So in about 10 days the 30 day challenge will be over. I started this blog with the intention of tracking my progress and giving my self somewhere to vent and express my thoughts. Now, I am no way shape or form done with the No Yelling Challenge. To be quite honest, I think it will always be a work in progress.
But what does that mean for this blog?
I have been thinking and praying about what God wants me to do with this blog. To be quite honest I STILL DON’T KNOW! But, here is what I do know….
- I like writing. It gives me time during the day to collect my thoughts. It also helps me process things when I can write them out.
- My husband is about to return home from Deployment #4. This will bring a whole new list of adjustments, and changes. Something tells me I am not the only one out there who has to adjust to there loved one coming home. I could write a whole blog on this alone!
- My life is changing this school year. All of my kids will be in school full or part time. I will have 12 hours a week alone with no one at home. Oh my goodness this is overwhelming and exciting at the same time!
- Life in general with 6 kids, a husband in the military, and each day is always exciting, new, and never a dull moment.
So, here is my plan for this blog. I am just going to be me. I am going to write on what is going on in my life with the hope that it may help someone else. Maybe with God’s help I can be an encouragement to someone going thru a deployment for the first time. Maybe my crazy type A schedules and lists will help motivate a mom trying to balance it all. I don’t know but I am willing to find out where this paths leads.
What you can count on is that I am a real mom of six, married to an Army guy whom I love more now then when we first got married. I am not perfect but have been given a lot of Grace along the way!
