November Please Be Good to Me

Just when I feel like I have this crazy season of Motherhood in the bag, I quickly become inflated like a balloon pricked by a sharp pin. POP!

I honestly can not recall much of October. I feel as though it was so busy I lived an entire alternate life inside of an alternate world, which was completelty disconnectd from my mind and my memories. Did I just live, go, go, go and kick into survival mode? It’s pretty sad when you have to go to social media just to see what you did last week in hopes you did actually take a picture of a real actual moment that did happen, or go through text messages with your husband to recall an event you needed to document for whatever reason, but don’t realize that event in fact happened in September! September! I feel like you were my friend last year not last month.

****And exactly after I finished the previous sentence my four year old opened our gate and let my wild dog out. I just sat down after chasing him across the streets of our neighborhood.****

He is new to our family as we have only had him for about a month, and he loves to test the limits.

It’s funny I decided to write a blog to encourage other mothers. I often feel like I am the one in need of encouragement.

Right when you think you have Motherhood pegged down, life comes with constant changes and challenges causing you to fall off the tight line your walking. I am in a circus act right now but I can’t seem to make it across the tight walk. I keep falling into the net down bellow that is catching me. My net of course would be my husband in this season. The net is a constant reminder to get back on the tight rope until I make it all the way across.

Having a Husband who loves you, cares about you, and simply adores you is a blessing that I will never take for granted! With out him and just his love and support, I often wonder how I would even make it. ❓❓❓❓

I have neglected my blog because quite frankly I have had no time to sit down and write. No time to think about anything that would be helpful. No time to create something funny or fun, for you my readers, and for that I apologize.

I’m in a pruning season. But I know through God’s love and grace I will come out of it something beautiful and a better person because of it.

Can you relate? What is some advice you could share that has helped you relax and keep on trucking?

  1. I love your honesty here!! I think sometimes just being real is the most encouragement you can give to another. Here’s to hoping for a little bit slower speed for your holidays! 🙂


    1. Awe thank you! It seems to be slowing down a little! I’m just not so sure why I can’t ever seem to feel caught up in my home. Trying to remind myself that these are the times of my life I will miss one day when my nest is empty!
