How often do you find yourself living for ” someday”. You know the “someday I….”.
I’ve been guilty of trying to live in “someday” for most of my life. Someday I will go to college. Someday I will get married, have kids and a dream house. Someday I’ll have time to pursue that dream. Someday I’ll check _____ off my bucket list.
I am a strong Type A personality. I love setting goals and checking them off the list. I have a hard time people make changes to my plans! (How dare they! Ha Ha!)
Having a Type A personality has it’s advantages. I’m driven and focused most of the time. But it also has its downfalls, too.
I have a hard time remembering to enjoy the process of life. The speed bumps in the road. The detours, missed turns, and changes in the agenda (that sometimes are the best thing that could have happened).
My kids are growing up quickly. 4 years ago, I remember thinking someday my kids will be older and I can….
Guess what? Now that they’re older and sleeping through the night, able to shower without help, and get their own snacks I miss those chubby baby legs, toothless smiles, and cuddles.
Dreams and goals are important but tomorrow is never guaranteed.
Embrace today. Enjoy the speed bumps and take a back road instead of the regular route. Breathe in that summer air, play catch with the kids, and enjoy a root beer float. Life’s too short to not embrace today. Live like it’s your last. Love like you feel in your heart. Enjoy your life, it’s the only one you’ll get!
Hi ladies! Welcome to Women With Intention Wednesdays!
Welcome to a new week of Women With Intention! I’m very excited to introduce you to this week’s featured blogger, Jess from Faithful Farmwife. I relate to so much of what she blogs about that I’m very happy to feature her post 10 Ways To Serve With Your Kids this week.
Welcome to Women With Intention Wednesdays!
Here is what you will find at Women With Intention Wednesdays:
- This is a link up party where you come to encourage one another, have fun, and share your best posts to help women live their best life!
- In other words, any post that you have written about Christian living, homemaking, relationships, healthy living, living a frugal life or that helps another woman can be included in this link up! Please just them family friendly (I reserve the right to remove anything that I feel isn’t appropriate).
- This link up is beneficial for every woman! Whether you are a blogger or a reader, this is one you won’t want to miss! I’m very excited to offer this link up as a place to not only build new relationships between bloggers but also by providing an awesome resource of information for my readers!
Here are the rules of this link up:
- You must link directly to your post (no homepages, please).
- Please link up no more than 2 posts each week and please do not link up the same post week after week.
For every link you add, please visit the link before you and one other of your choice. If your links are consecutive visit the blogger before you and your choice for the 2nd link. It’s impossible to build relationships when no one communicates! Please don’t link and run!
- By linking up you give me permission to share your posts and photos on this blog and social media. Each week I will choose a featured blogger and possibly another post such as the most popular post. I will only feature you and the most popular posts if you have followed the rules (otherwise I’ll move on to the next most popular post). All features will be linked back to the original source.
- You also give me permission to email you a quick reminder that the party is live. You may opt out anytime. I don’t spam my readers with emails.
- Answer the community building question below so we all get to know each other! That’s the purpose of being here! 🙂
I’d love for you to add a button to help spread the word about Women With Intention Wednesdays (thank you)!
If you were featured, please feel free to grab this button!

Community Building Question: The 4th of July is quickly approaching for those of us in the U.S. What is one tradition or favorite memory you have regarding the 4th?
My Grandfather passed away when I was 12 years old so my kids obviously never met him. However, they share a very common bond with him in the fact that they love fireworks! One of my favorite traditions about the 4th is to remember my Grandfather and talk to the kids about “Grandpa Al and his fireworks” passing on fun things I remember about him. And I love a good barbecue! 😉
Have you enjoyed what you read here today? Do you have friends or other women you know that could benefit from this resource? If so, please do me a favor! I have included the links below to share with other intentional women! They’ll be glad you did!
