10 days left Where do I go from here?

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….

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
