My computer is seriously neglected!  With everything we have had going on recently, I just have not been able to find the time to sit and blog, e-mail, and stay caught up with all that is happening.  As a result, my inbox looks positively awful!  I have hundreds of e-mails that I would love to respond to, but simply cannot get to.  I feel so bad about it.  I wish I had more hours in my day to respond to you all personally.

If you have written to me and not heard back, I am so sorry.  Please know that I so appreciate you reaching out.

When I stared blogging a few years ago, I promised myself that I would never allow it to overshadow or take me away from my family.  Ever!  I have tried very hard to stick to that little rule of mine.  I never want my children to grow up remembering a mother who spent more time with her computer, than with them.  Sometimes the balance is so hard to find and there are times when I fail miserably at it. But God is always so good to bring me back to what’s most important, to gently remind me of my primary mission–the thing He has called me to do in this life…to raise my family and to always make them my top priority!

Recently, my family has needed me to be fully present–and that’s where I’ve been. 

My poor Harper got so sick again.  Just when I thought we had finally seen the end of lightning speed runs to the ER…not!  Harper got croup SO badly again this week.  Poor baby could hardly breathe.  It was so scary seeing her turning paler and paler as she literally gasped for each and every breath.  Thankfully, we have an ER just five minutes away.  Praise God for steroids!  It is the only thing that opens up her airway and gives her relief.   I hate croup so much.  Especially the way Harper gets it.  How we are praying that she outgrows it very soon!

So, life has been a little insane.  Fires, evacuations, croup, a husband adjusting to a new (and extremely busy) schedule, and everything in between have left me feeling like I have very little time for anything else. 

Please forgive me for all the unanswered e-mails.  Thank you so much for understanding.
