I sometimes struggle with boundaries, because I want to be all things to those around me, but that is not going to serve anyone if I am feeling overwhelmed and anxious. Also keeps me from deep friendships. So last week and this week while we had company instead of planning out what we would be doing and making some big meal, I just got frozen pizza and we just hung out, and it was nice and relaxing!
This week it has been hot here, pool worthy hot! I am not much of a sun or pool person, but daddy and the kiddos played in the pool while I read a book, it was nice, we all had a good time. I took the kids to the Animal Tales show at our library, the kids loved seeing different kinds of reptiles, me not so much, but it was nice to be out of the heat. We enjoyed a family mini golf outing! Abigail had golf class again on Sunday night and she hit one of the best hits, so proud of her. I only wish I could play golf like her, but my patience with golf works against me. I enjoy watching her and you know that is what kids want from us sometimes, to just watch them and be there. I often hear, mommy did you see that, mommy watch me... Love seeing the excitement on their faces!! My kids bring me much joy and I am thankful for God making me a mommy two my precious children. Though they sometimes drive me crazy and days can be long, I love being a mommy! It is a great calling!!
