Truth Is.....





It's the hardest thing for me lately...getting dressed, connecting with my busy pre-teen photographer to take photos, making old looks fresh and new again(remixing my closet) and just plain sharing with you all here.  I have been running from here to there and back again and I am breathless!!  There are so many wonderful events going on right now in our household and some sad events happening in my own family as well.  Life has been a myriad of emotions around here lately.  Oh, don't go there, as I count it all joy as the bible instructs me to according to James 1: 1-5, yet, real life still happens.  It's been a whirlwind of comings and goings.  From band concerts and clinics, to soccer tournaments, lacrosse games, band trips to Disney World, Florida, to practice here and there and everywhere.  12th birthday celebrations and fun, sleep overs, play dates, big tests and projects due, and report cards too!! I'm in 8th grade for the second time, 6th for the 3rd and 2nd for the 4th!! It's funny to think about it like that, but that's how it feels.  I have managed to crawl back to bed a time or two giving in to my body before it shuts down on me.  You know all those nasty bugs going around have a way of attacking you when you are weak.  Have you all been experiencing the "bugs" in your communities and schools?  

I hope to return with the regular scheduled programming at some point, but for now I will carry on and continue reading your blogs.  You all have some wonderful ideas and things happening and I am so glad for you!  Enjoy and Happy Spring (I think it's here to stay)??!!

  3. I know all about that. I wonder how I blog amongst all I have going on. Funny you say lacrosse, I just looked into a local fall league for my son. Registration hasn't started but I am going to let him have a go at it. I played as a child and teenager and would like to expose them to a sport that isn't so mainstream!

    We have had bugs come around here this cold and flu season. Thank you Lord for sunshine and warmer days outside!

    1. I know it...thanks for the support! My kids love Lax and my oldest has decided it is her sport. While my son is good at it, he is playing Soccer at the moment. I am sure your son will love it too.

  5. Hang in there sweet Shon. I'm guessing you will look back on this time someday in the future and these busy days will be a treasure. I'm not a mom, but I do remember these days as a child with my mom and I remember her doing so much for me. I'm looking forward to your next post when you can!

  6. sometimes you just need to step away and unplug ... even if just for a few (and for your own sanity!) yes, the blogging world continues on even when we do not post, but the nice thing is, you can always come back to it whenever you can. enjoy this time (as crazy as it may be) and i hope all is well. x
