I'm an Unfinished Mom.
Why unfinished? Because it seems like nothing in my home is ever finished.
The bill paying.
The grocery shopping.
The coupon clipping.
I've got tons of goals to accomplish and never enough time/energy/space and motivation all at the same time to get them done. It can be frustrating at times.
I'm also unfinished because, well it may sound cliche, but God's not finished with me. I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. And I am a work-in-progress. God has a great future planned for me. He said so in the Bible - Jeremiah 29:11. And, He promised in Philippians 1:6 that he would continue to work on me. Right now that's what I'm counting on. Because, frankly I certainly haven't got this whole mom thing figured out.
In fact, I don't think I've got much of anything really figured out. It's all a work in progress. I'm still learning. And, that's what I blog about. I blog about this journey. The journey to being a better Mom. A better cook. A better housekeeper. A better economist. A better Christian.
Please, come in. Look around. Have a cookie. Make yourself at home.
As you mosey around, you may run into my two great kids; a boy age 7 and a girl age 5. He's into SuperHeroes, Pokemon, and is desperate for us to let him spend his itty bitty savings on a Bakugan! She's seriously into princesses, especially Cinderella, and recently discovered Fancy Nancy. They keep me busy.
I also have a fantastic husband. He is incredibly patient. He puts up with a lot of unfinished stuff. And he's really good at encouraging me. God really knew what I needed. I am humbled and grateful.
As you roam around I hope you'll find a lot of hospitality and a bit of encouragement along the way because, hey, we all need a little encouragement. And after all, aren't we all a bit unfinished?
For my part, This is my first time hopping the party, but here are few gems I've found along the way (I'll add to the list as the week continues).
