Welcome to Graceful Feet!

You are probably thinking, "graceful feet, what?" Well, I want this blog to cover all aspects of my life. My goal is to be able to walk through all things with grace and dignity. Hence the name, "Graceful feet." I was also a dance major in college and left that life to become a mom and wife.

The reason that I decided to start this blog is because I had a really bad day yesterday and I need someplace that I can express my thoughts and feelings. I don't have many friends and the ones that I do have I don't want to bother with my burdens. They have busy lives, too.

I think that I try to be good at everything and find that I'm not good at anything. First and foremost, I want to be a good child of God. I still consider myself a baby Christian. I have a lot of growing to do in that area. I try to surround myself with woman that are spiritually strong and can kind of guide me along the way. I also recently joined an online Bible study that I am really excited about. It's based on the book "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" by Joanna Weaver.

Next, after 10 years of marriage, I'm still learning how to be a good wife. I recently learned that my husband thought that I wanted a divorce for the last 6 months. All of this time, I thought we had a great marriage and that we were on the same page. I know it's not perfect, but those thoughts have never even crossed my mind. There are some other issues behind his reasons for thinking that, but we will go into that another day. Just note, I have never nor will I ever contemplate divorce. It's not even in my vocabulary. No matter what we go through now and in the future, we will fix it.

I am also learning how to be a good mother. Ha, I learn something new everyday. All I know is that I want what is best for my children. I want them to be happy, healthy and to grow up with good character and qualities.

During the day, I am a teacher. I home school Jonaya and plan on doing the same with Ian. It's hard to stay disciplined and to make sure she gets her work done. Some days, neither one of us want to get anything done. I'm always wondering in the back on my mind if I am doing enough.

Along with this, I am trying to keep the household running smoothly. I will tell you now that I'm not the best housekeeper, but I'm learning. I'm trying to get the kids to pitch in, so it doesn't all fall on me. Sometimes, I also feel guilty for being home when I can be out working and providing a better life (financially) for my family. I do work part time, when times allows me to answering phones for a company from home.

That is an awful lot of hats for one person to wear. Yes, I try to be the best at all of them. I search for better ways to do these things everyday.

So, join me on my different walks of life while I try to do them with, "Graceful Feet." I may post everyday, several times a day, or less often than that. Feel free to post comments.

  1. I can so relate to what you have said about the "many hats" we wear. I struggle on a daily basis to find my way. I wish we were not separated by so many miles- we could help each other find our way. :)
