I already know that April is going to be a tough month for me so I'm going to keep my goals to a minimum. :) No sense setting myself up for the F word, right? But, I do still want to set some goals - I've noticed that by listing out a few things, I'm more apt to actually try and work on them. What about you? Do you set goals for yourself each day, week, month, and/or year?
Intentional and joy filled quiet time - Let's just call this a work in progress! I really strive to give God my first fruits but sadly, on many days, He gets my leftovers. This is not ok but something that I'm desperately trying to improve upon.
Vegas last month and it.was.amazing! I LOVE spending time just the two of us! Unfortunately, that was our only alone time. April and May are always full of events so I know scheduling time for just the two of us will be uber important.
10th birthday party for Holden - Once I returned from Vegas, it was party central around our house! Happy to report that the sewing party was a success and our double digit birthday girl had a fabulous time!
* do what I can, with what I have, where I am - My mom is having knee replacement surgery next week so I will be coming and going a lot trying to help out where needed. Not being at home will be tough but I really want my focus to be where I am at that particular time. I've poured over our schedules and have tried to come up with the best possible solution but I know there will be things I will miss and things that I will not be able to complete. But, like my goal states - I want to focus on what I can do, with the resources I have, wherever that might be.
OCD tendencies will want to take over but I will need to carve out time to spend with Mike, Colby, and Holden. Hope will be with me while I take care of my mom so she and I will get to spend LOTS of time together in the hospital, at my parent's house, and many hours in the car. I found these ideas and they could definitely work for special one-on-one dates!
March goals? Have you made a new list for April yet? Let's keep each other accountable!
Have a blessed day! Gig 'em and God bless!
