The Gift of Time… Trying not to wish it away.


I have the pleasure of being home full time for 4 fulls weeks so far. I have only 2 FULL weeks left … I have a 2 week training out of state that I leave for soon. We have had lots of fun so far this summer and this summer off has created lots of excitement and memories.

I am still working on the arguments I tend to have in my head, about taking time for myself and spending (making up) time with my family.  I am so grateful to have a VERY supportive family that goes above and beyond to help me create balance.

In all of this, I find myself focusing on the “little time” left and what I need to get accomplished prior to my school year starting (we start August 1).  I am definitely getting better at pushing those thoughts out of my head.

Do any of you out there spend time working about the time… instead of utilizing the time? If so share with me, ,won’t you. If struggled with this and mastered how to get over with it…. spit it out and share your methods with me and my over active brain.

  1. The balance of time when it is connected to God can indeed be a wonderful gift. Be blessed in these coming weeks and truly try to find a Him and you space of real connection. It truly can make the time last longer. Bless you. Faye R.


  2. People don’t often realize that educators who really care can do so at the expense of their own families. I am so excited for you as you are finding the balance and time to have the right focus.


  3. I think the term “woggle” should be added to the dictionary. It is much too underrated for those of us who are willing to exercise, but don’t always have the super-athletic bodies that allow us to run miles without breaking a sweat. Loved the post; balance can be the key to living a healthy life!

    1. I am going to continue the fight on making Woggle and official word LOL. I totally agree that balance can be the key to living a healthy life– I think it works vis versa too. Now to figure out how to find both daily.

  4. Your list IS overzealous for mere mortals, but if you don’t set goals, you’ll never achieve them. You are a powerful super lady with an amazing way of making things happen. So proud of you!
