Thoughts for the Day!

I've had a few people over the last few days ask me why I decided to start a blog. My answer was, because I wanted to! As I think about it, though, it has been a great way for me to focus on what's important and to look at the bright moments of the day! It has allowed time for me to write my thoughts and have a few moments of peace! So far, I have loved every minute of it!!
Today was a bit of a crazy day! Up at 6:00, kids at the bus by 7:05 and I was sitting at my desk by 7:30. Work was fine and I was back home by 4:45. At about 4:20, I received a text message from Matt saying that Caleb was in tears and devastated! Caleb is obsessed right now with his DSI and his action replay. I guess his action replay broke, and he felt like the world had ended. I pulled into the driveway and consoled a sobbing 8 year old. I was getting out of my work stuff while trying to hug a crying child and telling him that everything would be fine. Gave dinner to the kids and then helped all three with their homework. Anna was supposed to have her semi-final game for soccer, but it was postponed until Friday. All of the kids have showered and are ready for another day! Whew! I still have a pile of laundry to do and floors to vaccuum, but thought I would take a bit of a break!
As I sat at my computer, I took a moment to breathe, and started to think. I looked at myself, and thought how the heck do some

moms do it?? My hair is pulled back into a ponytail, no makeup on, some old jeans and a pullover sweater. Definitely not gorgeous or made up! I sometimes see moms walking around dressed to the nines; their makeup perfect and not a hair out of place! I'm most definitely not a fancy person and I never wear makeup, but I would still like to know their secret. I like that I'm not scared to get dirty with my kids and I like that, most of the time, I'm quite content in my blue jeans but I still sometimes wonder how it's done? I guess for now, I'll just have to wonder!
