I have had to draw a lot of lines in the sand lately and it’s been really hard. Saying no, setting limits, making a stand….. and worrying a lot what people might think.
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year but I find the stress of finding the perfect gift often clouds the joy this season brings for people. We all want to be a great gift giver and be the one that gives the best present of all. This year I am reflecting on a wonderful gift I received this year and why it is so special.
Life with three kids.
It’s proving to be a little more hectic than I expected.
I need to download…..
While setting up a Pinterest account for this blog recently I realised just how many great reasons there are to love Pinterest. I am surprised sometimes by the number of people who don’t make use of it. Today I want to share with you some of my personal favourite pins and uses because there really is something for everyone here.
“You’re an IDIOT !”
The words hit deep and hard in the heart of my precious seven-year old.
I saw his pain and recognised it for what it was. This was one of those important moments in parenting. The kind you don’t want to stuff up. A pivotal learning opportunity… and I prayed I’d have the right words to say.
The words that bubbled out of my mouth ended up surprising even me! It was certainly a teachable moment … but what I wasn’t expecting was that the lesson was intended for me, and YOU too !
Life can take an unexpected turn at any time in any of our lives. The things we are focussing on and doing in this present moment in time, that seem so very important, can all come to a sudden halt.
Our perspective shifts.
Our priorities drastically change and survival mode sets in…..
That’s what happened to me recently and today I take some time to reflect on what has got me through.
