Priorities

Priorities are a funny thing.  Some priorities don’t change-like time with my family. But for me, others can change with the seasons, weekly, sometimes even daily. I have to constantly remind myself what my priorities are or else my time slips away on the things that aren’t.

This summer has flown by, and up until a few weeks ago I was feeling torn.  Blogging had become a new priority in my life, and I knew I should be posting regularly (I did my research-blogging is all about frequency and brevity!)  I knew this, but I struggled to find time to blog while also teaching summer art camps and spending time with my kids.
When feeling torn, I have learned to turn to God-He sees things more clearly than I do. He reminded me that some priorities change with the seasons. This brief season of summer involves my boys being home, wanting to spend time with me, and I want to be careful not to squander this gift.  I know it is fleeting, and in a few years I may be longing for these days where they actually WANT to hang around their mom.

So even though I have felt like I need to apologize for not posting regularly, I’ve decided I’m not going to apologize. Instead I’m going to embrace this season and squeeze every last drop out of this summer with my boys.  I will pick up my blogging where I left off in a couple of weeks when they are back in school, and I hope to see you here again at that time.  For now, I’m off to the pool to play with my kids!
