*Katie are her blanket wallowing in the hall (do you see the baby bump in the picture?)
My life is precious, as is yours but you know what? Sometimes I forget that. I get caught up in the blog world, the great pictures, the simple lives, the homeschool choices, how this person lives their life, this person's choice of how they spend their time, how well this person expresses them self....

Before I know it, I am wondering about the choices I've made. Maybe I should be using that curriculum, maybe we should be spending more time doing that, maybe we should be eating like them.
*Maggie and Emma decided all the clean dishes and silverware needed to be rewashed
and the kitchen needed to swept - my idea of fun : )
I *constantly* fall into the trap of comparing myself to others. But not only myself but also our family's lifestyle.

I've blogged for over 5 years and if you've been following for long then you know this is a constant battle for me. I can't seem to let online life be online life. I've had so many areas of my life reformed by the Lord opening by eyes and allowing us to see others convictions in certain areas. I always worry about what I'll miss out on learning if I let it all go, not go my blog as reading others blogs.

Most all my fellowship and friendships are online. Not by choice, just by sheer lack of close choices. I know I am missing out on so much here at home because my mind and heart are constantly on things that matter not. I long for focus on my own life, to be more grounded in who and what we are, and "to lead a quite life". Anyone else battle with this?
