I desperately need more hours in the day. It’s frustrating to know that the day is coming to an end and I’ve hardly done anything productive. Most of my days start off very early but today I got to sleep til 8 am which I can’t remember when I’ve done last. Jumping out of bed, checking to my baby because I though he was already up. He wasn’t which made it possible to go to the toilet in peace and make breakfast. Between breakfast and my son’s first nap I managed to workout. He didn’t wake up before after my shower which was amazing, but after that the day just went into a blur.
We drove to his grandparents in the early afternoon and came home 2 hours later. That would give me more than enough time to do what I need to do. But between diaper changes, making dinner and giving my son a bath there’s not much time left for me.
I’ve been sitting at my sewing machine for the last hour but I just can’t get it to work properly. I’ve seen X amount of YouTube videos on ‘how to’. Everything from threading to sewing, but they all make it seem so simple and here I am still struggling. If I haven’t told you I got a SERGER for my birthday this year but it was bough on eBay so it wasn’t exactly brand new. I thought I could just sit down and start sewing but one problem after another started appearing. I’ve change both knives, needles and all 4 threads – and I still can’t figure it out. Why does everything have to be so bloody difficult with me?
That was my Sunday rant. I just had to get it out so that I wouldn’t go crazy. Sometimes I wish things would just be simple, but I guess that’s just too much to ask for.
Anyway, I hope for a better day tomorrow. Until then, goodnight.
My heart only feels peace when I lay my head down towards You
I can’t stop even if I wanted too
Because right here and now I’m safe
Before I raise up again and ask for Your forgiveness
Even though I know I can never say enough
Know that everything I do, I do for You
With knowledge comes understand
With understanding comes compassion
With compassion comes love
And with love comes peace.
I must say I’m quite nervous. For the unknown, the family we are about to become. Here I am, sitting, waiting, day in and day out. Waiting for you. I never thought you would come so soon but as we plan so does a greater power, and He is the best of planners. So when things get a little bit too hard or nerve-racking I think about that it’s all in the hands of my Creator. This gives me a sense of peace and ease. This is how it’s meant to be and I can’t wait for our next chapter to begin.
I’ve waited so long for the days to turn longer, the leaves on the trees to turn green and the weather warm. Now I’ve got it all and trying so hard to enjoy the longer days, the green trees and the warm breeze. But I can’t help but to think that all that I’ve got now is going to fade and I’m lost standing left with short days, dying trees and cold winds.
Days turn into night and darkness into light. We fade away to the emptiness and stay till we’re next to nothing again.
The days turn shorter and the nights longer. We don’t change because we know something better is coming. The comfort is straining us, killing us one by one. We forget how to live and think we’ll die in peace. As if we’ve done everything our life has set up to offer us. At the times of need we looked away and didn’t take a chance.
Now we’re next to nothing and our lives have gone by without us blinking twice. We regret and wish we could turn it all back. To start over and take the chances we got when they knocked at our door. We lie our heads to rest every night wishing we could go back but in the end we go to sleep and remember that this was all just a dream.
Hello everyone out there!
This is a guest post from a good friend of the owner of this blog.
I’m just going to write a few things about Elizabeth from her best friends view.
1.Elizabeth is very kind and good. She listens to problems and keeps secrets. She is one of the few people I always can trust.
2.Elisabeth is also very good at everything she wants to be good at: School, fashion, hair, make up, economy, health, fitness.. and so much more.
3.Elizabeth is also a smart girl who is able to reflect and think. She doesn’t judge and have many different (strange, funny and good) friends.
There are so many things about Elizabeth that are admirable & she’s one of the people I look up too.
I love my girl so much and I don’t know what I would do without her.
Thank you to all of you for making this a wonderful day for me. Here are some pictures but more will come! Now it’s off to bed cause I’m exhausted, you know being 18 and all can wear you out.
Peace out my lovelies.
