The White Rabbit and Patience

What was it the white rabbit said as he hurried past Alice? "I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" Lately I feel like I am just surviving my daily routine. I want to live in the here and now, but as you may know a "stay at home mom's" life is less than routine! My friend Erica sent a great blog on the subject...

I feel impatient with my lil' guys when they do something they shouldn't but then I realize I probably wasn't all that focused on them either, which is my job. UGGGGGHHHHH. So, my goal is to plan for them in a more purposeful way than I have in the past. It's about time, and I have been putting it off for to long.

The teacher in me is coming back to life~sort of. I want to start having themed weeks for my toddlers because it helps my creative side stay less random. It will also keep us busier and hopefully learning more. Maybe it will make me hungry for teaching older kids again-I hope!

Maybe it will give me back a minute in my day to sit down with God. Cheryl, a friend of mine has a signature at the end of every email she's sent me and it says "Finding time with God is finding time for me." This gives me perspective once again. Although, I daily feel like I'm running late in the I shoulda's or coulda's categories, spending time with my Creator, Abba, Lover of my soul always frees me up somehow. (Usually with my patience!)


  1. It's remarkable, and so comforting that taking time to be with God just makes everything fall in to place!
