First some pics of my son on the beach the other evening. The weather has granted us the a few opportunities to spend more time there this week, and we try to make to most of it.
It all looks idyllic, doesn’t it …. picture perfect perhaps?
I do wonder about how much I share on my blog – too much, too little, too impersonal, too personal? I also don’t want to appear to be blogging bragging (with picture perfect photos on my blog etc) – yes, I love my husband and I kids, we are able to spend time at the beach, but I want to assure you my life is not perfect.
I tend to focus on the more positive aspects of life in my blog, sharing things that inspire me, make me laugh etc but that doesn’t mean my life is perfect. As a Christian we are not assured of an easy life, free of pain and sadness, but we are assured of HIS presence along the way.
However I also want to keep it real………we too have bickering siblings, mountains of laundry, sand everywhere, and lots of tears. While I don’t want to dwell on these things, I want to assure you that they happen in our home too.
If you blog, how do you find your balance? I am aware I can’t please all of the people all of the time, but I hope I manage to please some of you occasionally, and after all, it is MY blog, and expressing myself here makes ME happy 🙂
I hope some of this rambling makes sense, but it has been on my mind since reading Jen’s post on her blog. Would love to hear your thoughts (hint, hint!)
Other random happenings
- The hectic-ness that is CSSM is almost over for another year, and once again I am grateful to all the leaders who give up their holidays and enegery to spend time with our kids.
- Taking lots of photos, and I have a new canvas print of one of my photos to show to you soon, which I have been given to review by CanvasDezigns. Cant wait to share it with you.
- Bought this deck chair at our church auction recently, and I LOVE it – but it still challenges me every time I try to set it up! I was thinking I could put a piece of tape on one part, so I know which end is which…. but where would be the fun in that, and I like a challenge!
I did try to have a lovely photo of George the cat dozing beside said deck chair, but he was either ungracefully sticking a back leg in the air while he groomed himself, or he would immediately walk towards me for a stroke everytime I bent down to take a photo. Just keeping it real!
So this week I am joining in at The Inspired Room, and I am being inspired to keep it real! Are you inspired by anything this week?
That’s your lot for now….come back soon.
