Spinning Plates

Appearances are deceiving.  On the outside, I appear put together, in control.  Behind closed doors, I am an exhausted, frazzled, mess.  The plates I spin are crashing to the ground.  Though I may appear to be Wonder Woman, I am not.  The images you see on Facebook paint a pretty picture of life at the Ranch.  In reality, my house is a mess, my clean laundry is in baskets not in drawers, my bills are often late, and I yell A LOT.  I don't have it all together.  I procrastinate, stuff, and ignore hoping the bad will go away.  I also pray, A LOT!  That is me, in a nutshell, imperfect, flawed, wanting to live honestly.


  1. Hey! I do the same stuff and I only have two kids (grown now) and not as many animals. That prayer really works; it allows me to put things in true perspective. If you haven't discovered it yet, in your quiet time go to This lady is a farmer's wife in Canada, raising and homeschooling six kids; she has written a book and blogs everyday. Some of her stuff is pretty awesome. ---Lisa M
