The Busy Mom Balancing Act
What do people gain from all their labor at which they toil under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again. All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again.
That is a section from the book Ecclesiastes, a personal favorite of mine. The book is full of so much truth that seemingly everyone can relate to.
I personally feel that all moms can relate to the part about what has been done will be done again. Dishes anyone? Laundry? There really is so much for moms to do and the list never seems to end.
That’s part of why I’m writing to you today. My goal for this site is that it updates daily. However, this site does not stand alone on it’s on. With this site comes a collection of social media sites that must also be updated (I’m sure other bloggers can relate with me on this one).
Additionally, this site is not the only one that I work with. You may be aware by now that I also write for FrugalMommas which is a fantastic resource for moms who are trying to save a little extra cash or learn different ways of providing for their families.
What you may not know by now, is that there is yet another site. One that I have been working with long before bPatty was even a thought in the back of my mind. This is the site that started it all, the site I started working with long before I was even married. It’s also the most complex of all the sites I work with. I don’t discuss it much with you because I don’t want it to appear as if I’m tapping myself on the back, I’m truly not. You see, this site is a non profit, a church. A ministry.
Why I’m Telling This To You Now
It came to my attention that by not letting you know about this site I am also keeping you from knowing about an amazing source of inspiration. You can see what I mean here. The site is full of motivational scriptures as well as videos and free music and it can all be found on Pinterest. TheSpringsWorship.com is designed to encourage your spiritual growth as well as witness to those who don’t know Christ as their Savior.
This Post Ins’t About Promotion
This post isn’t really about promotion though, it’s titled the busy mom balancing act for a reason. You see, I struggle with finding a balance like so many other people out there do. I wish I could offer great bits of fix all solutions, but I can’t. I don’t believe that they exist. Finding a balance with all that life sends our way can be challenging. It truly can. There are so many things that you just can’t plan for, like when my daughter colors all over my walls. Seriously, where did she even find those crayons?
The point is, that like so many of you, there is a lot on my plate. There may be days where I don’t publish something on this site, please don’t think I’ve walked away and please don’t forget that I’m a human and not a robot. When you see something on here it means that I’ve taken time away from my family or from one of the other sites to write to you on this site.
What You Can Do
If you do log in one morning and see that something hasn’t been posted on here, feel free to drop by one of the other websites and see if I’ve posted something on one of those. I’ll leave links to them below.
Be supportive. Seriously, comments and interaction is a lot of what keeps bloggers encouraged and reading all of the comments that ya’ll send me never ceases to amaze me. I love them! They immediately light up my face every time.
Let me know how I can help you. It may be a case of you think something should be on this site but you can’t seem to find it. Let me know, I’ve had some of ya’ll ask for dinner recipes and I didn’t notice but apparently I’m great at posting desserts but not much dinner. So guess what, tomorrow a dinner recipe is going up.
