I am where I’m supposed to be

 

Ever have one of those great big YAHOO moments?

Yeah, I usually don’t- not until I get knocked down, run over by it and even then it takes me a while.

See, I like the aspect of blogging. But I’m not really an important person. I don’t really have much to write about, talk about. Usually it is just a bunch of ramblings. Sort of like now. I like writing. We are so very basic. Nothing special type of family.

Guess what?? This is where my YAHOO moment came.

That is okay. I don’t write to get famous, to make money, to have tons of followers. I’m not sure I’d want the other stuff that comes with it. The hate mail, the you aren’t parenting right, the blah blah blah.

I just like having a place to put my thoughts, feelings and rumblings. If others want to read it great, if they don’t that’s cool. I’ve accepted it and I’ve stopped comparing myself to anyone else.

My life and the things I’m doing are where I am supposed to be right in this moment. Our lives are very normal. We are different than the average person.

Here is a list of things I don’t do:

Make cute printables, planners, worksheets. I don’t crochet, sew, make soaps, scrubs. I want our family to eat healthy, I want my kids not to fight.

Are you seeing a pattern up there? I have.There are a lot of I don'ts or I wants.

What about what we do have? This is where we struggle. We forget we have a lot.

More than most people. My boys have parents who are still married to each other. Parents who love each other and have a good foundation for them to follow. My boys have their own beds, blankets, pillows and toys. They have clothes, electricity, running water. A home with a roof, a floor and a toilet inside it.

We have tv’s dvds, radios, a refrigerator, food that is cold, can be heated on a stove.

I’m sure we have much more than we actually need.

We also have each other. There are many who have no one else It doesn’t matter the reason. It just matters.

The world wants us to be all about the I want’s and to forget about our needs. What we need to survive. I want to blog, but I don’t have to in order to survive.

We do the best we can in order to stay above water. We aren’t perfect. If I painted a perfect picture here, it would be a lie.

 

We are MESSY….

{ok it doesn’t always look like this, mostly on laundry days}

 

Forgetful, school in our pajamas, school informally at times, eat as healthy as we can.

Schooling in our sleeping bags

We enjoy Tae Kwon Do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Playing board games, computer games and video games. Minecraft! Reading, remote control cars.

These things are part of our every day life. We aren’t special, just normal.

We can’t know for sure, but one day we just might do something important. When that day comes, I’m sure we will embrace it as we have everything else.

 

Until then, I will be happy with where I am and continue on the path that God has placed us on in this time.

 

Grace for today,

Kelli
