My Traveling Husband

My husband just started a new job assignment, which takes him to California two weeks at a time, with me and our 3 year old in Texas. To be honest, I didn't want him to take the assignment but I know how much it means to him. It's not going to be easy, nor has it been the best past 3 days, but I'm up for the challenge. I must say it has been fun to stay up late talking to him via facetime. It almost felt like we were teens again. And the good morning calls and texts make my heart melt. I still miss my guy though.

{Not So} #Wordless Wed - "Mommy, Don't Write in the Bible!"

Monday evening when we arrived home from work and daycare my daughter starts flipping through the pages of one of my Bibles. To her surprise, she found something unusual on the pages. There they were... bright...yellow...highlights!!!! In usual fashion and tone she inquired, "Mommy, youuuu did this?!" I couldn't help but laugh, which didn't help the situation. "Ooh, you're in trouble! No writing in the Bible!!"

It's hard to explain to a 3 year old that yes the Bible is sacred but it's okay to take notes in the margin and highlight verses that you like. I must've told her one too many times when she first started scribbling that Mommy's Bible pages was off limits, as well as using the cover to sturdy her paper as she drew.

And here we are! Every time she'd flip another page or two, there was another gasp at the highlights. This went on for a few minutes until she heard Daddy's key in the door to which she quickly said "I gotta hide this" and sat awkwardly as he came in. I'm just hysterically laughing at this point and he's bewildered. We tell Daddy that Mommy wrote in her Bible and he starts laughing himself.

One day, she'll get it.

Click here to view more details
Since I went back to work fulltime, I haven’t found that happy balance of taking care of home, family and myself. As women, we often play the dangerous game of comparison. We see other moms seemingly doing it all and either burn ourselves out trying to achieve a never-ending goal, or can go the other way and do our best.

As with everything, I turn to some of my favorite blogs for inspiration. One of those has been, owned by Saidah Washington. I found her site a little over a year ago, looking for resources. I love the printables such as homemaking charts and Bible reading plans. I was so excited to see that see she had created a new organizing workbook, The Official A Proverbs Wife Guide: “How to Get Organized in 24 Hours.”
