Just keep swimming.

So, since adoption and infertility tend to cloud my brain much of the time when I’m not busy, I prayed on Sunday that I would be busy this week.  Disclaimer: DON’T EVER PRAY TO BE BUSY.  Because the good Lord will provideth. 

My week was insane!  In brief, this: regular job duties, a bazillion meetings, two trainings, a faculty meeting, academic team practice and our first league match.  Plus the whole I have a family thing.   Seriously, my head is barely above water today.  PTL for the weekend!

I really have nothing to share today, but this: put your computer down, grab your favorite drink, and go do something that makes you happy.  That is your lesson plan for the weekend.  Or at least until Sunday.  Just go BE.  We all need a break :)

I love reading your blog - and today's seemed to echo my week. Thanks for the reminder.

I'll continue to pray for you in the whole adoption process - I know there's some child out there who is going to be extremely blessed to have you as their mom!

I agree. Sometimes we are all go-go-go and we forget that sometimes we just need to stop.
