What Matters?

It’s been a while now since I’ve been a guest on someone else’s blog.

Life has been so hectic lately that I’ve had little time to stop and spend time with anyone.

But, when Courtney, from The Mommy Matters, asked me to come by and spend the day, I couldn’t say no.

There’s something magical about Courtney…something that I am drawn to.

She’s lovely, kind, and remarkably talented.

And I’m honored that she invited me.

So, please follow me over there today, where I’m sharing a small moment that I spent with Katie this week…a moment when life simply stopped for a while.

And while you’re over at Courtney’s place, please poke around and stay a while. I have no doubt that you’ll adore her.

Don’t miss Courtney on TwitterFacebook, and Pinterest (where I probably see her most!).

Heaviness

I’m in a complete funk.

You could call it writer’s block.

Or burnout.

Or lethargy.

Or what feels like the onset of depression.

So, I haven’t really blogged.

I haven’t shared many small moments, or things that brought me joy, or much, for that matter.

I just haven’t had it in me to write.

But, I know that in order to get back to it, I have to just get something down, even if it doesn’t make much sense.

So, here’s some of what’s swirling around in my brain right now…

I need to learn to take on less…to say “no” more often.

Apologies, even when heartfelt and accompanied with regret, aren’t always accepted. And I have to be okay with that.

This baby that we want so desperately may never come.

Far too many small moments have been slipping right through my fingers and I’ve felt powerless to stop them.

There hasn’t been nearly enough music, laughter, ice cream, finger painting, and squealing lately.

Everything just feels big. And heavy.

And that has to change.

Please bear with me as I regroup and refocus a bit.

I’ll get it together…I promise.

Small Moments Spotlight #11

This week, I have one lovely post for you in the Small Moments Spotlight.

One post that shows heartache, committment, love, sacrifice, and determination.

One post that brought me to tears.

One post that climbed into my heart and set up camp.

Please read, “This is the way we go to sleep” by Leighann from The Endless Rant of a Multitasking Mumma.
