my disclaimer...

Since starting this blog a few days ago, my thoughts throughout the day seem to always be targeted toward it... "Should I blog about this?" "That would be a good topic." "I should totally write about that!" I think of so many things to share, but not only is the time to do so limited, I also wonder... would anyone care or be interested??

Those were the two reasons I never thought blogging was for me. Lack of time and interesting material. We live a simple life, but in that simplicity there is humor, unusual experiences and some moments that we all can relate to and I love envisioning someone out there saying as they read my post "Yes, I totally know what she means!" I appreciate knowing I'm not alone in this thing we call 'motherhood'. Because EVERY mother has experienced this...

... I look at this picture and think, "Oh, Cooper. I feel that way too a lot of the time..." right??

Anyway, as I'm getting my feet wet in the blogging world, I feel like I need to just say this FIRST...

I LOVE my kids. But I have no doubt that there will be entries that have you wondering if that love is conditional... its not. AND, I am SO thankful for all of my blessings. I always hear myself following my complaints with "at least you have a (fill in the blank) to be frustrated with." For example, this morning I was trying to get a fire going in our furnace and had to restart it 3 times. By that point I was irritated, but reminded myself that, at least we HAVE a heat source, let alone a HOUSE to heat!

You may also find yourself saying "Well, that wasn't a very Christian thing for her to say (do)." I know. I find myself saying that sometimes, too. And in those moments I repent and try to shape up. You can hold me accountable.

So, bare with me. I may voice frustration, but know this... 1) I know it could be A LOT worse and that EVERYONE has gone through much of what I am. And they lived to tell about it. 2) I know the Lord's blessings are to be appreciated (even when one of those blessings pees on the floor... twice in one day!) 3) Most of the time when I share things it is either to gain perspective, remember the story, or make you feel like your day was pretty good compared to mine. Just kidding.

That is my disclaimer.
