In A Blink

As I sit at a table cluttered with bills I can't help but think about the past. I remember back to when I was a kid. All my needs were met, and always without asking. My family was just a normal, middle class family, but yet I never had to wonder where my food was going to come from. I never had to think about where I was going to sleep at night, nor did I have to worry about my clothes being clean to wear.

The thoughts that now invade my mind are thoughts that are different from when I was just a girl. Most are questions such as: "What will I fix my family tonight for dinner? How come, no matter how much laundry I do, there is still more? Did we get our electric bill yet- when is it due?" Even though my thoughts are completely different, they aren't negative. I still have the same "feelings" about life that I had when I was a child.

I like being outside. Food is yummy. I Love to sing.

Instead of playing house, I'm living it. It is so strange how life flies by in the blink of an eye.

Lord, help me to be the kind of homemaker that doesn't take any moment for granted. Help me not to be upset when the laundry and dishes pile up. Help me to make the most of my time with my son, and my husband, and my friends. Lord, fill me with your fruits. Thank you for this amazing life!
