A blog for busy Moms

May 29, 2011

 Are you dizzy yet?  Do you feel like your life is spinning out of control at times?  Do you have a schedule that is so jammed packed and so complicated you are considering a personal secretary just to keep you on track?  Dear Mama, you are not alone.  Countless Mamas are caught in the whirlpool of over commitment.

Life, what is life?  I actually looked it up in the dictionary and what I found was quite interesting.  The first definition is this; the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body or inanimate matter. Hmmm, I’m not quite sure my life fits that definition.  Quite often I feel that I am merely an extension of my steering wheel, thus, inanimate matter.  Vital and functioning? Once again, I’m not quite sure my life of running here and there qualifies as vital and functioning.

Life was also defined as a sentence of imprisonment for the remainder of a person’s life.  Now that sounds more familiar.  Dear Mama I am merely jesting to make a point.  We are too busy and the life we are living may not be true life.

Dear Mama, somewhere along the line we started doing far more things for our children than we do with our children.  Join me on a journey of re-evaluation.  It is time to spend a little more time at home with our children.  I will offer what encouragement I can and I will offer suggestions and creative ideas.  “So join me here each week my friends, you’re sure to get a smile.”
