Me Today

:: 22 weeks pregnant!
:: anxious about our business and farm
:: spreading our Biodynamic Preps around our home garden and orchard in this pic
:: anticipating a new little soul joining our oh-so-busy family
:: worrying about trivial things
:: worrying about how it will all work out
:: seriously enjoying the ages and stages of my children:
    Baxter - independent, footy mad and social
    Gretta - hungry to learn and sympathetic
    Monty - super cheeky and wise beyond his almost 3 years 
:: creating in the kitchen. usually without a recipe
:: thankful for good friends
:: in a strange funk

Sometimes crazy to go with the ebb and flow of life. How do you bring it all back to a manageable level?

Oh gosh is mad isn't it? With only 2 kids and a farm our life gets crazy so I sympathise with you! To gets things back to a manageable level I cook, walk or work in the garden. These things momentarily calm my mind if nothing else! Lovely to hear from you.

I am in a funk too. I am trying to keep seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. You, you have so much going on, and the hormones, so no wonder you are in a funk. Hope you can climb out of it soon.

Amy, you need to simply sit on your lounge-room floor, with children climbing over you. Talk to your husband. Enjoy your family. They are all that matters. Everything else will fall into place. Enjoy.

Join the anxious worrying bandwagon...I think I think too much, see I think about thinking!
Happy 22 weeks, you're looking glorious. Don't worry about HOW things will work, just make sure you LET them work. Good luck, wish we were seeing you before bubs arrival xxx

"Rejoice in the Lord not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Ane THE PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:4-7
These verses have gotten me through some really scary stuff and I have committed them to memory.
You are up to your eyeballs sometimes Honey, but you are ever so capable and Nic is too. Do what you can and leave the rest for God to handle.
Oh yeah, gardening helps me too. Walking too, or even housework!
Love you to the moon.
