I may have had a baby six weeks ago, but my life hasn’t really slowed down very much. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m busier than ever
Right now I have so many things I want to do! I have books to read for book clubs and reviews and for my own leisure. I have meal planning, couponing, and surveys to take, too. I have several great ideas for blog posts (that never seem to happen). I have a 5k I need to get in shape for by the end of the month, as I want to get my body back after baby. (In fact I just requested several work-out videos from the library today.) I also just want to spend so much time outside in the beautiful weather, letting my kids run and play, so thank goodness for playgroup and play dates. Oh, and then there’s always all the daily, normal life things to do too, like feeding children and doing laundry and vacuuming.
I am busy.
And I kinda like it.
Well, other than the fact I’m totally scattered-brained most of the time, though that’s just probably due to lack of sleep.
But, I like having things to work on. I feel like I’m improving myself and my family. I feel happy right now. In fact, very happy.
The thing is, I’m not working on all these different things because I think I’m better or less than others so I need to do more. I’m doing these things because I want to! I don’t care what other people are doing six-weeks postpartum. I just care about my life. And right now I feel better than ever. I feel empowered, motivated, energized. I feel great!
I so dearly love my family, and every day I realize how truly blessed I am to have my three children and a loving, doting husband. I feel heaven near as I look at my children and as they tell me things and make new connections. I feel heaven near as I feed baby Michael and he smiles at me. (Seriously, newborn are adorable!)
I feel like God is sustaining me in my goals and endeavors, and letting me somehow manage to find the time and energy to do all that is required of me and still have some for things that I want to do.
Life is truly a gift. And I thank God that he’s given me this life and this body.
May God bless you to feel so too.
