1. I just wanna get on a plane and come to see you just so I can give you a giant hug!!!! But I can’t. So just know that I want to 🙂

  2. Hi Sandy,
    I am fairly new to our blog and enjoy it so much. I read my Proverbs 31 devotional this morning via email and your blog. They both hit me like a brick. I have been in a funk over these last few days about my purpose and really questioning what the heck am I doing, what should I be doing and most importantly what God wants me to be doing!!!! Your blog is so refreshing and so funny at times. It makes me think and that is a good thing. Thank you for your words of wisdom this morning:)

    1. Amy,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I’m relieved to hear you found this post “refreshing,” as I wasn’t sure how it would be received. I, too, subscribe to P31 devos. I will need to go back and read the one from the day I posted this. I missed it.


  3. Sandy,
    I laughed out loud at your kids comments and how their minds were working. 🙂 I think your question is one we all ask from time to time. “Am I making a difference? Does what I do have any impact at all? Where do I stand in all this?” I don’t know the answer except to know you are worthy and you obviously do great at the things you have chosen to do. I try not to think about this much but I made choices with my career that made me pass up promotions and higher positions and certainly much more money for things I judged more worthy of my time and efforts; mainly my family. Even so I sometimes ask the same questions? Does anybody care? What are my accomplishments? I don’t know.
    I do know they were my decisions and I own them. I also know we do a poor job in our mind of keeping score and in truth we should not. I believe that in the freedom of our choices we are still bound each one of us to seek God’s truth and set about responding in obedience to it. If we do I think it won’t be perfect but it will be worthy.

    1. I agree with you, Mark. In the end, it’s really about walking in obedience to where we thing God is leading us. If we do that, we should be able to live without regret.

  4. LOVE this! Not that you were sad, but that you let yourself be sad and came through it with God at your side. We’ve all been there, you just articulated it better then others could! And I love me some mashed potatoes….with butter….and cheese….and salt and pepper…..

  5. I can so relate to this!

    Two years ago while I was still staying at home, (and watching kids before and after school to bring in a little cash) my kindergartner and his friend were having a discussion (right in front of me) about moms who work (his friend’s mom does and that was what his friend knew and was used to) and those who don’t. And my darling little boy, all 6 years old and cuteness, says OUT LOUD IN FRONT OF ME 3 FEET AWAY, “Yeah, my mom’s pretty boring, she doesn’t do much.” And then said boys walked off to play after I had fed them breakfast, gotten the older ones off to school, cleaned up the kitchen, and was preparing to have a morning of other assorted chores before feeding kids lunch and getting them to afternoon kindergarten.

    I literally sat at the kitchen table for the next 15 minutes and seriously contemplated my value, self-worth, choices, and whether or not I was truly a boring individual. 🙂

    I hear from my full time working mom friends that the mommy guilt sometimes nearly does them in…..especially the ones that travel often.

    I don’t know the answers either, but sometimes chocolate helps;)

    1. Mindy–I agree the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. My stay-at-home mom friends often feel like they are supposed be out doing something. And my working mom friends wish they could be home.

      I’ll go look for some chocolate now…

  6. Such a timely message for me! Thank you for sharing your life with us, and being God’s hands and feet and voice at the same time.
