Last week was a good week! I felt like I accomplished so much. My heart felt light, my feet were ready to take me where I needed to go, and my hands were busy.
Take a look at a few moments I captured with my camera.

This week I am not accomplishing as much as I wish, do to the fact that my tachycardia (fast heart rate) has flared up. I have dealt with it off and on for the past 13 years. After I had Lauren, I didn't have any trouble with my heart rate. But, this week has proven that it is still with me. Monday was especially difficult. I was extremely tired, could feel my heart racing and was short of breath, which in turn (sad to say) makes me a tad bit grouchy. Yesterday and today have been better and I am hoping for an even better day tomorrow. My children are especially hoping to wake up to find a less crabby momma. I had to ask for forgiveness several times times from my children. Thankfully they were willing to forgive and forget. I need to remember to slow down when the attacks start, to get a glass of water and sit down. Not to keep pushing through it and making it worse.
So, this week instead of crossing things off my list, I am hoping to focus on quieter activities. Like reading the rest of a book to Jacob that we started a few weeks back. And getting in lots of snuggles from my children. And focusing less on my to-to list and more on being still. Because I know the Lord is trying to reach me and teach me through this.
I just need to grab that glass of water, slow down, and listen.
