Had 14 tweens and teens in the house tonight for a little winter break fun. I’m beat. We’re pretty blessed though, our kids have an awesome peer group and we’re friends with most of their parents. A few of the moms and I sat around drinking coffee and over-sharing. I love that about these people though, no one is afraid to share and be real, we just put it out there and support each other. We talked everything from our childhood to racism to teens and cell phones, and lots in between. My heart is full. 

Fasting is still going ok, I feel the need to step up my game for the remainder, maybe no meat, no dairy, no sweets for my one meal. Like a Daniels fast. Maybe a few every other day full fasts. I don’t know yet. 

The social networking hiatus is still going strong. I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoy not being on fb or insta so much. I feel like I have more time and more peace. I don’t think  I will ever be at a place where I don’t have the accounts, but maybe I can bring myself to check it once a week, scheduled, disciplined. 

I also enjoy writing more, seems a bit boring tonight, I have lots of thoughts going through my mind but I’m losing steam and I’ve vowed to post once a day for the first 21 days of January. 

Tonight I’m grateful for my family and friends, they make life so sweet. Here’s a picture of how I caught my daughter doing dishes today.
