When I take time to create, I am whole and more at peace doing everything else.

Like most mothers, my weekends are chaos. I look so forward to “getting things done” and often despair when only a fraction is accomplished. There is the forever tug-of-war between quality family time, keeping a sanitary living space, and the ever elusive me-time.

This weekend was like most. I washed a heap of clothes, got a bit of painting done and snuggled on the couch with my kids on “family movie night”. Not too shabby if you ask me. When I make the time to create, I am whole and more at peace doing everything else.
