Falling In Love With The New Normal
I am not going to hold back about the fact I had lost joy in being a homemaker over the past year...
There was so many changes. I was unable to do the things I used to do... I had to depend on others for help. Both of my girls has graduated and my homeschool career had ended.
I had given up on trying to craft.
I had lost the joy of being a homemaker.
I began to pray for God to give me the joy and love to serve my home the way I once had even though, there is a new normal.
I can praise Him and say,that He did just that.
Last week was the first week in a long time I searched out new recipes.
I enjoyed the hunt and cooking something new for my family.
I prepared buffalo chicken garbage bread and Caribbean Jerk chicken in the crock pot! Both were huge hits with my family!
I forgot to take a picture of the final product! I filled it a little to full! So it didn't turn out as pretty as I liked! However it was amazing with ranch to the side!
The Jerk chicken was a crock pot recipe, it was easy and delicious!
I even found the energy to do some sewing! I spent some time playing with new patterns! I can not help it I love to sew for 18 in dolls. I am excited to finally have found a way to incorporate a passion back into my life. I have realized I just have to pace myself. I don't have to marathon sew to enjoy it.
I was super excited to learn how to sew pockets! I love these little jumpers! I was quite pleased with how they turned out!
Here is is the finished product!
I am over the moon excited to soon be putting out my fall decorations! I love to transform my house for the different seasons!
I have had to adjust my mindset a little. All though my family structure is changing, I still want to love caring for our home and loving them.
I want my girls to see that even when huge life changes, that we still need to love taking care of our home and family. It just played out in a different way than we once did.
I am so thankful ignited the fire in my heart for the things that I love so very much.
Monday we enjoyed an afternoon at American Girl with friends. We had lunch in the bistro its such a fun experience.
This week has been filled with lots of preparations to go spend time with one of my besties! My hubby is preaching revival for their church.So that means I get to spend time with chosen family!
That makes my heart so happy!
It looks like I am packing to move away lol. So I am sure it will be a job when we get home. It will be worth every moment of it though!
Thank you stopping by and allowing me to share a glimpse of my life with you! It is my prayer that you have a blessed week !
