Have you ever felt like you were drowning without even being in water? Just going through the day your mind is flooded with lists and plans and must-do’s and should-do’s and don’t-do’s? Eventually making it hard to even breathe?
That is me right now. Along with a perfect (in my eyes) little baby girl who now lives at our house and is making me completely surrender (no wonder that’s my One Word this year) every ounce of my being.
To make some of the water in my brain recede I took a little Facebook fast which started last Sunday. Wow! You don’t realize how uncluttered life suddenly becomes when you get out of Facebook land. I can breathe a little easier for sure.
I’ve also taken a little break from writing here at Triple Braided. It hasn’t been easy but necessary at this stage of life I’m in at the moment. I hope it’s not an extended break or a permanent break, but I am trying really hard to be quiet so that I can hear what God wants from me right now and surrender that to Him.
What has filled the time I write here, besides feedings and rocking and diapers, is a new blog I’m going to launch in the hopefully soon future. I’ve been working hard to get it ready. It’s a leap of faith after the idea being planted in my head for months without budging. Here’s a sneak peak. I can’t tell you when it will launch for sure. I want it “done right” this time. If you’re a blogger you know what I mean. You learned all the “right ways” to start blogging after you’d been doing it for two years. Not this time!
Ms. Melanie, my like-minded southern friend from Only and Breath and Elegant Custom Blogs, designed the header. I love it! If you’re looking for someone to design something for you, be sure to stop by her place. She’s wonderful to work with and an all around wonderful person!
Also, today Rebekah Snyder, author of Beyond Waiting: Redefining the Purpose of Singleness and the writer at BeyondWaiting.com posted a book review of my eBook Fall for Him. I would love for you to visit her there and read what she has to say. If you haven’t bought your copy yet for either yourself or a single friend it’s $4.99 at Amazon. I’d love your review on it, too, if you’d like to leave one. You can do that at Amazon.
Thank you for reading through my going-ons around here. If you have a moment and think about it, I would love your prayers for this new season of motherhood I’m in. It’s hard. No longer am I the childless woman in the restaurant who wonders why all of you seasoned moms can’t control your babies. I can’t even get mine to sleep. I now get it and am deeply humbled. All of you moms are amazing. I have so much to learn.
I’ll be back soonish. Have a great weekend!
