Well, this isn't supposed to be a post full of whining complaints. I am willing myself to renew my commitment to this blog project I decided to undertake just under a year ago. I so enjoy sharing my experiences as a wife and mother with my friends and family and whoever else may wander across my path. I love the feedback and comments that I get that remind me that I am not alone on this journey. There are women everywhere who can relate to their child taking a spill and kissing pavement.

Every once in a while, it is also fun to be able to share our little "Pinterest Worthy" accomplishments. If you are anything like me, the successes are few and far between!
I realize that when I allow myself to be dragged down by circumstances that I cannot control, like a relentless Wisconsin winter, I miss out on sharing the fun little moments that bring the sunshine into the gloom. For instance, a later Easter this year meant we didn't have to chisel the little plastic eggs out of snow and ice!

It is time I recommit to taking more time for reflection. Sometimes I need to be still for a moment so I can truly appreciate the many blessings around me. Other times I need to autopsy a situation so I can find the lesson that God wants me to learn so I can be a better mother, wife, friend, fill in the blank. I have found this blog so helpful in accomplishing this goal. It is fun to go back and read what I have written before and have a chuckle or shake my head over what I must have been thinking or find a renewed sense of thankfulness as I remember the fun moments and blessings that have filled my life.
So here's to a new year (only four months late)! Can't wait to see what happens and I look forward to sharing it with you. Until next time, make it a great life!
