Y’all…. Life is Messy…

Life is m e s s y!

And hard to keep up with (more on what to do about that soon!)

Sometimes you just wake up and realize you’ve lost all track of which day it is, and pieces fall through the cracks.

Thought Provoking Thursday did that last week and this week, and

Y’all, I apologize!

I want you all to know how much I love and value your community and stopping by each week to share the wonderful posts you’ve written. Ā  I promise I have a plan to get things back on track around here, but it’s not gonna happen in just a day, so I’m asking for your patience and grace for just a little longer.

You all are one of the highlights of my week, and when GOOD things like this start to fall through the cracks, I have to start asking myself:

Where have I let my priorities get pushed aside by a too-long TO DO list?

And what can I do to start putting my priorities first again?


Something to think about…

Good morning, I just wanted to encourage you to wait on the Lord, to seek Him in your plans to reorganize or restructure what you’re wanting to do. Remember – this is ALL His, and He will go before you! Thank you for sharing!!

Wow, today is Thursday, huh? šŸ™‚
No worries, girl. I am just glad to hear that you are OK. Said a prayer for you last week just in case. Hugs

Oh, you don’t know how much that means to me Lyli. Thank you for such thoughtful kindness, and for always being here. Love having you!

Be nicer to yourself. Do what you can when you can but keep your priorities right. I enjoy all you do here – perfection certainly isn’t necessary.

Michelle May 8, 2013 at 11:51 PM

Amen Phyllis. Very wise words. That darn perfectionism snuck up on me again, didn’t it? šŸ™‚ Thank you for the encouragement to be nicer to myself. I need that reminder sometimes!

I have missed you and thanks for the reminder. Yes, things do get out of hand and I realize it takes time to set up a site as pretty as yours. Thanks for hosting and for your encouragement.

Michelle May 8, 2013 at 11:52 PM

Hazel, Thank you. It’s nice to be missed, but it’s even nicer to be appreciated and have you here to enjoy what I post here. Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
