Well hello again, long time no see!

So about ten months ago, give or take, my pregnant self was enamored with the idea of creating a fantastic and helpful blog for families. In my mind it was going to be of the "Top 100 of 2012" with glowing reviews and poetic flow. Reality is that I am a bit of a procrastinator. Grand ideas fill this mind of mine and I get giddy inside like a child at Christmas, but then real life knocks on my door and says, "Umm...there are dishes in the sink and err when is the last time you scrubbed the toilet" So, deflated, I return my attention to real life and my great aspirations of reaching millions with the written word are drowned with bleach and toilet scrubbers.

Now, all this may sound familiar because I know for a fact I am not the only one with dreams and desires that gets sidetracked along the way. And I love the life that God has chosen for me and blessed me with, dirty toilets and all. I also know, however, that the same God who has given me toilets to clean and dishes to put away has also given me a desire to express myself through writing. When it gets right down to it, the goal isn't to reach millions...the goal is to find a moment to use the desire God has placed in me to do something, and let Him take care of the rest.

So what are your dreams? Desires? Great aspirations? Do you think God placed them there? If he did, then what are you going to do about it? I, for one, am going to try to fit in a little time each week (each day might be a bit lofty for this season of life) to immerse my creative self in doing that which I find joy. So here's to hoping that the next blog post is not another ten months from now...and here's to hoping that you begin or continue taking a little time to do likewise.

  1. I'm the same way! I get an idea and it grows making me really excited, but then life gets in the way. But I see nothing wrong with dreaming big. I think when you stop dreaming is when there is a problem. :)

  2. If you desire to write a blog and impact people through it then you definitely should! That was a dream I had and it's definitely taken off. :-) Let me know if you need any pointers. <3


I would love to hear from you!
