Climbing Mt. Kids' Clothes

I am still alive.

I am surrounded by piles of kids clothes.

Another reason I don't care for this time of year.

Do you realize how long it takes to go through, sort, put away, and give away 6 kids worth of summer and winter clothes?

I really hope I am done by Thanksgiving.

This little exercise does give me quite a bit of time to process all that is going on in my life right now.

There is a post "a-brewin'" in my head over the changes that we are making and the simplicity that I am trying to implement.

I am seeing glimpses of it.

We are dreaming. We are relaxing. We are getting excited about what God is doing in our family.

I am sensing a new excitement in me for the calling God has placed on my life.

Hey, I have cooked real meals 4 out of the last 7 days! That alone is a change in how we have been operating over the last 1 1/2 years.

That is only the beginning.

So, now I must go climb that mountain.

I think it is at least a fourteener.

The oxygen definitely feels thinner and my breath is shorter as I figure out how to get all this done.

  1. Your blog is like a breath of fresh air to me. I love staying connected with you and getting the glimpse into your life. It feels like we live just down the street :-)! Thanks for sharing.

    My mound of midterm grading feels like that mound of clothes right now. You've inspired me!

    I love you so much!
