Just aching to write...


but there's just been so many thoughts in my head!! Don't worry. I haven't completely forgotten myself. I do journal daily - it's just not here. Part of the problem is that I've had some trouble with my personal laptop. Hopefully, that'll get taken care of soon...
We made it through our first full week of school. Everybody has been doing great. Little Marco is even on a schedule there and he loves it.
We all took turns with a 24 hour flu bug, but it wasn't too bad. Anyone that knows me knows that I don't get sick very often. I just don't have time for that. lol
I've really enjoyed being in the classroom again. I am definitely in my element. I know that my children are enjoying school and they are all in very trusted hands not very far from my own classroom.
Our church has been at our new location for going on 1 month tomorrow, but it's funny - it feels like we've been there so much longer! Our congregation is growing and the people there are all working and worshipping in unity. One of the areas that is really booming is our Youth Group. The teens and young college age kids are so happy to be there and they love being a part of everything. It's very inspiring.
I've also finally got myself to a place where I am really making progress with some goals in my life.
I am really focusing my family and those around me. I recently read a blog post by my friend Denise. She talked about Feeling Loved and about helping others to feel loved.
I love doing things for others - I really do - but sometimes, I think I get caught up on worrying if it's enough or good enough or whatever and it holds me back from doing what was originally in my heart to do. I have missed many a birthday gift opportunity or just a plain old "random act of kindness" because I feel like I better add more to it or I second-guess my choice of way to show someone love.
What's up with that insecurity??
Anyway, today as I write this I am making a mental note of the different people I need to send a note to or buy a coffee for...
I've also missed all of my faithful readers here. I know it's my fault for being so sporatic, so one of my other goals is to really stay on top of my blog. I do love being here. It's very comforting to me to write and think.
I haven't been shooting pictures lately either. That'll pick up as we all settle into our schedules and I am more aware of my daily routine.
We've got a big day planned at church tomorrow and then Monday is Labor Day. Marco actually has the day off! We will probably just lay around with our bellies up in the air all day - but who knows? You'll have to check back and see. =] Hugs to you all!!

I love reading your blog. It makes me feel like I am still nearby. I love being able to rejoice in the blessings and the daily journey's that you write about. I miss you all and wish I could just drop in once in a while. Who knows what tomorrow holds...right?

i've missed reading your blog. I feel like life has been so busy that we've been out of touch, and I like knowing what's going on in your life. Miss you

Hi!! Enjoyed catching up with you and your family happenings. Don't worry about us - we'll be here whenever you decide to write.

Enjoyed your comment as well as stopping in. Is this your actual school desk? If so, I'm not sure where you are located. Perhaps the Mission Field? Lovingly, Yolanda

No, not my desk at all. =] My desk is very modern, but I'd love for it to look like this one for sure. ;]
