Neglect

Since we received the news we would be moving to Idaho, my life has been a non stop whirl wind. Every spare minute I have goes to advertising the house, packing up boxes, sorting through things we don't need to take and so on and so forth.  To be honest, I'm having a hard time keeping up with everything. Between Korbin, school, speech, t-ball, moving, preschool and day to day life-- I'm drowning. I can get a few things done, but not all of it. And sadly enough, the things that are getting pushed aside are the really important things. My kids. Taydens reading. Becketts Speech. Caches potty training. It's infuriating. 

Today as Scott and I were cleaning the house for an appointment with a realtor, which ended up standing us up, the phrase "Put your house in order" kept playing in my mind. I was doing just that, cleaning up and getting things in order.

Then, I realized. Not that kind of order. Order with family. We pray every night for help to sale the house and I know we need to be consciously making the right decisions to be blessed. I am a firm believer that faith without works is dead. So, I stopped everything I was doing and put my house in order. I got on the floor with my kids and started crafting a turtle box for Taydens sea creatures. I want them to know that no matter what else is going on they are special and important. We cut and glued and had fun until it wasn't. 

I want to sale this house more than anything. I want to go up to Idaho no strings attached and start our life there. But I know, that nothing matters more than my family. Not even selling this house. Because in the end, its my family. Not the house, or cars or anything else. But my family. 

I hope not to neglect this blog anymore than I already have, but if I do, I apologize in advance. Things are only going to get more and more crazy, and as long as I remember to keep things in the right order, I know we will be blessed.
