When life throws you lemons

Today was one of those days that you wish you could either get over with as fast as possible or start over. Its a good thing that tomorrow is another day. Something I shared with the boys as I put them to bed. I want them to know that Mummy makes mistakes too. I spent it trying to catch up with too much and falling way short of the mark. Combined with too many late nights it was always going to head for disaster. Unfortunately the boys seem to bear the brunt of it Still I reached the end {usually defined by getting the boys successfully off to bed} I had a list of things that I always intend to do but never actually do because I am too tired or it has got too late. Tonight a thought struck that when I least feel like it I should do something for someone else. So I made a card for a friend and it felt great. While finding some verses to share I was reminded of the annoying line that had found its way on my new bible. I have been meaning to see if I could get it off {to no avail}. Following on with my thoughts I decided instead to make something of it. So it has now become a flower. A reminder that when life throws you lemons you can become sour or make lemonade.

Where have I been?

I haven't written for too long. Not because I haven't anything to write about {the ideas keep coming} but I have been focused on enjoying the moments in between {the daily grind} One thing my boys are great at is enjoying whatever they are doing at that moment. I've been slowing down, finishing things that I have started and finding what is important. When I look back at my first post it sums it up really. I made this blog so I could have a place to pass on my thoughts and put together the wealth of resources that I refer to. Time to come back to it.
