  It has been a very long time since I attempted blogging, but I love how it connects other Moms, and encourages so I am going to try again.
I don't know why it hit me recently, but I know many out there have had these same thoughts.  Ever thought "WHO AM I?"  You graduate High School, go to college, get married, and before you know you have a bunch of kids.  I didn't go to college, I was married at 19, and we had our 1st child right away.  God has since blessed us with 7 more, and lately I find myself thinking "WHO AM I?"  I think it is easy to let all of our roles in life define who we are, and feel like we are losing ourselves.  At least this is how I am feeling lately.
As a Christian, I know I am a child of God.  But, beyond that?  I am a daughter, sister, wife(military wife), Mother.  What do I enjoy outside of that?  I know many women work, and I am guessing that is what they feel at times “defines them.”  For me I am a homeschool, “stay at home Mom.” We are all created for a purpose, and I believe that is serving God through how we live our lives.  As long what we are doing we are doing for the Glory of God, how can we go wrong?    
 Many women who stay at home do sales in home parties, or have hobbies.  I am in no way saying that you should never have time apart from your family, or a night out with friends.  For me, I am in a season where my time is limited, and depends much on my husband’s schedule.
This got me thinking, what can I do, or learn to do better, that not only I enjoy, but that can benefit my family?  I have tried some gardening with vegetables.  I would love to take a class. I like to try sewing from time to time, and that is fun too.  Another passion for me is caring for my family naturally.  Recently I signed up with Young Living. 
In case you are thinking about looking at the kits which are a great deal, and the diffuser has been amazing.  Only thing that has helped allergies for us naturally.

I haven’t done much yet with it, but am slowly learning.  
I don’t want to do anything that takes away from my family.  My husband being in the Air Force, with the job he has here makes it interesting to plan for much.  I want to honor God with my life, and so that leads me to time management, and how do we spend the 24 hours in a day wisely?  I am trying to figure that out.  I am on the computer way too much for useless stuff, and would like to change that.  I want to make a schedule.  Nothing rigid, but something that helps guide our day, or when Dad goes away, and that changes everything, we still have something constant that we know will happen.  Hope in my next post to have made something that I can share : )
Does anyone have one that they are willing to link up?

I leave you with a recent picture of our 8 precious children
