Ever had one of those days where you want to pull the covers over your head and pretend that you are someone else. I had one Today. Starting a moms group is kicking my butt right now. It probably wouldnt be this exhausting if we were in our new home, because I would be able to have everyone there, but as it is right now- that wont be a possibility for atleast another month (insert deep long sigh here). We have had 25 moms join in the last 2 weeks. Twenty Five. Our first coffee night was a huge success and I am sure this group will take off running like a champ once it gets its feet off the ground- Its the getting its feet off the ground part that is going to be the death of me.
The kids are doing good. Going a bit stir crazy, but all in all they are having a great summer. Most of their time is spent in the pool. Swimming has come very easy for all of them. The smallest just floats around in her swimmy floats and bounces like she is on cloud 9! Weve spent alot of time out of the house with playdates and outings, which has been wonderful. They are going to the inlaws for 3 weeks in July (all but the smallest) which will be alot of fun for them. Hopefully by the time they get home, we will be in our new home! Please God, Please!
We are also in the process of doing a major revamp at church, which is very exciting to us. Young families are mine and my husbands passion, and having the opportunity to reach out to them has been a great experience. Hopefully things continue on the same path and the changes that need to be made are made easily. We spent about 2 hours discussing with some of the members the importance of ‘change’. But we are also fully aware that change is very difficult to accept, and radical change is even harder. The group of people we met with were very open and honest about their feelings and their fears, but at the same time very supportive regarding the need to step outside of the box in ministry.
All in all, things are good. I am blessed and very very happy to be where I am. Even if I am exhausted.
