Live Life as Bullfrogs & Butterflies

As a mom of 3 beautiful, albeit very active, little boys the days seem to pass in the blink of an eye. Between play time, art time, story time, tiny tot t-ball, doctor's appointments, and running a home-based business, it's often hard to find a moment to catch my breath...but I wouldn't change it for the world! God has blessed me with the opportunity to be at home with my children during their early years and I am determined to make the most of it and do whatever I must to preserve this treasured gift.

That doesn't mean that things have been or will be easy. Our family is not independently wealthy, nor do we have a sizable nest egg stored away to fill in the gaps that my paycheck used to fill. But we feel that this is what God has for us right now and that the foundation we are providing for our boys is priceless. Sometimes we make choices that are difficult...sometimes we are led in a way that we don't quite understand...but when I feel uncertain or overwhelmed about what is right for me and my family, I choose to think of this...

If you have a dream, follow it. If you pray for guidance and receive it, acknowledge it. If you reach out for answers and pull back a blessing, rejoice in it. A bullfrog jumps out never really knowing exactly where he will land but trusting God to set him down safely somewhere....a caterpillar builds her chrysalis not quite sure of what lies ahead but trusting God that there is something beautiful to come...How wonderful it is to live life as Bullfrogs & Butterflies!
