My sister gave me the idea to delete Facebook off my phone. Just to make things a bit quieter.
And I’m taking out boxes and boxes and boxes of craft stuff that has been packed away since my days in Colorado.
Replacing the playroom (with toys that are never played with) with a creative place for the kids and I to spend time together … and quieter than an ipad, a tv, an xbox.
And making time for friends … face to face for coffee and for girl time because I am finding texting is making me ‘talk’ more but feel less.
The other day I prayed out in the living room, right out in the open, head bowed and hands clasped, for a heart that isn’t so numb, a schedule that isn’t filled with busy-but-not-important things, and the common sense to re-prioritize things that are not working for me anymore.
I’m noticing the kids growing up overnight at a faster pace than ever before … and it feels awful.
And I’m thinking of going back to school next year because the kids will be in school all day, too.
And so things might become really busy. So right now needs NOT to be.
And so I am fighting for now.
