In the likeness of soulemama and bluebirdbaby and these wonderful ladies, I'm going to get things going with a little bit of ordinary beauty. I've been feeling like I'm over-run lately and I hardly have time to breathe. I'm feeling that there is too much to do and I'm not spending any "real" time with my children. It feels like it is all slipping by and there is too much laundry and dishes and vacuuming and too many "no"s coming from my mouth when I talk to the children.
I'm hoping that if I just stop and look at these pictures that I will see that not all is lost. Not all my time is sucked up in the lost abyss of endless chores. There is beauty and the every day is FULL of it! It really is. This is what God has called me to do and there is always beauty in His will.
