I may or I may not

I don’t know when it happened exactly, but my life got really busy.  I signed Keller up for a preschool a few months ago and that added four car trips to my week.  Then I began a photography class and a dog obedience class, which filled up two of my nights.  I also started going to therapy in Ogden each week.  And I signed up the kids (3 of them) for baseball.  I didn’t make all these changes at the same time, but boy they added up quick!

I’m working really hard on my dog’s behavior.

I’m working really hard on finding mental stability.

There are a million things I ought to be working on, but that just leads us back to mental stability….

How do you keep from getting overwhelmed?  I struggle with this each and every day.

    I’ve been trying to breath in deeper all day. I never realized how much I held my breathe!

    Checklist. One task at a time.

    Snippets of encouraging words from others in random conversations:
    a. A former neighbor and psychologist: technically parents have 18 years to teach a child but we forget that and seem to want to teach everything in a day.
    b. My dad: that’s why we have mortgages for specific years, you got a mortgage for 30 years and so what if it takes 30 years to make your home the way you want it.
    c. My mom: 5 minutes is 5 minutes–do something! Doesn’t matter what but if you don’t do something it’s 5 minutes lost in your day. (said to me after having Daradie and learning to adjust.)
    d. Scripture, “by small and simple things great things will come to pass…” it’s the little things that we all remember and are more grateful for–little lunch box notes, tuck ins at bedtime, quick family scripture study (no one said how long it has to be!), family ice cream runs, fire pits and marshmallows….
    e. I have a list of a few things that I know I’m good at and I reread those often.
