It's the summer. That means 3 kids, all day, all the time. A new thing for us. I'd love to write more,
but it's a miracle I have a moment to stop at all today amidst packing for our first vacation as a family of 5.

I'll just say this... these past few weeks have made me feel like I have never worked harder in my life. But in reality I have... I worked to save my life through my depression and that work started almost 4 years ago to the day. I'm not reminding myself of this to diminish the feelings I'm having now, but to bring empowerment that I am stronger then I have ever been.  Praises to God for all He has given me and gotten me through!

Going going all day long.
No time to sing my own song.
Little hands and little feet.
Guiding, teaching, keeping sweet.
Moments of pure joy and fear.
Moments of how did I get here.
Will I raise them up to love?
Will I raise them to know the one above?
Overwhelmed and always tired.
Fact is I'll never be fired.
Hearts so pure, so open, so true.
Little lips saying "I love you."
It is a season, a blip in time.
Slowly speeding... but it is mine.
