April in Review 2017

Again, how is it already May?? It seems like I blinked and April was gone! Unfortunately, I’m thinking May will be very similar. You know how it is…concerts, contests, graduations, tests, last days of school…add in to that people coming home from college, baby showers, wedding showers, and more things I’m sure I’m forgetting (which, btw, is my biggest fear – forgetting something 😳 – maybe because it’s happened), and well, the month will soon be over. I pray that I can fully enjoy every minute of every day! So today I’d like to look back and see what we really got accomplished here @frazzledjoy in the month of April.

Life Lately and a Reset

Hey there friends!! {tap, tap} is this thing on??? I totally didn’t intend on taking time off, but I did. And it was good. Sometimes we don’t know we need a reset until we take one.

And while I know it was the right thing to do – mostly because I was tired of talking about it and thinking about it – pushing “open shop” and telling everyone about it was extremely stressful and nerve wracking for this little introvert. So, I decided to go visit my mom for a couple of days, because, again I have been telling her for a while that I would!

We’ve Come a Long Way Baby

Hey friends! As I was sifting through old photographs, looking for pics of my kids when they were little, I came across some pics of our house on move in day. Wow. I remember when we moved in. I was 7 months pregnant = huge, with a 5 year old and a 3 year old in tow. We were adding around 500 sq ft of space for our family with this home, as well as adding a lot of other features our old house didn’t have. Even though a lot of the dĂ©cor wasn’t to our liking I certainly remember thinking “it’s nice enough that I can live with it for a time”.

The Easter Challenge

Blessed Good Friday to you friends! As I sat in church this past Sunday – Palm Sunday. God laid a few words on my heart. Words I knew He wanted me to share. As a writer sometimes that can be a little intimidating. But, I know God is working for good. So, here goes! As you read, I hope you are challenged like I was.
