Slow Down the Clock

Today, my focus will be to slow down the clock. Since having sweet baby #4 it seems life has been a whirlwind of memories circling above me. I can’t seem to recall much about the last two months. I have been contemplating every morning how to apply the brakes and soak in all of the craziness. It finally came to my last night…As my husband was wrestling with the crazy bunch on the floor I sat and watched with a smile on my face..with mind racing about tomorrow.


Then it hit me. I have to take my thoughts captive and be fully present in the moments. Oh, how I love the moments but I am half there! I am missing out!


So, today I start. I will save the multitasking abilities for things to get done for the day, and will only use my heart to savor in the moments. My heart will be the remedy for slowing the ever racing clock.


Let’s see if I can make this happen;)

  • Hang in there, girl! It’s always really hard when a new baby comes into the family and you have a bunch a little ones already. It’ll settle down. It is so very hard to let things go that you just can’t do. Believe me, I know. I was shopping at Wal-Mart with a 1 year old and a 2 day old baby after my second was born. Later on I realized what an idiot I was but I wanted to be tough and able to handle everything that needed to be done. I’ve learned and am still learning that I can’t kill myself to be super-mom. It’s partly a lesson in humility-at least for me. I’m a country girl and I feel like I can handle a lot so it hurts to get knocked down on my you-know-what and need a hand getting back up. I’m pregnant with my 5th and have just come out of 4 months of pretty nasty sick stuff and everything just fell apart around here while I was sick. I didn’t even want anyone to come over to help because I didn’t want them to see how dirty my house was! Anyway, like I said, hang in there. One day, those sweet little young’uns will be wonderful helpers when a new baby comes!

    I sometimes believe that women are the only ones who try to keep it all together and are always thinking about what to do next. Men seem to know how to relish the moment and fully enjoy what is going on around them. Thanks for reminding me to slow down and savor the moment I am living in!
