I actually like Wednesdays and especially this Wednesday since I am off on Friday.

This is a big weekend with it being Easter and what Easter represents. He is Risen!

Easter also falls on my anniversary. I will have been married 6 years! My husband and I have been together almost 10 years. So hard to believe but so exciting too.

Last week on Wednesday I had a breakdown (ok, so maybe Wednesday wasn't so great last week). I just felt so overwhelmed looking at all the things to be done. You see, I work from home. Working from home is great but if you have a mess then you are sitting in the middle of it all day. By Thursday I had recovered somewhat and demanded that my husband help me clean on Saturday. Lucky for me he is a great guy and didn't need my demands - yes I need to learn self-control when I'm having a breakdown - and was more than willing to help. We got a lot done in our closet and drawers and a little done in my sewing room/office. But there's still much to be done in my work space.

Earlier this year, I decided to turn our home office in to my sewing room/office. This is the room I do my sewing in and also the room I do my day-job in. We moved things back and forth between two rooms and what was left was an unorganized mess. Slowly things are getting put where they belong. I can't wait to have organization again. It is so hard for me to focus in clutter.

I suspect though, that my breakdown represented something a little deeper last week. God has been doing big things in my life over the last few months. He needed me to hit a low-point so he could lift me back up and that he did. I began reading "Captivating" by John and Stasi Eldredge on Wednesday in the middle of my weakness. I have just a few pages left to read - I'm almost sad that there isn't more. It has been an amazing book. So much of the struggles the book describes are right on with me. I highly recommend this book for women.
