word for the day: focus
it is so difficult for me to just slow down enough to focus. my mind races a million miles an hour most days all day long. having 5 little ones to care after doesn't help the focus problem. i laughingly told my husband tonight after reading this silly prayer for my personality profile (enfp if you were curious) that i often interrupt even my own stories to go on a bunny trail and never end up saying what i wanted to say in the first place.
i want to write here... so many things are heavy on my heart that i want to share. good things. hard thing too. but by the end of the evening when the last two of the littles are finally asleep and the house is quiet i am too tired to put together two thoughts that make much sense.
the back to school thing hit me hard like a semi truck to the face.
oh how i need help figuring out a schedule that works for me or at least settling into the one i have right now! so much i want to do... so much i want to say... so many places i would like to be...
but as long as i am trying to run in every direction and juggle all the different balls at the same time, i don't often do anything very well. i usually end up telling you about the bunny that ran down that trail and don't ever get to the meat of what is really going on.
how i need the Lord to help me focus!
