Hi! I’m Lisa! I am a mother, wife, daughter, caregiver and friend. These roles I put myself into are good and rewarding, but the most important role is to be me. Creating this blog is just the beginning and I look forward to sharing it with you! To be honest, this is the second running of a blog that only lasted a couple of days. Why? Because I convinced myself that I do not have time for this. What is that phrase? Something about needing to make the time? Truth is, I was making excuses for not taking care of myself, which is easy to do, especially in my role as a caregiver to my two awesome sons! Will I not be a better caregiver and set a good example for others, offering inspiration, by simply diving on in and not looking back?
I have often told myself that I cannot make a difference because I am home so much. This is simply not true. Do we not make a difference by being all we can be, all God created us to be? Do we not make a difference by serving with our hearts on fire and loving others?
Like everyone else, I have dreams. Dreams of running marathons, writing books and doing something really big. This is a good thing but I have let it make me lose sight of who I can be today, right now. Bloom where I am planted. The road I am on may eventually meet up with the road where these big dreams are the destination, but if not, that is okay too.
For those of you that read my short lived blog, thank you and bless you. And for the rest, God bless you and I am excited to walk this path with you!
