Things I Use To Do

Hey y’all…missed me yet?  I know I’ve been slacking on writing on my blog, but they say that distance makes the heart grow fonder…did it work?  In my defense, this summer has been busy with vacations, weddings, projects, and birthday parties!  Seems the older I get, the harder it is to multi-task…Maybe I will get around to sharing some things from my summer with you soon.  Until, then I thought I’d just do a little writing about “Things I used to do”.  My friend tagged me the other day in a memory with this picture.  Yep, I used to make cakes…for fun (insert tone of how was that ever possible).  I tried making a cake for my middle son’s birthday a few months ago, only because it was too late to order one, and fun was not how I would describe it.  Even when I was doing it for fun, I hated my work, it was never “perfect” enough.  I didn’t charge nearly enough for the amount of time I put into them.  Now, when I look back, I think they weren’t so bad.  This particular cake was one of my favorites.  I loved the inside layers with all the different colors!  But, I also think…how did I ever do that?  Do you do that?  Look back on something you did and wonder how in the world you ever accomplished that?  I guess it’s because we all go through different seasons in our lives.  I suppose that’s the way life is supposed to go.  I keep telling myself that I’m going to blink and the house will be empty and I’ll have time for all the hobbies I can stand.  So, I try to savor the daily madness around here.  It’s hard when you’re in the midst of it, I know!  But, this season too shall pass.  I’m sure I’ll look back at pictures one day and think “how in the world did I keep three kids dressed and fed” haha!  Until, that day I’ll just keep on keeping on and try my best not to compare who I am to who others are…we all used to do some awesome things and we are all doing something awesome right now, we just need time to see it from a different perspective to be able to appreciate those things.  So, even though I’m not able to do it all (even though I sometimes feel like everyone else around me is able to) I will know that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing at this time in my life…and so are you!
