Organizing Life... My Main Priority.


Remember my motto? My Priorities are Organized, My Closets are not... yes, well, if you don't remember it, that's okay. I've managed to be very aloof around blogland for the last 2 months. Somehow my absence has sparked an incredible outpouring of concern and well wishing and you can't imagine how completely wonderful it is to know that I'm missed! My readers are the BEST! ANYWHERE!

So, for those you itching to know why Pretty Organizer disappeared, I will do my best to do what I do best... Preach. Yep, if there's one thing I'm good at it's letting ya'll know what you should be doing. My kids think I ought to be making money out of this preaching business because they get my preach'n all the time!

I have had a few priorities that have need'ed some serious tending to here at the Palace. I have wonderful children, however 3 of them are going through a rough spot right now in life and need some extra TLC, prayers, and attention. To tell you the truth, this mother has been on her knees pleading with the Good Lord for inspiration on how to parent each of these children. It's a dang shame that you can work for YEARS on understanding your kid and guiding them to make good choices but that each kid requires a different approach and owners manuals... multiply that out by 6 and you have my life. My kids all came to earth without their owners manual, so I'm kneeling a lot.

While I love blogging and have made dear friends across the world, those little punk-a-noodles come absolute first in my life and going to bed post midnight isn't cutting the mustard for this mother of 6. I was beginning to look like my grandmother (I'm only 35!). So, I'll be around but less consistently than I was before.

In case you'd like to poke around the Palace for some of my best posts, here are some links you may like:

Feel free to look around at my other labels and see what interests you. I'll update things from time to time but until I feel like blogging is a priority, I may be absent a bit.  As always, I love hearing from you all.  If you ever have any questions, I DO check in to my email and will do my best to get back to you all.

God bless you dear hearts of blogland and I hope my preach'n wears off on those who need to organize priorities, whatever they may be.

I completely understand! Best of luck with the parenting. I liken it to psychological warfare. : )

So glad to hear a mom who has her priorities straight. We forget sometimes that blogging is a hobby and not a job. I've seen a few people who think child-rearing is a hobby. tsk! tsk!
You have my blessings... and prayers, young mama.
Hugs,

Appreciate the update. As President Uchdorf said, "Hang on just a little longer." We are all in this together.

Stacey said...

Thanks so much for the update. I was a bit worried. :) I totally understand needing to take a break and re-focus on our families.

southerninspiration said...

you've def. chosen the right priorities....blogging IS fun but can take over and fill in when what we really need to be doing is home stuff. There's a LOT of home stuff to be done, right? So I completely understand, but I have missed you and your witty self! Let us know how things are going!

Glad everyone is doing 'okay'. Praying for you to have lots and lots of wisdom with those sweet 'babies' of yours.

Andrea Hardman said...

I'll be here when you get back!

Lisa said...

Oh how I wish mine had come with owners manuals, and some days I wish a money back guarantee.... I still wouldn't trade them for the world but am thankful after all these years they seem to be returning to human form again. Hang in there, know I am sending happy thoughts your way. If it helps my house is a disaster and I don't care, family comes first!

ajandkj said...

I was delighted to see you had a new blog post. Like all who have made comments, I understand about making sure we prioritize the most important. I am just glad that you are still around and will look forward to any other tips and tricks you have in the future!

May God keep blessing you.

Stacy said...

I can't tell you how happy I was to see this post! I love your blog and have missed hearing from you. I'm glad to know you are still around and are caring for your family the way they need. Hugs!

Here I have been absent myself, and I was seriously excited to get back to blogland to see what my favorite organized lady has been up to! I'm glad everything is ok. Good luck with those kiddos!

Carrie said...

Hope and pray that God is giving you the guidance you need for your kids. He's the best one to answer when our hands are up in the air in surrender.

God bless you!

Emily said...

God bless your family! You're doing the right thing!
