Slow down. Life is short.
The nights sure feel long.
And sometimes the days feel long, too.
But, the years pass by way too quickly.
When we look at little Kendall, and think of
when the others were little snuggie babies,
we remember how quickly these moments pass.
I don't want to just enjoy the newborn days of my little Kendall.
I want to enjoy the young years that all of my kids are in right now.
I know I can never get them back.
I have been pretty much home for the last three weeks.
And, you know what? I like it.
I want to stay home more often.
Drag the kids around on errands less often.
Besides, I am little afraid of going grocery shopping with all of them right now.
Staying home gives us more time to play together.
It also makes it so much easier for me to do the house work.
I cooked my first complete meal in a while, yesterday for valentine's day.
I had the kitchen cleaned before I started.
I've been working on it this morning.
But, I still have a ways to go.
SO MANY DISHES.
I think I should start embracing the crock pot,
and other 1 pot meals.
Here's the big decision.
I am "closing" my flower business.
Or, taking a big, long break from it.
I still love flowers & floral arranging & wedding & all.
I'd still love to have an occasional job for friends.
But, I am tired of taking phone calls from strangers (customers).
I don't want to try to make the sale.
And, I don't want to try to grow the business.
My heart is not in it.
Ultimately, the business is not aiding our family toward our goals at this point.
So, I am stopping it for now.
I want to focus. I've got 4 babies.
Eliminating stress points make life with little ones much better.
We've got walks to take, books to read, neighbors to meet...
We've got character to work on, good habits to learn, friends to love...
I still love flowers. But, we've got other things to do right now.
