Let me just list some of the things I've been up to lately...
~ Taking care of 3 rowdy little boys
~ Working part time for our church preschool program
~ Selling Avon
~ Running a playgroup
~ Helping in Josh's classroom
~ Running a high school small group
~ Cooking, cleaning, laundry... I could go on and on :o)
You get the picture! So as I was looking over some of these things I realized that I was doing way to much and not doing a very good job at any of them. I've decided it's time to say no and just focus on the most important things in life... my family.
I'm only going to have these kids in my home for a short time. I need to make the most of my time with them. I want to teach them the things they need to know about life. I want to take time to just sit with them and read. I want to love on them as much as possible!
I'm giving up playgroup and told Josh's teacher I can't help in the classroom this year. Hopefully this will lighten my load some. I think it will be nice to just take a breather and focus on my kids and church preschool. Pray that I will have the courage to say no when other opportunities arise. It's hard for me but this is the season I'm in and I need to live in it!!
