For several years our family was in complete survival mode. The organization and tight schedules we once had (and I prided myself on) were set aside for each of us to heal. Grieving alongside 4 children and getting us all to a point which we could begin finding a new normal was a huge struggle. I used to be the master scheduler but for so long I honestly didn’t know where to begin, how much to do, or when to stop. All I knew was to take one step at a time. As we began to work our way into a new routine I learned to just do the next thing. Every day for us is different. We work around farming, therapy, co-ops, sports, and the list goes on because it seems like there is always something interrupting our “normal.” So more than a schedule we have a routine – what I like to call our “Grace Plan.” I start my day with the top 3 things I have to absolutely do (& this changes from season to season). *Laundry is always one of the three.
