Who am I really?

Today I have worn so many hats. I started thinking about it and thought I'd share. - Got up with the kids and wore my mommy hat. - Made breakfast and wore my service hat. - After coffee, I read and worked on my Beth Moore study of James and wore my student hat. - Then the tidying/cleaning began and I wore my cleaner hat. (can you believe I sorted through our winter hats a gloves? Crazy girl.) - I got the kids set up with coloring and crafts and I wore my teacher hat. - I dusted, vacuumed, did laundry and I wore my "need-to-workout-but-this-will-have-to-do-for-today" hat. - I responded to email and order some prints and wore my business woman hat. - Now I'm blogging and delighting my crazy life...

You have to be a little crazy to do 3 kids, maintain a house, be married, and excel at business ALL AT THE SAME TIME! but, I do it every day. Of course I struggle and I almost always wish I could it better, but it works and I'm so thankful. Ohhh, one more thing, I get tired and want to quit like everyone but, I don't quit...because I believe I'm doing what I should be doing. AND there's something important to learned in everything I face EVERY DAY. So I keep climbing and ask the Lord help me to enjoy the climb as much as the success of reaching the summit.

There is so much more to me. I wear the hats of daughter, sister, friend and mentor. Today I'm taking a step back and taking in the beauty of my hat collection. I'm privileged. and thankful. (Not shopping for more hats at the moment!)

For those of you who read this blog and don't know me personally...be encouraged. We're in this together. Embrace the crazy and enjoy the process of growth! If I knew you better I'd say changing hats is fun and why not laugh today. Here's my "walking through a field laughing shot" by my friend Shelley Paulson (incredible photographer!) Hope it makes you smile!
