My Mind is Crowded

 Linking up today with...

I am a full time wife, mom, public school first grade teacher,  preschool Sunday School director, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, and friend. We are contemplating adoption, and we are getting ready to send Chandler to school for the first time next fall. That's not even mentioning all the personal things going on in my life right now.

Needless to say, my mind is very crowded. At any given time, there are at least a hundred different things floating around in my head, from meetings I have to attend, to lesson plans that need to be completed, to soccer practice, to meal planning for my family, to spending time with the ones I love. There are days when I simply cannot do it all.

Sometimes I just have to remind myself that it's okay if I don't have everything under control. It's okay if everything doesn't line up perfectly. That's not always easy.


  1. Even though I am not on Facebook I still like to keep up with your blog. Thank you for this one! I need it. Its been one of those weeks - thanks for reminding me its ok if everything is not perfect all the time. God bless you guys!

    1. Sabrina, I don't know how non-believers handle everything life throws at them!

  2. Oh, you are in good company! The expectation to have "everything under control" is so ridiculous, yet a difficult lie to hush. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Sometimes we forget that it really is not necessary to "do it all". I am so guilty of that. I spend so much time worrying about the journey, that I forget to enjoy it too. Thanks for you post.
