Life has thrown me a bit of a curve ball this week.
Somewhere in the midst of snuggling my two sick babies, I have found myself battling the same cold.
Ear aches, body aches, sneezing, coughing, runny nose icky cold that’s going around.
So we’ve been house bound for the last 8 days.
Which is a long time.
What’s been a struggle for me is that my big plans of sewing, scheduling out some blog posts and getting my house cleaned and organized have been kicked out the window.
I’m totally a type A personality and when I make a list, I get thrown off when I can’t check those things off as completed.
So I’ve had a thrown off week.
And in the midst of my thrown off week, my fabric is now stacked all over my dining room table. Most of it still needing to be cut.
Purge piles sit in corners of my home waiting to be dealt with.
And well, my blog is hanging on by a thread….hehe
And I am a work in progress…
I’m reminded that this must be how God must feel about me sometimes.
That maybe he too has a Type A personality and a “to do” list for my life.
I wonder how often I throw Him off with my inability to always stick to His plan for my life.
How often he feels like my life has unkept piles, garbage in my heart that needs cleaning, and a need for surrender to him.
I’m realizing that when He talked to me about Simplifying my life, He meant that if I didn’t do it, He would do it for me.
So this week, in the midst of my icky sickness, I’m slowing my life down and enjoying those hours of snuggles from my little ones.
Because before I know it, they’ll be all grown up.
And I don’t want to miss a moment of it.
PS. This week I decided to play around with a maxi dress with a shirt over it. Possibly a Boho Chic style? Maybe? What do you think? I’m still not 100% sure I like the look, but it sure was comfy.
