I had lots I wanted to blog about today, but the hours slipped away.  My days seem to be full to the brim and I am working just about as hard as I can, but still coming up short at the end of the day.  There seem to be very few check marks on my “to – do” list.

How about you?  Is this a productive time for you, or do you feel like you are running on a hamster wheel?

Hopefully I’ll see you all tomorrow.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Definitely hamster wheel. And I only have 2. (18 and 2 months). But God is good and helping me get used to the hamster wheel. And I don't doubt for a min when I have more I will think "I had so much time then!"

    what a fun surprise…i can't think of the last time i won a contest! and with a real, purposeful prize…many thanks!!! i'll email you. to answer your question, i am making difficult, decisive changes in life this season…never feels like a hamster wheel, although sometimes like a roller coaster, looping back just to start anew. hoping it is productive and builds strength for the season when i need that most.
