I have composed so many blog posts over the last few weeks... only thing is they never made it from my head to my keyboard and into the blog. My life feels like I am a hamster on a wheel. From parenting to mothering to schooling to housekeeping to ministry, there is no time for much else. I end my day exhausted, and lately frustrated at so many unfinished tasks. One of these is blogging. I blog because I want a record of our life... I blog to get things out of my head... I blog to encourage someone else who might be in a similar space in life... I blog to keep my family informed... BUT every time I find a minute to blog I feel like there are so many other things I could be/ should be doing.. like laundry or dishes or lesson prep or playing with the kids or spending time with my husband or exercising... which are all very important. So thus the blog posts remain in my head... and then I get then I sit down to blog... and then I feel guilty... so then I get up to do something else... well you get the picture... I have to find balance... so for a little bit this space will remain blank until I have peace about where this blog will fit into my life. By choosing to set it aside for a moment I am giving myself a break from feeling like it is an unfinished task. I will return... soon... until then just know life is going on full steam ahead in Island Mama's world!!
