Whatever it is, I know this: I'm tired.
I'm tired of trying to be good at everything.
I see it on facebook, I see it on blogs, I see it at church. I see another mom who is really GREAT at something and think, "Man, I wish I could do *that*!". So I add it onto my already dangerously high pile of things I want to be GREAT at. Inevitably, this leads to guilt. 'Cause I can't be GREAT at everything. I just can't. I don't have the time (and I doubt I have the skill). And while I'm trying to be GREAT at something, everything else is falling apart.

So instead of wanting to be great at EVERYthing, I'm gonna (once again) focus on what stage of life I'm in right now. What is my job when I wake up each day? What is going to help me best accomplish this goal? I'm a wife. I'm a momma who home educates. I'm a manager of my home. What can I do that will help me in these roles?

Biblical basis ~ reading & prayer: by myself, w/ hubby, w/ children, w/ missional community
Health, wellness, diet, nutrition ~ taking care of my husband, littles & myself
Home Management ~ organization, chores & training, maintaining a routine w/ flexibility, hospitality
Education ~ natural part of our day, regular book work + life as learning + loads of reading.
Creativity ~ crochet business, home decor & blessing others.

So (once again) I am choosing to change.
Thank you Lord, for putting up with me. For loving me.
