Overwhelmed!!!  Ever feel that way?  That seems to describe my life at the moment.  So much to do and so little time to do it all.  Is that really the problem, or is the problem me?  Am I overwhelmed simply because I don't take time to plan things out properly?  In college I learned this saying, "Proper, prior planning prevents poor performance."  When I look back over my day I realize I could have gotten up when my alarm went off instead of sleeping in for an extra 20 minutes.  It's so much easier to get things done while the children are still sleeping.  Then I think, "but I was tired."  Why was I so tired?  That may have been the result of staying up too late. Why do I do this to myself?  Something needs to change.  I need to change.

Maybe this feeling is because my focus is wrong.  Perhaps instead of focusing on all I have to do, I should be focusing on the people in my life.  These three people to be exact!

Lord, please guide me each day and put my focus where it belongs.

Beth, I know the feeling! Sometimes I get so bogged down with my list and forget the people in my life (and hitting the snooze button is a problem for me, too!) Great reminders! Thanks!

I definitely stay up too late. I'm trying to get up earlier but I should probably start with the bedtime!

Glad you are blogging again!
