It Takes a Village

In case I haven't mentioned this before, I'm on my own a lot.  Hubby works full-time and farms with his dad so he's pretty much home to eat (occasionally) and sleep (sometimes).  He tries to help me out when he's able to, but the poor guy works so hard that he spends his small amount of time at home either relaxing on the couch or playing with the kids to try to make up for the fact that he hasn't seen them in two days.  So for the most part, I'm doing this whole parenting thing on my own. 

You can read an updated version of this post here on my new blog, Sunshine and Spoons! I hope to see you there!


  1. I love that proverbs.. A woman of noble character. :)

  2. I think we put the pressure on ourselves to do it all, because, we know how hard it is. We don't want to burden anyone else, we don't want to look like we've bit off more than we could chew, we want to make our families happy and do it happily. Admitting you need help sometimes, it feels like defeat in a way. Your logical, sane side of the brain says that it's normal and you're only human, but, that ambitious, loving, bit more emotional side of the brain is defeated that you couldn't juggle everything and make it look easy.

    Loved this post and will come back to it often!

  3. What a great post! I really need to remember that part about being able to bless someone by accepting their offer of help. Asking for help is a huge struggle for me. It sounds like you handle requesting help with such grace and how wonderful that you have so many people you can bless by doing so :)


Thank you for your comment! I read and appreciate every one.
