The Past Week

The past few weeks are a blur.
All good things, but just so much going on...at least it seems like a lot while taking 
care of two little ones.
Farmer's Market was a week and a half ago, and I shared a table with a couple of friends who sew super cute baby items, and I sold cupcakes, trying to get my little business out there!
It went really well, but was stressful getting everything ready, since you can't really bake too far ahead of time. We sell again this Saturday!

Lots of yard work and garden planning finished off that weekend, between the rain storms!
My grandparents drove all the way from TN and stopped here for the night, 
before we all headed to my parents house for the weekend to watch my sister graduate high school.
Such a fun weekend with family...so proud of my little sis, who got lots of awards and scholarships, 
plus SANG at her graduation. I just admire her for that...it makes me want to throw up just thinking about singing on a stage in front of hundreds of friends and family! She and two of her friends wrote the song they sang! Yup, I was a proud big sister:)

Yesterday I was sick, so today is catch up from being out of town and doing nothing yesterday
(although if I may brag on my hubby...he did laundry, dishes, and got us all unpacked for me since I wasn't feeling well)

I read this quote on facebook yesterday and loved it:

"I have always been complaining that my work was constantly interrupted, until I slowly discovered that my interruptions were my work." 
~Cynthia Heald~
(from the book 'Becoming a Woman of Simplicity')

I definitely fall into that category of moms who get annoyed sometimes because "I can't get anything done!!"
Yes, there are things that do have to get done, but when I think about this quote, it helps me see my priorities in their correct order. My kids aren't interruptions...they are my full time job, my number one priority during the day, and how unbelievably blessed I am to be living my childhood dream of raising kids at home!! 
What a slap in the face to God when I complain about not having time to do what I need/want to do, when He has given me abundantly more than I ever asked for!
Food for thought:)

Here are a few pictures of life the past week...
