how dare i

i was just cutting out a shirt that i'm making as a surprise for my daughter for my birthday, wishing i was making something more important.

and caught myself
how dare i

how dare i think that what i make for my children isn't important
how dare i think that something i make that isn't for someone else or that i'm not making money on isn't worth it

i might as well give God the finger
He gave me this gift..
this shirt that i'm making for my daughter could be the most important thing she gets for her birthday.. how dare i not think it's important or worth my time.

being a mom.. activities

there's only 1 class left for my 10 year old for tumbling.. then a break.

there's only 1 class left and a tournament for my 8 year old in floor hockey.. then we need to get her back into horse lessons. she'll need to get back in the saddle so she can barrel race come fair time.

and my 7 year old continues with her ballet lessons.. she's decided to take a different dance class next year.

even though these things make us busier.. i'm glad my kids are getting involved in things.

Proverbs 1

20-23 wisdom is calling out to be heard, are we going to respond? or are we going to ignore? 

24-27 if you ignore wisdom, it will leave you, and it will turn you away. 

28-31 when you ignore wisdom and brush it aside, it will hide from you when you ask for it. you will not be able to find it. 

32-33 if you are complacent and lazy, ignoring the wise, you will come to ruin. but those who listen to wisdom and make it part of their lives will be safe and at ease.

i would rather listen to the wisdom of the Lord, the wisdom of others, listen to the words of the wise people in my life, and apply their words.. 
than to ignore it and become a fool, be scrambling for peace and clarity.
