It isn't for me to ask why things happen in my life. I know, it is a statement that some people just have to ask but I try very hard to stay away from. If I allow myself to go their sometimes it is easy for me to get caught up in it. I find myself wallowing in self pity and that doesn't make it all better. I don't want others to feel sorry for me and bringing that kind of attention to myself isn't what I want.

I however have been reflecting over the past 9 months and I just wish I could take some of it away. The BIGGEST thing that I KNOW is through all of this stuff......some I have shared here.....He is HIGHER!! Nothing else matters, the good, the bad and even the ugly. He knows what HE is doing........I don't need to worry He has my bases covered and He is taking care of me for, forever and always. Please take time today to listen to this from Hillsong, it may just change your life.

I have the awesome privilege to take Wilna's class. What a wonderful group of women I'm getting acquainted with from all over the world. There are 100 of us! I don't know what would happen if we all chatted at the same time though, scary

Well back to balancing I go, regular chores, shower, and sorting a pile of patterned paper mess. Then I will KNOW where it all is instead of being in 5 different places.

That is what seems to be happening around here! A whirlwind of happenings, we had out of town guests over the weekend. So much fun!! No agenda other than to just relax, enjoy each others company, play a few board games, and hit the Spokane's Pig Out in the Park. They city takes Riverfront park and divides it into sections, adding food booths and stages for music. I tell you what, going with a group of people is the way to go. You end up spending less on
food when you all are sharing what you buy!! The kids road the Carousel which they haven't done since we visited Spokane 4 years ago. I need to take them again before they close it down for the season, next year they will celebrate 100 years......amazing!! If you like Carousels their site is full of fun information and coloring pages.

The kids are back at school and adjusting to getting up early. Tonight we will be going to our first football game of the season, not because we enjoy football but because Ethen will be marching. It should be a good game as it is with the rival teams of the Mead district. I'm sure there will be a lot of energy!

I'm getting back into my mom routine and finding balance, it is so nice. The only thing I haven't been able to get back to, is my scrap booking. I've felt the pull to do things for months but other stuff has come first. I have plans to take a online class with Wilna, which I have done before and enjoyed so much. If you get a chance, go check it out and take her new class she will be offering soon. The information she gives is worth every penny.

Here's to routine, balance, fun and just living in the moment.
