Blog Your Heart-A Challenge

I came across a sweet blog called Just Me, My Soldier, and Our 4 Little Chicks while reading Ali Edwards blog.  She wrote a post called Blog Your Heart, A Challenge. She is challenging her readers to blog about whatever happens to be in their heart at the time. I think that sounds like an amazing idea, so here is my entry.

What's in my heart:

My heart is filled with so much love for my beautiful babies.  Hudson is turning into such a well behaved (for a 2-year-old) little boy and Harper is such a sweet, happy little baby.  They make our family whole and fill our home with happiness.

My worries for the past 8 months have been put to rest because my husband finally got a job today!  The company he worked for closed unexpectedly in February and he's been looking for a new one since. He has been working hard on a website he and his partners are launching here in Omaha soon, so I guess that was the reason that he didn't find a job right away, so that he would have the time to finish and launch the website.  However, times were hard. Things got tense.  We gave up a lot and had a new baby right in the middle of it all. But it doesn't matter now.  Now I can finally relax and know that we'll be okay...I can breathe again.

I need a little more "me" time. I feel like mom's aren't supposed to admit that they can't do it all and stay sane, but I'll admit it.  Being a stay-at-home mom is hard...so hard.  Rewarding, but hard.  Not to mention the fact that none of my friends stay at home with their kids.  My sister does, but she lives in a different city. My best friend does, but she also lives in a different city.  Bummer.  I just need to make sure that I take the time I need in order to be the best mom and wife I can be.

I also need to be sure to make time for my husband. So often the kids get all my energy and attention during the day that by the time my husband gets home, I don't have anything left. That's not fair to him. Plus, I miss our time together.

Well, that's all that's in my heart and my thoughts at the moment. I would love to hear from anyone who would like to partake in the challenge.  It's nice to know that there are others who can relate and understand the hardships and find the same joy in the simple things!

  2. I feel many of these same things on a regular basis too...its ok to take time for yourself sometimes, I struggled with that for a long time to, but I found that when I did, even if it was just running to the store by myself, I came home refreshed and a better mom. So glad things are looking up for you and your family. Hope you all have a blessed weekend!
