Life is a real challenge for me right now - going back to work after having my daughter, who I adore but who is not exactly easy going, dealing with the fact that I feel like I am dragged in hundreds of directions each day... wife, mother, teacher, homemaker (that one feels like it is really faltering right now), human being, individual, friend, daughter, Christian... it's pretty overwhelming. As a consumate type-A personality, I am feeling like I am at a stage in which I have a lot of lessons to learn and I don't feel particularly interested in learning right now - I would much rather curl up with a good book. This past year, I have done lots of praying, asking God to show me what the lesson is that I need to learn right now and to help me to learn it quickly... sadly, I think that lesson might be patience and learning it quickly would go against the lesson itself. The worst part is that I am seeing my own traits coming out in my daughter already - I really need to learn these lessons if I am going to teach her well.
I am looking forward to blogging as an outlet for creativity and a chance to connect. Thanks for reading!
