My path, I feel sometimes, is constantly changing. Oh, I make plans ...lots and lots of plans. I THINK LONG AND HARD... I have so many great ideas about how I will fit it all in a day and everyone will love all the fun stuff so much they won't mind some of that thing they call hard work! Plans feel rigid like a blueprint that must be built to code. I live with goals and the Lord as my compass so I may move with the current of life and not have insurmountable fears! I have thought about the schooling, the work, the fitness, the meals, the shopping, the saving, and at the end of all the planning I realize I have to throw caution to the wind a bit and GO with what works! I want to enjoy my day with my kids, I want to do the hard stuff, but do it with grace, and if THAT MEANS WALKING AWAY FROM THE CRAZY...I DO JUST THAT! I love that I have had some big crazy messes to clean up after a long day learning. I love that we have learned all day and not written anything down. I love that even on the worst days (losing my temper) I have taught forgiveness. I know I am learning so much right now at this stage of my life and like a good student I'm going to take notes!
