May is over and summer is here.


May is that tough month for us; we are super busy all month as many of you are as well. It's stressful, to say the least, and there's little time for me to catch my breath.

But there is something to be learned; stress can be revealing. After being pushed to my limit time-wise during May, I can look back now and see that I take on too much, that I over-commit my time to others without thinking of taking a break for myself. Everyone needs a break, especially us moms who dance so many different roles through each and every day

It's an odd blessing, but there it is - a little self-knowledge to carry forward into the next school year of volunteering opportunities.

I hope you feel blessed in some way, small or great, this week. Enjoy your Sunday!
