Life tends to get hectic, doesn't it though? I know I'm not the only one to feel overwhelmed when I look around and think, "how in the world am I ever going to get all this work done?" May and June were especially difficult months with kids returning home from college, revising and polishing my msc for my editor, plans to build a house, preparation for our County Fair,...the list goes on and on.
You'd think I'd have time to just write a few words here to let y'all know I'm still alive. LOL!!
Well, I am and I'm finally coming up for air. Manuscript is sent off, kids are settled back in the nest and at work, house has a foundation and septic system (both very necessary entities!). Whew, and before the Fair really takes off, I thought I'd better catch up with the important elements in life.
Life is shorter than we all realize. We need to make the most of whatever time the good Lord gives us. I hope I've put my time to good use, but as anyone who REALLY knows me can testify, I'm very easily distracted. Which can be taken as a good thing : ) As long as I remember to return to original tasks and complete them : )
So, I'm cleaning my office -- and the rest of my house -- clearing away the clutter. I want to spend time with you here on my blog. I want to spend some summertime moments out on our deck just looking out over God's handiwork, because really, is there any place more beautiful than home? I want to live in the moment and give thanks for all the blessings in my life.
Before I sign off for the day, let me invite you to view a YouTube clip compiled by my friend, Theresa Rizzo. Theresa has nailed the writing journey for what it is...when we keep it in perspective. Thanks for taking the time to put this together, Theresa! And yes, there will come a time when pigs fly for all of us!
