March Madness - Day 12

Adulting can be rewarding.....

But, sometimes, I miss being a kid!

Summers off.....
Weekends off.....
Two weeks off for Christmas.....
One week off in March or April.....
Random days off throughout the year.....

Yup, there are times I miss being a kid!

Lots of time to take breaks. A break from routine. A break from school. A break from homework. I break from peer pressure. A break from stress.

When do parents get a break?

We don't!

Oh, how I miss being a kid!

Sometimes I just want a break too.

Despite not getting a break, I am thankful that I am no longer a kid.

Being an adult has allowed me to see, feel, and experience so many more things.

Things that were both good and bad.

Things that helped to make me the person I am today.

As an adult, I have learned how to push through pain. I have learned how to fight against fear. I have learned how to stand firm on my faith.

After all, Jeremiah 29:11 reminds me, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

I realize that I may not get as many breaks as I'd like but there's a plan for for my consistency. There's a plan for my steadfastness. There's a plan for my tenacity.

When I hang in there, day in and day out, my future continues to look brighter and brighter.

I know breaks will come in due season.

What do you miss most about being a kid?

  1. Being a kids was just down right FUN! There were no bills, not responsibilities (Chores of course) but nothing but are riding bikes, playing basketball, or going to the beach. I miss most the summer vacations, it wasn't anything special just but I went to private school and had to wear a uniform so I just didn't have to wear a uniform for the entire summer.

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
