There was a time in my life when I was fairly certain that blogging every day was impossible. Actually, that time was yesterday. And five minutes ago.
Tonight, after picking up a pile of toys and finding myself with an hour before I needed to put Micah to bed, I got inspired. An hour of free time people, this is what inspires me. I decided to take a leap of faith and jump in on The Nester's 31 day blogging challenge for the month of October.
The only kicker... we are supposed to choose one topic to blog on for the whole month.
I struggled for like... 10 seconds, then I remembered a blog post I started last week and literally quit writing because I couldn't condense it to just one area of my life. This is more than just a topic for me. It is an attempt at reminding myself every day, for the next 31 days, of the need for contentment in my life.
In my home. In my marriage. In my relationships. In my finances. In my abilities. In my day to day life of being a stay-at-home mom.
I can't promise it won't be messy. I can't promise that I won't be hiding in a corner afraid to share the real-life dirt that is going on in my heart. But I promise you this - I will do my best. Because I believe that God has a purpose for every story. And in 31 days, hopefully you will see the purpose in mine.
