I really wanted the blog title "my life as a mom," but I saw it was already taken. I'm pretty sure it said since 2007, but the webpage was completely blank. I had to laugh. A blank blog about motherhood somehow seems accurate. It tells me the person that started the blog was probably busy being a mom and didn't have time to actually write in her blog.
Someday my blog might also be blank. If so, rest assured I am still fully submersed in motherhood. But until that day, I will take time through writing and photography to reflect on what I have learned in motherhood and how God speaks to me through this role.
When I have taken time to write and reflect, I see things a little clearer. I better see how Jesus is always near and speaks to us through seemingly insignifant, every day moments. How what we do and who we are daily, makes more of an impact than we realize. How the some of the most important things in life are disguised by looking ordinary. Then as I write it all down, I better remember. Brick-by-brick, moment-by-moment, my faith grows.
This space is also a place for me to be creative with my photography. And just for fun, I sometimes include our DIY home remodel projects. (My husband and I bought a home that we are flipping, always a bucket-list sort of thing for us.)
But most of all, I blog because it makes me happy. A happy mom makes a happy home.
There are a lot of fun mom blogs out there to follow, so if you choose to follow mine - know that I do not take it for granted. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
