Updates From The Heart

It has been a while since I have posted anything, but I wanted you to know I am still here. 

Life has become crazy busy on this end. My job has me at work more than I am at home. 

My days are by far longer than my nights, but that is okay. 

I have been offered an opportunity to shift gears in my work environment and in the new school year I will become the new lead teacher of a two year old class at our school’s daycare.

This is exciting for me as I will have the opportunity to take 5 of the children I have been playing with for a long time now with me and will be able to teach them and play with them in my own class. 

This change makes me so very happy. 

So, as we close out one school year and just ride the summer waves until a new year, I am in the background planning and preparing for my new school year. 

How funny is it that the plans we think are ours, end up only being truly mapped out by God and His plans.

I had no idea when I started working where I do that this job would have ever lead me here to this wonderful opportunity. 

Has this happened to you in your own life? You discovered in your plans really weren’t yours in the end, but what they became was something more than you could have ever hoped for? 

With all of these changes in my life getting ready to take place, you may start to see a shift in my topic choices as I would love to share this new adventure with you, my faithful friends and followers. 

I will always tie my subject matter or topics back to the theme of this blog, but as my journey in life continues to take it’s twists and turns I would like to continue to write about them here as well. 

Maybe one day when I find the time, I will do a summary post about where I started when I began this blog and where I am today. 

It would be interesting to see how God has orchestrated every road I have wandered down and how those roads have lead me to the one I am on now. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and are able to close out the week tomorrow on a high note. 

Until I come back, know each and everyone who is still here with me are appreciated and that I am sending out hugs to all of you.

Giving Our Children Our Time

I spent the afternoon helping my daughter get ready for her preschoolers this week.

I did not have this help as I grew up, and because I didn’t, it is my intention to help her as long as I am able to do so.

She made some fall and Christmas play dough mats, pumpkins that the kids can put faces on, and this adorable little scarecrow to help with her story times.

This cute little scarecrow is by far my most favorite of what I helped her do today.

Between the two of us, we spend a lot of Sundays preparing for the new school week.

This week was no different. However, for me I offered my assistance to her instead.

Motherhood/parenthood doesn’t ever just stop because the kids grow older and I am thankful it doesn’t.

I am richly blessed to be a mom and to also be an active one as well.

Do you still help your kids with activities?

If you do, leave a comment below explaining what you do still.
