Sandy, I must join you in the February is crazy busy club!! Just to hit the high points: My birthday ( :, Valentine parties for homeschool and girl scouts, taking my Girl Scouts camping in a winterized cabin, GIRL SCOUT COOKIES coming in, progressive dinner, starting a new bible study, various meetings for things I am involved in (homemakers, pampered chef, homeschool support group), and the grand finale of Disney at the end of the month. I also have to get our tax stuff together!! I want to hire a personal assistant, nanny and housekeeper-just for a couple of weeks.
On top if all of that I am still wanting God to use me to help several friends with problems, physical and otherwise. I know lots of people who are sick and recovering from surgeries and I want to be there for that as well.
I love being a woman. My husband would look at my list and think I was crazy, but I like it. Being busy keeps me going. I look forward to projects and lose the ability to study and pray when everything is ho-hum. When it is crazy busy, I have a forced dependence on God and he is ALWAYS faithful.
Somehow in the busyness of life, I still manage to take time for blogging. Honestly probably at least an hour a day. Sometimes that hour is in two shifts, but I love it. I used to feel the same way about email, but blogging is so much more personal. A very cool thing happened this weekend. I have been posting and reading a COMPLETE STRANGER'S blog for some time now. www.jacindashanks.blogspot.com I have enjoyed reading her blog because we are at similar stations in life. I also read www.deanaland.blogspot.com because of my friend www.sarasinerdarling.blogspot.com . These ladies inspire me from afar even though we have never met. The other blogs I read are more because I am keeping up with friends (I am tired of typing in addresses). ANYWAY< Jacinda was posting places she has lived and Paducah, KY was number 1. Later she posts Reidland as the home of her grandparents and goes into a lengthy post about Reidland Church of Christ(my home church) and after posting and emailing we determine that her grandparents lived on MY STREET!!! My street is old and a dead end with few houses. I was certain I lived in her grandparents old house, but it ended up being a neighbor. STILL< very cool connection. Also, a girl named Jenni chimes in that Bret and Summer, her churches new worship minister and wife, came from Paducah she thinks!! Yes indeed, from my church!! I still miss them dreadfully!! www.summernicole.blogspot.com Also connected in that is one of our elders daughters who is the secretary there www.ryanandlesli.blogspot.com -I am sure Jenni knows her as well. Anyway it is all very interesting how connected we all are if we just visit long enough!!
I am awed and inspired by all the connecting and have made a new blogging friend www.jettybetty.blogspot.com who found me from Jacinda and has twins and then later another child which is alot like me. Her kids are all in college now so I am very interested in her life and wisdom!!
I love blogging and now you know why.
