Well I feel like I have finally joined the ranks of the 21st century, the online journal. Mostly I thought I would try this as a way to jot down my thoughts or share my fun adventures from my home of three children and a husband who farms.
As I think back on my life so far, a thought comes to mind; Wow! I’ve had a lot of different roles in my short life, I’ve done many things, and now I am really enjoying my role as mom, farmwife and friend. I’ve often told my husband I am a jack-of-all trades, able to tackle any role thrust upon me well, but what I really want in life is to find something I’m good at, really good at. Maybe this next chapter of my life as stay-at-home mom and Doula will be the key. Actually I really hope so, cause I am the happiest I’ve been in a long time. I’m taking it as a good sign.
Maybe I am finally doing what I’m suppose to be doing, and I want to document it. Maybe this is where I am suppose to be. A wonderful man once told me, “God has big plans for you”, and I am starting to realize that “big” has many meanings. It can be as simple as holding a crying baby, or making lunch for hungry toddlers, to bringing needed supplies to my hubby on the tractor, or as far as helping another women welcome her first born into the world. Yes God has big plans for me and right now it is to be the best mom and wife I can be, to be here in our home and live in the moment.
This all started for me last summer, when I realized I needed to make some changes to be happier. It was summed up by this quote I came across on FB one day….. If things aren’t adding up in your life, start subtracting.
And so begins my quest for a simpler life, but I know deep down, I’ll always be a Chameleon, ready to take on the next role or challenge in front of me. Thats who I am. It’s who I’ll always be, ready to help out and do what ever is needed, wherever I am.
