Ultimate Mom Moment
I quit. There – you have it. That’s my Ultimate Mom Moment. I decided this week that I had to quit doing a few things. First, I quit homeschooling and then, I quit looking at things all over facebook. Honestly (can you keep a secret?) I’d like to quit facebook. But, there is a reason I am there. However, if that reason ceases to exist, I’m not sure my presence will remain on facebook. Though, I do love my facebook community for Mom’s Mustard Seeds.
I know – I know I can keep up with some of my friends and they can see what I’m doing. But, in reality…a good phone call is better than peeking in on someone else’s life. I found that that’s what I would do – ‘let me just see what they’re up to’….and then an hour has passed. A WHOLE hour that could have been spent with my children, family, working on a project or writing something I’ve had on the back burner for 6 months.
So, while I quit homeschooling and have a desire to quit facebook – but keep my sweet community there, I’m torn between what I want and need to do and just don’t know which way God will lead me yet.
What about you? Do you have something you want to quit?
Is there something getting in the way of you being the Wife and Mom you were created to be? Is there something taking away from time with your husband or have you noticed your children aren’t listening?
Those might be signs you need to make changes. They have been for me. So, don’t be shocked if you find me quitting and saying no to few more things, so I can say yes to those things that are most important in my life
This week, I had to pick three posts to feature.
Liz stole my heart with her post: On Having My Hands Full. She is a Mom on a mission to start a “movement where moms don’t feel exasperated by their kids, but see struggles as a growth opportunity.” YES YES YES! Let’s do that Liz
Katey – oh sweet Katey! How blessed I am that you picked Ultimate Mom as a place for your first vlog. And it wasn’t just any vlog, it was one reminding Mom – to take a break! Yes, our children need us renewed and refreshed! If you didn’t see Katey’s vlog – go see it at It’s OK to take Mom breaks
And last but not least How to Succeed as an Educational Printables Business via Jill. I’ll be printing this. Remember, we are working to get out of debt. So, finding new ways to increase our income is forever on my mind!
Now, it’s time to link up – share your post and read all of the great resources created by Moms for Mom! Also, please take a moment and comment on the post in front of yours or behind it.
