life with three little ones seems to be going at warp speed... downtime is a hazy memory & when it comes i usually collapse into sleep for however long i am able. it is a beautiful, crazy, hectic, peaceful, rhythmic, full, abundant life & i am so very thankful for it; even though i stink at motherhood more often than not & lose my patience more often than not these days & am learning truly just what patience is... long-suffering. not that i am suffering at all, just learning how to Be. how to be & stay present, how to be & stay focused, how to be & stay an example to follow, how to be & stay determined to work through my own junk, our own junk. it's a full, full life.


in other news, im going to try & document our life a little more. here's to hoping!

i try to imagine myself doing daily life w/more than one child & it scares me. so, i obviously needed to read this. when it comes down to it, all that's required of us is to be present & to be a vessel, right?

YES! & even that can be so, so hard sometimes. & sometimes it feels so, so easy. thank God He is the ultimate caretaker of my children.

also, serving my children from an overFlowing cup, instead of a cup half empty. that is hard, keeping filled.

but it is all still beautiful.

It's great to hear your words again, my friend. Also, I think that "stinking at motherhood" is a relative idea. We all stink at it some days, but the world keeps turning. "You only fail when you quit," one of my karate teachers used to say to me. I hold that dear to my heart.
