It’s been a bit since I’ve blogged or shared anything over here. Quite honestly, this season of motherhood caught me off guard. When my babies were little, I remember people telling me that it will get easier. And it did, but other things became harder, too.
When I was mothering babies and toddlers and littles, my time was taken up by correcting and re-correcting, teaching, dressing, cleaning, etc. But in the season of raising teens and tweens, I’m finding that the difficulties are much more heart-related and I feel a sense of urgency to not let a day go by without finishing it well. And by well I mean, simply, that I ask myself this: “Did I do everything I could have today to help prepare them for tomorrow?” And, oh, the weight of that question. Of course, I fail. There are so many things I miss. But I am determined to do the best I can do.
And these are just some of the reasons this little blog has sat idle for so many months. The stretching, the pulling, the gleaning, the teaching. A season of discovery and seeking to hone in on what is best for us. I realize this might seem rather vague, my apologies for that.
But I have been writing and digging into faith, marriage, motherhood and being on another little blog with a group of women I’m honored to be a part of. Glints of Grace is a is a collaborative effort to share personal reflections on faith, marriage, motherhood and being. With different voices and different experiences, we strive to share stories with hope that even just one heart can be encouraged. So if you’re needing a bit of encouragement, or just to know you’re not alone, hop on over.
