I feel like the last several years of my life have just been "go, go, go..." I have many things to write on my work resume, community service resume, and travel resume from the past few years. But, when did I stop and ENJOY the world around me?
I quit my job in October. I LOVED my job. I still LOVE my old job, and most days wish that I could get it back or that it somehow would've worked out for me. I quit because I needed to quit. Eric kept saying that things with me needed to change. I wasn't having fun, or being fun. And, I knew it too.
And, so, I wonder today, if I might be getting back a little more of myself. I wonder how spending all day with a one year old is making life more purposeful and more enjoyable. I wonder how my day was fulfilled by watching the sparking lights on the Christmas tree in the mall. I wonder what made me dance around with Parker when he through cheerios all over the carpet. I wonder what the future holds...
This week I saw a glimpse of the old me. And, I think I'm going to be enjoying a little more of the world around me.
"Taste and see that the Lord is good."

Do you have somewhere or someone with whom you can truly be yourself? Someone who knows the dirt and the grime and still hangs around? Do you have somewhere you can go where you feel free?
These are the things I'm thinking about today. Wanna know what got me on this track? Take 30 minutes and listen or watch Out of the Shadows on the following website.

But, I guess it's in the failing moments that we learn most.
What have I learned thus far?
- I need people.
- I need to get out of the house.
- It is a bad day when the highlight of my day is seeing James Blunt sing about a triangle on Sesame Street.
- Parker needs people.
- Parker needs to get out of the house.
- Parker doesn't care if James Blunt is on Sesame Street.
Seriously, I think this is just like any other job change that I've had. The first day you come home excited because you have the BEST JOB EVER! The next few days you wonder how "they" can consider this a full time job and you're a little bored. Then all of a sudden it hits you that you were bored because you were ignorant, and you're the busiest you've ever been. I'm in the bored phase right now.
So, any other stay-at-home moms out there? What do you do all day with your kids, specifically a one year old? What do you do to stay connected with friends?
