claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
one thing at a time.
this is not a new concept
it is one that i would claim to live by
but i want to more wholly than i am
i’ve been in this blog world for nearly a year and i would say it has been a wonderful outlet, a therapeutic end to a day, and mostly a soul gripping collection of memories. many of you know my excitement to have these entries printed out as our family photo album/scrapbook…well, the book in honor of micah’s fifth year of life arrived…just photos this time…no text.
it is a wonderful collection, but not as great as i had hoped. the quality of pictures that i post on the blog aren’t as high quality as the original, which i can now tell in the book…the application i used is slow and quirky and not ideal…as i stumble through making another book i find myself wondering why i am doing it and then if i am not going to publish these blog entires in book form…why am i blogging at all????
well, yes…the wonderful, therapeutic element…the connection i get especially when you comment back and we share that little blog love…putting ourselves out there for you to see.
but this morning, a dear friend (thank you, wes) spoke on the notion of doing what is in front of us at the moment…one thing at a time…hmmmmmm…what would i do in the eve if i am not uploading and writing?
so i am going to cut back from nearly daily posting. i could do this casually, but i want to do it intentionally. i want to see what it feels like to blog less regularly…will i feel more free or will i miss it? and i felt like letting my peeps out there know.
oh, one thing at a time…
do what is in front of you right now…
dang, that means laundry
(thank god for the clothes we have),
wiping sticky jell-o off the floor
(thank god for enough money to buy more than the essentials),
emailing families and making a show and tell sign
(thank god for a job i love),
putting new sheets on the bed for the third time this week
(thank god for our children even though they pee in our bed).
