As a new mom to now three, these past three weeks have been a tornado. Loving on our little blessing, not sleeping, trying to figure out his needs, while still meeting the girls needs and my husbands. No matter how tired I am, or how much I just want to find a quiet corner where no one says, "Momma look", and it is a clean well organized corner (I do believe those corners exist....somewhere); I can't help but feel so blessed. Even when my little boy is screaming, he is so precious. Even when I have said, "Please, let's not say my name for just a few seconds," I yearn for those two little girls to want my attention.
As I've said before, I am a confessed blog stalker. Chatting at the sky is a blogger that I've followed for awhile. She has recently wrote a book, Grace for the Good Girl that has made my Christmas wish list. As I have gone through these past three weeks I have found myself in the "figure it out" mode. Trying to figure out my newborns needs, trying to figure out how I am going to work in a run, trying to figure out how I am going to fulfill my girls needs for homeschooling. The list goes on. Do you do that? Are you a "figurer outer"? (Yes, that is a real term for some of us real people).
I sat down today and took a moment to read her post today and so should you. She seems to put my thoughts together better than I can. Quiet is what I need; silence in spirit. So I ask the same question she does, "...in the most honest place where you are today, what is it you truly seek?"
