I was blog hopping this morning. I was feeling a little restless. A little heavy. And definitly a LOT unmotivated. I was dwelling on the fact that I am at the store, and not with Miles. I think about the time I am NOT spending with my husband. I was angry because I sat down at 9:15 last night and fell asleep when there was still lots to be done. Then I came across this paragraph on Lisa Slocombe's Blog and I fell in love. (Actually there was more than this paragraph that I enjoyed, but this was my favourite. Lisa had it all highlighted and colored and I thought I would do the same, taking the parts that I enjoyed the most and amplifying them. I hope you take something from this too. Thank you so much Lisa. Really, Thank You. Sometimes I loose sight of the Balance I strive for. This restored it.
Mothers Who Know Do Less: Mothers who know, do less. They permit less of what will not bear good fruit eternally. They allow less media in their homes, less distraction, less activity that draws their children away from their home. Mothers who know are willing to live on less and consume less of the world’s goods in order to spend more time with their children—more time eating together, more time working together, more time reading together, more time talking, laughing, singing, and exemplifying. These mothers choose carefully and do not try to choose it all.
