Been neglecting all sorts of things around the house this week in an effort to get ready for women’s conference tomorrow. Doug has been out of town, bedtime has been late, laundry piles are high, dishes have sat overnight, and I forgot to make Eliza’s lunch this morning.The irony of dropping so many balls at home while trying to prepare a talk on motherhood has not eluded me. I am ready to have this over and clear some brain space for things (and little people) that need my attention.
It has, however, been a wonderful journey. I’ve learned a lot. Especially from Breanne Meline and Michelle Logan, the other two women I am speaking with.
And it was fun to put this slideshow together. A big thanks to Michelle, who jumped in to save the day when iMovie was giving me fits. It will run a few minutes before the session begins. Nothing showy or picture-perfect. We just wanted it to capture the spontaneous, crazy life of raising young children. As well as the joy, the happiness, and the love.
(sorry, video is no longer available)
If you have a few minutes to watch, maybe it will give you the feeling it gives me. One of enormous gratitude that I am a Mother.
The days are flying by too fast.
“We’ve got to hold on. Hold on to this love…”
