I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, can I really??

Here it is at least 2 months since I blogged last. What is the point of a blog? To write the goings on in my life, well then I should have plenty to blog about because my life never slows down.

Between being a mother of 3, a wife, a pastor's wife, PTO member, Bible study leader, worship leader...shall I go on? I find myself living a full steam ahead life. I am the kind of girl who gets her sights set on something and is so stubborn that I will do whatever it takes to make it happen. Lately things have begun to pile up, things that are out of my control. For a person like me I CAN'T HANDLE IT! I put a smile on my face, fix my hair and get to work. Working in my girls' classrooms, attending all PTO events, Doctor appts, dentist appts, church functions, ladies events...and the list goes on. But somewhere between the lines, somehow as I was attending to everything and everyone a few things went neglected.

So here I am, sitting at home with sick kids. As I watch them build a "waterfall" out of their "blankies" and pillows I am forced to take a deep breath and just sit. Ah.....what a nice feeling to just breathe and sit. The fog is beginning to lift, slow down Rachel and remember to breathe. So ladies and gentlemen I really do; "think I can, think I can, think I can, know I can!"


  1. I miss you friend :) And love you more! I think you need another breather soon :)

  2. I know you can, I know you can, I know you can!
    I know how difficult it can be with the everyday pressures to get everything done and keep everyone happy. You are doing an amazing job juggling motherhood, wifehood, pastor's wifehood, friend, teacher, appointment keeper & leader(s). Be sure to take time to breathe and take time for yourself, even if it is just a minute or hour whenever you can steal away to take care of yourself. You are amazing!
