Where does the time go?

Wow, these last few months swept my feet right out from under me.  I’ve had to put blogging aside for a while in order to recover from the twists and turns my life has taken recently. Things are finally calming down though, so I’m going to do my best to get back at it.

The last three months have taught me that change is not only necessary, but it keeps us growing… it keeps life moving. I’ve been doing my very best to not only accept it, but to embrace it.

As of April:
I quit my job. Helped start an amazing new school from the ground up.  Got through another doctoral class. Remodeled our kitchen. Started my own business. And now I get to spend EVERY SINGLE DAY with the LOVES of my LIFE.  And in a few weeks, we will take the next step in the adoption process!
“Change is hard because people overestimate the value of what they have and underestimate the value of what they may gain by giving that up.”  (John Belasco)
Everything is falling into place.  And I couldn’t feel more blessed.

Changes…

There are some big changes on the horizon for our family.  Some good, some not that great.  I am fighting off the anxiety of it all by reminding myself it is good for our souls to stir up the dust a little bit.  Change brings growth.  And growing little boys is exactly what I plan to do.  I see more and more each day that it would be impossible to do this without the support of my husband and parents.  There really would be no hope at making it through this crazy life without a “rock” to hold you in place.  I read this great quote the other day:

Now, I know this doesn’t mean anyone can just stop worrying because that is what it says to do… but it is thought-provoking.  It does remind us to stay focused on the present. (Something I know I could and should be reminded of a lot more often.)  What are some ways that enable you to stay in the present instead of worrying about the past or future?
