Brain cramps and sleep deprivation

John 10:10
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Another weekend has been rush, rush and filled with Christmas festivities. All the planning, hustle and bustle, and stress aside it is a great time of year.
Today was really busy for me, I tried to get my house clean. Dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing toilets and majorly picking up the house will help me be less disorganized over the next few days. I have so much to do, I have to wrap the gifts and even have 2 last gifts to purchase. I need to bake and cook.
I am feeling the difference 3 children make. There are so many thoughts that go through my head of things I would like to do for people but I just don't get them accomplished. I was up at 2:00am on Friday designing our Christmas cards. Then I laid in bed stressing from 3:00-4:00am about all I had to get done on Saturday!
I feel like I just can't get finished with my to do list. It's good though and so worth it. I'm just learning how to relax and let go. Bit by bit, I am making progress. I think I have improved since Bethany, but I have so far to go. The balance between caring about being organized, yet no obsessing. It's hard for me to not have things ready to go.
That's not what Christmas is about, and that is amazing!

Take a listen.
