at it.  But no–I can’t.  I love to knit, but before knitting it was crochet, quilting, scrapbooking, cooking, gardening, running, having pets–dogs, cats, fish, birds and any stray anything that needs food and water, pottery and jewelry making. 

When my daughter was asked at school what she wanted to be she said “an artist, teacher, Mom, animal shelter worker, hair cutter (she did have too much emphasis on the cutting part), and food network/cooker.  I thought to myself she will have the same trouble in life in deciding what to do.  At least she can come and visit my basement and “shop” for her latest passion.

In getting ready for this move I have been thinking about what I should focus on for this season of my life.  I’m only thinking and not coming up with ideas of what I could eliminate or thin out.  It is like getting rid of all my baby stuff–a mourning process needs to begin.  I’m not quite there yet. 

One thing is for sure–breakfast, lunch, dinner, laundry, sweeping the floor, and keeping everyone going in forward motion–will fill my day. 

Thank you God for giving me the grace to do what I do over and over and remain a joyful mom–mostly.
