Mom Priorities

I feel so distant from my blog right now. It’s been over a month since my last post and I’ve missed writing. It’s hard at times to take a moment for myself and jot down my thoughts. With a husband, 3 kids, and now a dog, the time is few and far in between. There is homework, piano lessons, school activities, and so much more that requires my time.  Like I’ve said before, in my mind I can do it all, but in reality, time just won’t allow for it. Over time I had to get to the realization that I have to prioritize the important things in my life. The laundry can wait, at least temporarily. The entire floor doesn’t have to be mopped, I can do a section. I don’t have the energy to clean all four bathrooms, but I can tackle at least one. So, I’m learning to focus on the important things in my life, because my tomorrow is not promised, and I would like to make memories and not regrets. Life can be so cumbersome, but I refuse to throw what I’ve always wanted to the side…..family. So for me, my relationship with my Heavenly Father will ALWAYS be first. Without work, my marriage wouldn’t exist which causes a breakdown of my family. I have to work to generate income, but I believe in working smart and not hard. Although money makes the world go round, it’s not everything and I don’t have to be a millionaire.

These are my priorities, what’s your?
