Five Minute Friday: Empty



At the end of the day I feel empty
I know that this conjures up a negative feeling
But empty is not always bad
Especially in the realm of housekeeping
A sink empty of dishes
Laundry baskets empty of clothes
A room empty of clutter
So when the day is through and my energy is gone
It is good

Perhaps emptiness then should be viewed as energy well spent
A sign of hope and purpose
For who does their laundry
Washes their dishes
Or tidies a room
Without a reason (or reasons!) to do so

Maybe emptiness means having poured yourself out for a reason
Maybe it means having lived fully
Maybe it means that
At the end of my life I would like to be able to say I am empty.

Normally, I cringe a bit when I see people write like this, but you make it so genuine and original that I end up enjoying it. :) I hope that came across the right way and not the wrong way. lol

Haha! I get it! I mostly do these because I need some motivation somedays to get thoughts and ideas out. But to be honest there have been many 5 minute Fridays I've attempted and didn't post because it ended up being a bunch of incoherent thoughts from an exhausted Mama! lol

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
