Story

I took this picture while the girls were swimming one day. In the creek. EWW. I'm talking live fish, half dead fish, fish poop, all that stuff. I was like UGH, don't open your mouth! LOL. I'm such a spaz.

Story.

My story.
It's complicated, in some ways anyway.
But it's mine.
I mean when you boil it all down and plot it on the timeline of eternity it's not so complicated.
It is the story of -
Beginnings
Endings
Failures
Victories
Redemption
Forgiveness
Grace
Love
Struggle
Blessings
Chaotic Balance
Being a mama.
Just life.
But life... it isn't "just".
It's pretty stinking-
Awesome
Busy
Fun
Crazy
Went to dinner with a friend this week.
It was so perfect.
The timing, the place.
The company, expected and unexpected.
I just needed to get away.
I needed and craved adult conversation.
I needed to not be seen as just a mom.
Being a mom is a big part of my story.
But it's not the only part.
I have three kids.
(And Piece Of Me just popped into my head. Yes, Britney... Spears. Kinda fitting.)
I can't would never want to change that.
Being a SAHM in a city of PHD's and career driven people isn't easy though.
There's NOTHING wrong with being career driven.
NOTHING wrong with working parents.
Working moms.
Let's face it, some mom's are BETTER mom's because they are working.
Some mom's want to work, some mom's need to work.
But all mom's work. Even the SAHM's.
