Just Another Day

So many people make comments to me about how I live in this dream world where I'm married to the perfect man, have a perfectly behaved daughter and an endless supply of time in my day to sit around, craft, take pictures and play the piano. Haha I guess I'm doing a bang up job at highlighting all of the amazing parts of my life!! My blog is a place where I try to do little, if any complaining, so this post is not to complain, it's only to give a little insight into my reality: 

Im married to a wonderful man who is self employed, so although it looks like I have a husband around 24/7 to help me with my every whim and need... between the meetings and the phone calls and office time I get the same amount of time (if not less) with him as most wives do... minus weekends ANNND a tornado house at all hours of the day  during the week from my messy messy man. 

My daughter is beautiful and although she may look like an angel she is just like every other kid. She has her temper tantrums, she is the most stubborn person I have ever met in my entire life. Everything is a fight with my girl. haaha half of every day is spent trying to figure out what she needs when she's crying uncontrollably.

 I don't have endless amounts of time in my day, I usually get 15 minutes max of complete alone time in the morning when Marley is watching cartoons. If I try and even look at a computer screen or sit to play the piano during the day,  Marley is at my feet screaming and pulling on my leg until she has my attention. 

All of the artwork and the pictures and the time on the piano and blogging,  the trips to Disneyland, the walks... those are things that I do everything I can to fit into my life between the crayons on the cupboards, juice on the carpet, the piles of laundry, time outs, potty training both a dog and a one year old, the cooking, cleaning, clients and dealing with day to day conflicts. 

My life is imperfect, its without structure... which is how I like it, but it also means chaos  and disorder a lot of the times. In bringing Marley into the world I quickly realized how fast time flies. I decided I didn't want to waste any time dwelling on the inevitable hard things in life. So just because I don't choose to spend my time complaining all of the time doesn't mean I never have hardship, it just means that my personal choice is to live life to its fullest... and live thankful for just another day.

Philippians 4:8 

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Leeann and I just had a conversation on this topic last night... I feel ya Ambs and I agree our lives are not perfect, they are imperfectly perfect. We have to live our life focusing on the happy, good, pure, joyous, and pleasurable because if not one becomes a negative sad person...love ya
