I'm Back!

My Kids & I by BC Magazine

It's been a really long time since I've updated this blog. I always kept giving the excuse that I was too busy with the kids, baking and decorating, and "everything else". But I've been reading about amazing women, many single women, juggling so many responsibilities yet still able to make the time to encourage other ladies (like me) by sharing their experiences.

I can hear my friend's voice bugging me, "You have time for what you make time for."

I want to make time for this. I want to make time not just to showcase my work but to use this blog to share my own journey. Who knows? Maybe other girls who find themselves in my position may get encouraged. If only one girl's life is changed for the better that would make this blog worth it already.

I know this because I'm always leaning on others like my parents, friends, and the advise of more experienced people (particularly in the area of parenting!) to find my way through many situations that cause me to get lost. No one dreams of becoming a single mom, and so no one really prepares to be one. Can anyone prepare for this? But I'm grateful that for every painful surprise is a surprise gift as well. It's only now I'm starting to see this. I've realized that I've taken so many things for granted and have lost them. But I'm learning now, learning how to be strong, to have faith, to trust God to protect and provide for me and my kids.

And learning to blog. That's the nice thing about blogging. If you make a mistake, you can go back and edit it. I wish life was more like that, but it's not. Oh well.
