As you may have noticed, I have been conflicted as to how much I should continue with this blog. I have loved getting to know the ins and outs of blogging for fun and for a little extra income. I have loved the sponsors and the fans. I have loved the giveaways and product reviews. I have loved sharing our financial hardships and successes and the support I have received most of all.
It has become more and more clear that I can not raise my children effectively and prepare them in the ways they most need to be prepared when I give so much of my time to my blog and trying to have a side business. I haven't wanted to admit that to myself, let alone all of you, but now more than ever, I know what I need to do.
I need to be MOM. I need to TEACH my children to pray, love, learn, and to grow. I need to provide a loving home and give my time to them as well as give my time to the Lord. He has blessed me greatly with a beautiful family and with the ability to choose my own path, even if I don't always choose the right path. He is always forgiving and loving. Through my God given responsibilities as a mother and a wife, I can find my voice. I have often thought I needed to use my blog or else where to find my voice but the most effective place is with my husband and children in our home.
"No other success can compensate for failure in the home."
As I make this transition, I will be eliminating pretty much any and all posts regarding daily deals, ad match ups, and featured deals. I am letting you know now that I am leaving the blog up so that I can from time to time post something that matters to me and my family, our Epic Mickey, and some other tid bits on occasion. I plan on continuing a monthly post to help us as a family keep a record for our efforts and to keep our goal in view. If time permits, I may post once in a while on some other topics too but, first and foremost I am MOM and WIFE and will be intensely focusing on becoming a better mom and wife. I can forgive myself if I get behind on blogging, but if I get behind on being mom, that is time completely lost- whether I can forgive myself or not.
Thank you so much for your support over the years!
I wish you all the best with your family, finances, and faith!
I'm so grateful for the freedom to choose what to do with my life. That can never be taken away!
You do too, Choose wisely!
