Curve Balls of Life

Curve Balls of Life

Life.

As soon as we think we’ve got it figured out, here comes the curve ball.

The Curve Balls of Life - Modern Momma Musings

Yes, life is an ever-changing, keep-you-on-your-toes kind of thing.

But while it is crazy at times, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Things slow down and get back to “normal” and we go about our days in less fluster and more confidence.

For me, this takes a couple weeks to find the new “normal”.

After the transition period, it seems to plateau and we get into a routine which helps everyone make it through the days without the stress.

However, summer never seems to get to that point.

There is always some curve ball coming our way.

There never seems to be a “normal” in summer. Between camps, different practice schedules and everything else it seems there is always something changing our normal routine.

This summer has been no different. In fact if anything it has become more crazy than before. Finding our summer grove has been hard.

We are now 2 weeks into our summer schedule and I am still running around with my head cut off!

While I am hopeful it will get better, the schedule looks more crazy as we get into the next few months. That light keeps getting dimmer.

Somehow we  will figure it out, we will persevere and transition to the next thing.

Writing may not be at the top of my list right now, but I know that the feeling of wanting to write is coming on strong. It may be hit or miss for the next few months because of the craziness, but I am hopeful we will get back into our new schedule and life will be “normal” again.

Until that point, I’ll be off and on here when I can catch my breath and put words together.

After taking a month and a half off over the crazy holiday season, I am feeling refreshed and ready for the new year. Life was getting a bit overwhelming so a break let me spend my extra time with the ones that need me most, my kiddos.

Make Me An Instrument of Your Peace

Make Me An Instrument of Your Peace

Instrument of your Peace - Modern Momma Musings

Some prayers you’ve known all your life, others you learn and love when you least expect them.

One of my favorite prayers from childhood and up to this day is the Prayer of St. Francis:

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

Audio Adventure’s Done Right – Captain Bayley’s Heir Review

Long drives. Quiet time. Just because. These are only a few times we use audio books. Sometimes, even a classic book, can be easier to understand when read via audio book.

Heirloom Audio Productions - Captain Baileys Heir - review - Modern Momma Musings

In addition to books, you can use podcasts and audio adventures. Our favorite line of audio adventures is definitely the Heirloom Audio Productions adventures. We have enjoyed many of them already (you can read our reviews here) and we just had the opportunity to listen to their newest addition Captain Bayley’s Heir.
