Decluttering: mind, spirit and home

Good morning readers. I know I've been slacking on my posts but I happen to have a good reason. I've really gone back and forth over how to word all of my feelings lately. I'm realizing that there isn't really a perfect way so I'm just going to ramble a bit.

One of the reasons I haven't been posting much is that I haven't been getting comments lately. I feel like I'm talking to myself even when I know you guys are out there reading. I see you in my stats. I love all you lurkers out there but I like interaction also. This isn't the biggest reason I've been quite though and fear not because if you have been a lurker for years please know that I'm not quitting my blog. Just a little FYI before I continue. :-)

I basically had several life altering lessons hit me. Things I couldn't see before are now crystal clear. I have found my faith in God again with the help of some wonderful friends and an amazing pastor who makes getting to know God fun. I find that I'm getting through my days so much easier now with prayer from the moment my eyes open each morning to the moment I close them each night.

My thoughts are clearer and my mind is happier. Participating in 40 bags in 40 days has been beyond liberating. I took my first load to Goodwill yesterday. My house is transforming into a truly beautiful place. The kids are doing better with certain things as well.

So I've just been laying low. Trying to limit the time I spend online and focus on doing what I need to around our home. It's all good stuff. It's just kept me a little quieter around here.

And on a side note I LOVE Instagram. Here's a shot of my kitchen yesterday. Decluttering feels AMAZING!!
