Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to find someone who was struggling and to find a way to help.  We had a few opportunities come our way, but one involved a friend was is making some big life changes.  We got to help paint a new place for her.  Rex asked if he could help and he was pretty proud of his work.  No worries - it was only the primer.

This week's challenge is to walk away from something time consuming for a while.  Let me explain.


This is one I kind of need.  I remember a few years ago before blogging my husband and I would surf the net and then we'd get sick of it and declare that we had "come to the end of the internet."  Well, recently I've come realize that I don't ever come to the end of the internet anymore.  There are always emails to answer, posts to write, pinterest to search, and other blogs to read.  Sometimes it's overwhelming.  So, I'm going to try to stay away for a few days.  I have posts written ahead of time, but it I don't get back to your emails or questions you'll know why.  Sorry!

As far as the challenge goes, maybe it's a different thing for you.  Maybe it's turning off the TV more to get something done.  Maybe it's dropping something to spend a little extra time with the kids.  I think it's always good to step back and reevaluate at times.

So, did anyone find a way to help someone last week?  I love reading your experiences.   Thanks for being here.
