My friends....and their crafts!

How cute in the world is this stuff?!

I mean, I have some crafty friends!

My friend, Katie, has made these super cute necklaces for etsy.
My friend, Susie, has been busy making ABC albums for her daughter's ENTIRE class!
My friend, Virginia, takes a yard sale find, and turns it into treasure!
My friend, Jennifer.......well, she helped me see a wagon......in a new light....maybe I can make my little sign soon!

I have some great friends! They rub off on me!

Just a reminder......it IS worth it!

When I am in the middle of my woes.......burning the candle at both ends, running to and fro, doing more things than I can possibly juggle, and at the end of the day, being so crazy exhausted....here comes Mother's Day.

I think of the people who don't have their children with them on Mother's Day. I think of my sweet little Elijah, and how different life might be with *3* boys! I think of the women who have not yet had the blessing of feeling the way I felt those days, when I heard there cries for the very first time.
Yes, it is worth it! Every tiring second. Every bad day. Every good one. Every smile. Every "thank you". Every text message, saying "mom, I did it!" Every thumbs up from first base. Every snuggle on the couch. Every "i love you" mumbled very quietly as he hops out of the car at junior high. Every kiss on the cheek! Every single thing.
It makes it all worth it! T
And, I have said it, and will say it again, I am NOT just a stay at home mom! I AM a stay at home mom. On purpose! And, I thank God for it! And my boys. Any my hubby who is willingly sacrificing so that I can be!
I don't think it is any coincidence that this holiday falls in Mid-May.......in the midst of end-of-the-year parties, field trips, academic banquets, make-up rained-out ballgames, tournaments, choir performances!
Thank God.......for Mother's Day!

All things to all people

Ok, so here's a blog post with no photos! That's a rare deal for me....but ya know!

So, wow, it has been a few busy weeks in the past, and I think that I am really full of being all things to all people. Now, let me say: each and everything is fantastic for the most part, but man, I am one tired girl.

Scrap ETC event. Wow, what a time.
Saving Private Parts. Raising lots of $$$
Mayfield. Doing a little Ice Cream PR
Wife. Oh yeah. That.
Mom of the boys. Tennis. Baseball. Choir. Drama. Media Ministry at church. and schoo. Yikes.
Family. we have had a few loved ones go on to be with Jesus in the last few months. That is hard too.
Friend. Yes, trying to keep up. Hang out with my peeps. Starbucks with Susie. Dinner with friends. Grilled Cheese's on Sundays.
Running. Oh. Wow. Another Marathon. What was I thinking!

Yes, tired. Recovering. Back at it. Needing to focus a little more on the boys school, for these last few days.
