Rambling Thoughts...

I have taken a much needed blog break, not one that I initially intended to take, it just happened. I have enjoyed the break, and in the process my mind has been working on overload. With a nursing baby there seems to be much awake time, therefore lots of time for thinking! Here are a few things that ramble around in my noggin....

Why does time go so much faster as we get older?....September already, 2 birthdays this month!....To blog or not to blog?....Time to nurse Susanna......I need to make a new grocery list.....Napping, napping as an adult is wonderful, wish I had appreciated it as a child!.....Ah, new babies are pure joy, sleep or no sleep ;)......Boy, we sure have accumulated a lot of  'stuff' over the years....We need to make a trip to Goodwill to donate this stuff!....Nurse Susanna....Having children from adults down to a new born is interesting, definitely not something I thought I would ever have......Crayon on the wall, grrr! Not funny!!!.....The seasons of life change quickly, I pray as I get older I always remember these seasons....There are only a few more days of swimming left, I need to make sure the kids enjoy them....Almost time to feed Susanna, again.....My 2 grandmothers are 93 and 92 they still live on their own, hard to imagine being that age.... Strange how years ago I thought the infant/baby stage was the best, now I see every stage is awesome!...Arthur has been so busy, we need a date night, well with Susanna :)....Fall is around the corner, so many places to go, events to attend, oh and yummy fall foods....Do I continue to blog or call it quits??.....We should go pick apples this year.....I love watching my children turn into adults, getting their own ideas, interests, convictions, and best of all hearing them speak what's on their hearts and in their dreams, truly a joy! In a few weeks we'll all be working at the store again, and back to full days of school. I'm looking forward to that.....Baby skin so soft, and the smell oh the smell!...Christmas, soon I'll have to think about Christmas!....Nurse Susanna, a sweet time to cuddle and hold my small one close.... I need to go to the post office, I have packages to mail.....School, I need to write down my project ideas....Potty training, Mary Ann is ready but Mama isn't?! In a few weeks I'll work on that with her......Cleaning house, seems we have cleaned our house more this summer than ever!...I sure wish I had been able to can lots of veggies this summer. Maybe next summer will be my big year of canning....Littles have such adventures each day, it's so fun to watch their imaginations unfold....Sisters, tea parties, dress up and  baby dolls what a fun combination....Brothers, airsoft, Legos, water fights, wrestling, and Roy Rogers life is never dull....Adult children, deep conversations, laughter, a special bond with siblings, and young wisdom so very refreshing...AGE, yes, age I'm getting older and I see it. I don't mind my age or who I see in the mirror, not as youthful as I once was but that's OK. In all the ups and downs I have had in life I wouldn't change a thing, not even the hard times for those have shaped me into who I am......

Life is a journey and I'm taking it one day at a time :)

I do hope you continue blogging. Reading your blog is a source of great encouragement and inspiration to me. It's a real blessing for me to read the thoughts and family adventures you share in your blog.

I would surely miss your posts Laura but a lot of your thoughts are mine. :) So glad that we can be long distance friends. Would love to see another picture of sweet Susanna and her mama.

I really enjoyed reading this...mainly because it amazed me how so many of the thoughts I've been having in my head showed up in your post!

PS: Keep blogging! :)

thanks for sharing... love reading... several of those in my noggin too. Olders and youngers but my youngest is 10. Miss those baby years and no grands.... missing 2nd son away at college... Uncle in colorado not doing well... oh how I want to be selfish and hang on to him for he reminds me of family and my dad...
need to laugh with the kids and sit outside...

well, look at me... just rambling too.

Love you.

Laura said...

I loved reading your thoughts. PLEASE don't stop blogging! :) Although I would completely understand if you decided to call it quits. I've considered it myself.

I love blogging and love reading the blogs but it does take time - - of which I don't have much free - - and tell myself I could be doing something more productive around the house - - - or to study God's Word - - - etc. My main goal with the blog was a "digital" scrapbook to share with family. It has definitely multiplied. Also, it seems to take longer to post than I would wish - - and then I feel guilty if I don't comment on other blogs - - - and I do like reading them and enjoy the new and "old" friends. Time for me to pray for wisdom again and seek God's face on it.
I would understand if you gave it up - - - but I would so very much miss hearing from you! You are an encouragement and inspiration to many of us. Even though it's the busy season of year coming up - - and life does go by too quickly, It will even out for you again when Susanna gets a little older.

Oh Laura. Please don't quit blogging. I would miss you, your posts, and pictures immensely.

Laura, I love your rambling thoughts. They could be mine, minus the nursing baby and cleaning the house more than ever ;-)

Sweet baby smell. Yes there really is nothing like it is there?!

I agree, you and Arthur need a date night. Better yet how about a teeny family time away to...maybe...umm... Iowa? haha! I miss you all so much.

Been praying for everything to go smoothly and still allow time for you to rest and enjoy sweet little Susanna ♥

This season shall pass and fall will be upon us. Hot tea, lovely candles, visits to Iowa (hint, hint) all mingled with God's amazing love ♥

{hugs} ~Cinnamon
no more blogging? Maybe a break till the move is done and you've settled into your new place. I'll send you lots of letters okay :-)

Awe Laura, You make me smile!
Yes, we are blessed by the blog & you all!
Keep enjoying these days...as they too shall pass in a blink! :)
Blessings & Hugs~

Dear sweet Laura, I really don't know how you've managed to blog this long with all you have going...large family, schooling, moving, business, new baby, birthday celebrations! And more rambling thoughts I'm sure that we don't even know about!

But all that to say that I would surely miss you if I couldn't click on Muncks Quiver and find out what your family is doing. (All my friends live in my computer!) :)

Blogging has become an instrument used to connect families that I never would have known all across the country. I'm very thankful that our family met your family through blogging so we could become friends.

Laura, As a momma of a large family myself, I find your blogs are very encouraging! But I also know that it takes time I would feel like a "dear friend" moved far, far away if you quit. You do as the Lord leads and I will cheer you on every step of the way!
