Life Gets In The Way

Tonight I was feeling a little frustrated that I can't seem to get much crafting done. Today I managed to make only two cards between feeding, bathing, diapering, and catering to two kids and dealing with two different bedtimes and being a temporary single mom. My youngest is getting in two very nasty second molars and being very clingy with Pappa gone. He's also likely to either not sleep through the night or wake up at 5:30am ready to start his day. I was so focused on getting those silly cards done that every little thing that distracted me was extremely aggitating and I had to work really hard at not snapping at the boys. Now that the house is calm I'm realizing life isn't getting in the way, but I often get in the way of enjoying my life. Besides, I wouldn't want any other life getting in the way of my crafting than the one I have now!

Love the pic of the family! Sometimes I get agitated that my job gets in the way of life, but perhaps that is life *sigh*

Love the family pic! I know mine just have feathers, but trust me, it's not much different. I'm always peeling someone off of something or rescuing the other from an evil toy. AsaMina tried to protect me from an evil pencil yesterday and then needed rescuing herself. And then there is hubby..... Yeah all that is life and without it there wouldn't be 'life'. Just go close yourself in a closet for 5 minutes with a chocolate bar. It works wonders :-)

I'm praying for you Sis. I know it is tough without him around to help and support. Give me a call if you need me. I leave you with these words of encouragement.

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Love you Sis!
