Grown-up Talk

I was blessed to have a wonderful friend come over for a couple hours today with her little girl and indulge me in some grown-up mommy talk.  It was fabulous! Thank you Sarah.  I also promised her that I would blog more often about what's going on in our lives.

I was reminded today of the importance of regular fellowship for us stay-at-home/homeschooling mothers.  I can get so caught up in the everyday activities (and messes) of life that I forget to reach out for support, advise, and just good old talk time.  It is so refreshing, inspiring, and uplifting to share the stresses, triumphs, and questions with those who are in the midst of similar situations.  For instance, I found out today that I'm definitely not the only one who struggles with balancing housework and kids, even though it feels like it most of the time.  Imagine that.

I think that fellowship should most certainly be on my list of things I would like to improve in the coming year.  Oh my.  Just thinking about things to improve has my mind reeling.  There are so many things to tackle.  I think this calls for some serious thought and feasible expectations.  A list of five things would probably be a good start.  I'll whittle down my list and produce something manageable for the new year.  I may or may not post them, so don't hold your breath.
