I'm a fickle blogger, a bit indecisive and inconsistent. I've changed my name back to what I originally started with. It's the name I most identify with and I love it.
I had changed it because I started to think that it made me sound like I was working with drudgery and that I coveted the name SAH mom. And that is not the case at all. I absolutely LOVE my job. I love the education that my kids are getting. I love the time that I get to spend with other grown-ups and all the other stuff that goes along with my having a career. I am TRULY blessed to be doing what I am doing where I am doing it. Nevertheless, as my blog name suggests, my heart and my priorities lie here in my home with my family. I may not do both perfectly, but who does. I give both all I have and God's grace fills in the gaps.
School is in full swing around here and I absolutely adore my students this year. I prayed for a week before school started that God would help me to love these kids the way He does. That I could see them the way their parents see them. And I have already fallen in love with them. I've prayed with them, I've laughed with them, there have even been a couple that I've wanted to cry with. I'm just so grateful for them. And I'm so, so thankful that God hears my prayers.
My kids are doing great in school. Alyssa is still adjusting to middle school, more studying, less spoon-feeding. What I really mean is I'm still adjusting. Geez, middle school is a whole new world. Although, I'm struggling more than my little social butterfly is. She just flutters around without a care in the world. Anyone who knows me knows that isn't how I roll. And quite frankly, I've never understood people who are like this. *sigh* She's got so much of her daddy in her.
Have a blessed evening friends!
