relax and relief

The last two months of 2014 left me with a hangover the likes of which I have never experienced before.  My stress level was such in the weeks leading up to Christmas that it has taken me 12 days away from email, no less than 20 baths and a deep clean of the entire house to recover.  If there is one thing this past year has taught me is that I can't do all things---and do them all well---something has gotta give.   

May 2015 to be a year of finding balance, doing one thing at a time and devoting energy to the people and things that matter the most.

I think of you often Suzanne. I hope it doesn't seem weird, but I do pray for you and all that you have going on. My years of raising little ones while trying to be an artist were fraught with difficulty. And you have double the challenge with twins and are much farther down the road of your professional work than I. Still. It is hard to find that balance and I will continue to send up a prayer for you and your sweet family of artists. -Jennifer

Jennifer---you have no idea how much your words--and thoughts---mean. Thank you so, so much!

You can be a woman that does everything....you just can't do it all at once. Everything can wait, the children don't!

Amen, Janice.
