If you were to go back and read some of my old posts from this past year (2013) you will find that I worked too much and kept on saying I wanted to 'be a better mom' or 'wished to focus on my family more'. Well, this year I decide not to say that! Instead I'm just going to do what I said I would.
I've got an even busier schedule this year as my career grows. I am LOVING all the work I've been getting and doing. Of course the more I have the less my family gets, but I've made that decision to just still make them my number one.
Yesterday instead of doing 'work' or cleaning the studio I went on a little nature adventure with my boys. I found a nature scavenger hunt printout that my son could do and wouldn't get bored with. With his camera & magnifying glass we were off for a family walk. It was really beautiful to have spent that time with them. Made me wish for the warmer summer days. The walk wasn't too long, but we had a lot of fun learning along the way!
One of my decisions this year is not to worry about work or the amount I have, but instead just spend time with my son and let God take care of the rest. It's been a beautiful mind shift, one that helps me take the focus of the 'doing' and give that part to God while I do the things that really matter to Him like building up my family and loving on them.
