Why does it always go like this? I have poured my life into my kids...within healthy reason. I've been homeschooling for the last 6 years and I have loved every minute of it. My kids are really smart, creative and other people say they are kind...but in the 4 walls of this house...CONFLICT!
On days like this when they argue about everything, my creative juices are at a stand still. How am I supposed to make that new brides earrings for the wedding next month? I guess the answer is maybe I'm not. Maybe now is one of those, STOP DROP & READ moments. Maybe a little one on one is what we all need right now. Then later when they have each found their groove, I can head into the studio for some quality time with my torch.
In my gut I know this. But before the coffee has truly taken its effect...I'm pretty selfish and want what I want! Don't we all at some point?
What I do know is that I love my family and I love what I do. And for the last 6 years I've been able to balance both, and both have flourished. For that...I am exceedingly blessed.
Ahhh...it is going to be a lovely Friday after all!
