Limited time.

I’m baaaack.

To work, that is. Being Annistyn’s mommy is my absolute favorite job in the world.

(Umm… how could it not be?!)

But now that maternity leave is over, I must return to real life.

As if adjusting to working motherhood isn’t enough, I decided to shake things up even more and start a new job.

If there’s ever been a time when I felt like I had limited time, it’s now. We’re only two days in, but boy do the nights disappear when there’s a meal to cook and clean up, a babe to cuddle, feed, bathe and kiss goodnight, a husband with which to share life… oh, and an alarm set for 5:30 a.m.

Needless to say, my free time spent online, reading, writing, or simply relaxing over a glass of wine has dwindled immensely. But I’m okay with that. Better than okay, actually! I can already tell it’s going to be tough but incredibly rewarding to balance career and family.

This new lifestyle is a perfect reminder that we’re all operating on limited time, yet He’s given us all the time we need. Use it carefully. And most of all, remember: life is not an emergency.

I’m choosing to savor the moments.

  1. Beautiful! My favorite part “This new lifestyle is a perfect reminder that we’re all operating on limited time, yet He’s given us all the time we need. Use it carefully. And most of all, remember: life is not an emergency.” is a perfect lesson for all of us.

    If anyone can balance career and family, it is you!

  2. Isn’t it wonderful being a mom? I enjoyed that time five times–however I was semi-retired from teaching for 41 years. My husband had to work so I kept the home front going. ha I know that you two wonderful parents will give your best to my dear great granddaughter, Annistyn. Do keep writing, too, Angie. Lots of love, Grandma Donna
