In the Eye of the Storm – Writing Challenge

Howdy mommas!  It’s been a hot minute since I hit publish on a blog post.  No reason, besides, well… life. Life has been busy, but that’s not a bad thing.  I wanted let you know that I wrote today.  Yes, me. It only look 15 minutes to sit and write.  My best friend challenged me to write and I thought I knew what I was going to write about.

Maybe remodeling a home with 3 kids, 4 and under… NOPE.

How to pack a home while living in it… NOPE

God’s plan…YUP

Sitting on the swing, listening to the birds, this is what hit my paper.  Not sure who it is for, but I decided to voice record it.  Enjoy!

Nothing fancy!
