Busy - ness

I have been thinking lately - looking at older mother's with older kids, from elementary age to high school and even college. WOW - life just gets busier and busier. I don't want to get busy - but it just happens. I think now, I need to enjoy my days at home. I don't have anywhere to be a lot of days, and I can schedule my boys how I want, and can do housework throughout the day with no rush. I feel tired now, but how am I going to feel when I'm carting kids around everywhere and hardly home in a day to clean and get meals prepared. Plus the emotional pressures of letting your kids go, making their own decisions, and not being able to control every action they take. YIKES!!!

I was getting overwhelmed last night about upcoming life and what it will all entail. (I feel like having little kids some days is exhausting, but it's daunting to know that it kinda gets worse. I know I'm the best pessimist there is, ask my mom and my husband. Then I remembered . . .
Hey, what did my mom do
when I was the one
washing all the dishes?
or setting the table, or cleaning up dinner
or vacuuming or cleaning my own room?
So the moral of the story is this - life is what you want it to be. You are only as busy as you make yourself or you only feel as tired as your complaining about it. every one has 24 hrs in a day, and you do what you want to do, or have to do. Every stage has negative and positives and it's what you concentrate on that makes you who you are and how you are.
Enjoy life!!!!!!
Love God for what he's done to save you!
and love people!!! :)

(correct me if I'm wrong mother - but didn't i talk like this about college life, and going into married/motherhood. :))

I am not a bit surprised that you are talking about and even just thinking about the NEXT STAGE of your life. But, what a joy to read your comments on "enjoying life" and relish in the moments you have RIGHT NOW! I LOVE how you wrote about we all have 24 hours in the day and we should just use them as God leads and directs us - one of my pet peeves!!! I love how you are maturing and developing! I LOVE YOU!
