Guess what?!? Week two of Women Living Well Peace on Earth Challenge is upon us! This week the challenge is to take a bubble bath. Soooo simple right? Yes...and no. How often do we as moms put ourselves to the background? A LOT. Sometimes ALWAYS! I'm not saying that the mom's that put themselves before the kids 100% of the time have it right either. They don't. But in nursing school I had a teacher tell me that If I don't take care of myself than eventually I'm not going to be able to look after others either. How true. Eventually I'm going to hit a wall. And that wall...will probably come at the worst possible moment. Like the Holidays....dun dun dun....
So this week I am going to give myself a little peace. When Lucian goes down for his nap (not at night since that is when I talk to my husband) I am going to climb my little behind into the bathtub with a candle lit and my bible. Maybe some classical music. Lights turned down. Maybe a peaceful book to enjoy. My husband is super awesome about sending me to rest when I wear down. He's a good man. With him gone, I'm not so good about it. So here goes nothing. A week where I put the mom guilt back where it belongs and enjoy some time of peace in both body and soul to prepare the way of the Lord.

A military wife is mostly girl. But there are times, such as when her husband is away and she is mowing the lawn or fixing a youngster's bike, that she begins to suspect she is also boy. She usually comes in three sizes: petite, plump and pregnant. During the early years of her marriage it is often hard to determine which size is her normal one. She has babies all over the world and measures time in terms of places as other women do in years.
I'm a 23 year old wife and mom trying to find a place in the world. I'm my husband's mistress since he's married to the army. I love to read, cook, and eat, not necessarily in that order. I live, I laugh, I cry, and sometimes I even get it right.
