Quiet in the midst of chaos

I think we've finally recovered from all the visiting and driving of two Thanksgivings and one Christmas celebration last weekend.

Now this weekend is my husband's birthday.

Next weekend is Miriam's birthday.

The following weekend we're hosting my dad's whole side for Christmas.

The weekend after that is actually Christmas.

And the weekend after that I'll be struggling to stay awake 'til midnight. Maybe I'll just go to bed and set the alarm.

So yeah, it's a busy month. I'm trying hard to keep things simple and focused in the midst of BUY!BUY!BUY! all around me. Part of my effort to step back and enjoy this season will include a little blog break. I hate that I haven't been able to keep up with all of your blogs, and my own posting has become more of a chore than a joy. Most importantly, instead of putting out more words, I really want to make time for The Word.

So I wish you all a peaceful Advent and a very joyful Christmas. See you next year!


  1. Wow! You are super busy! I will miss your blogging, but understand the need for a break. We all need one now and then, and Advent is the perfect time. Happy Advent and Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Enjoy your break! I can't believe Miriam's one already!!

  3. I never seem to be able to plan my breaks! Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. Happy Moms realize that the days are long but the years short. It's not that they are impervious to stress, it's that they have learned to lower their expectations and be in the moment when things get difficult. When your toddler is puking all over the house, this is not the time to reorganize the hall closet. A sick day then turns into a time to create sweet memories of hours spent reading and cuddling on the couch.


Comments make my day! Thanks for joining the conversation!
