I’m not sure if that’s how one would spell that…do you know the reference? Home Improvement? Tim Allen? Grunting noises? Hello? Is this thing on?
Life is plodding along like it has a way of doing…we’ve been not very busy. We’ve had one exciting event (Charlotte started school). I haven’t felt like myself, and not like blogging at all. Who knows when I’ll come around…I don’t.
Today I had a thought (yes, just the one) and wanted to write it down.
I’ve been feeling kind of down on myself because I am NOT involved in making the world a better place. Well, down for a lot of reasons, but this is one of them. You know, I’m not actively involved in politics. I’m not super ‘green’. I’m not advocating for anyone. I’m not volunteering. I don’t teach Sunday school. I actually hardly participate. I don’t even have a ‘real’ job. Ha.
So, yeah. I’ve been thinking about that.
And I thought, “I have kids.”
No, but really. I am (pretty much) with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Libby will sleep three or four hours in her bed, but other than that…it’s all the time. Yes, I read. Yes, I craft. But they are my focus – and they should be. I am not complaining in the slightest.
If you want, I can go off on a tangent about how wonderful my sweet adorable children are…
You’re good? Okay.
So here’s my thought. I have three small children…who will soon become big children…who will then turn into adolescents…and then adults.
And they will do all those things I mentioned above. And they will make the world a better place. I know.
I’ve been going along these past few weeks feeling like I have lost myself. Like…I don’t know who I am anymore.
Today I thought…that’s okay.
My children are going to be shaping their own worlds someday, it makes sense that I am giving everything I’ve got to start them off on the right track.
