Taking a break

Ahh it's been awhile since I blogged. Life is busy. Kids are growing and so is our family. Kids grow fast! With that in mind I have decided to take a break from social media (twitter•Facebook•Instagram) so that I can focus more. My relationships with my husband & my kids, relationships with friends. I wanna be an aware parent and in this ever socially open society we live in, I feel like real conversations are almost a lost art form. I don't spend a lot of time on those social sites but sometimes I find my self not really paying attention to what's going on around me.
I don't like it when I do that.
And we are moving to another rental in the next few weeks. Yay! There is an extra bedroom and a huge yard!!! It is a little more per month but if we need the room (and a we need a yard) then we can prioritize our finances to make it work. I think it's good when people are stretched beyond their comfort zone in any little way. It helps you focus on what is truly important. In this case a better home for our kids is our focus. We have been in a house that is extremely inefficient as far as heating and cooling goes. Plus a list of other issues that we have discussed with the owners and they seem unwilling to fix them as of now. We understand that that is their choice and are ever so thankful that we had the opportunity to live in this house in this area. Houses to rent are far and few between here. People don't move all to often here and it's a nice area. So we are happy to have found a house here that's a little bigger, more solid and cleaner. So thankful!!! Thank you Jesus!!! So kids & family & moving & my walk with God are reasons for my break away! I will embrace this season with joy and a thankful heart and rock this out with the grace of God.
Blessings to you friends!
