The other day I promised on July 1 I would do a mid-year review of my New Year's resolution, to "Do What {I} Love." Well, I then went AWOL and returned, forgetting my plan to give myself a mid-year grade.

I remember now. And I give myself a B. I am doing what I love, plenty of it. But there are still some things that I need to work on. I am a busy, busy lady. Some things fall by the wayside. These things include working out, working on my writing career, keeping up with photo albums, scrapbooks and baby books. Finding clothes that fit, ridding the house of clutter.

My reasons why I should do all of these things and my reasons why I just don't have time are the same: these four gorgeous kids are keeping me on my toes all the time. I'm doing a lot of laundry and dishes, I promise you. And I'm kissing a lot of boo-boos, wiping a lot of tears, doling out hugs like crazy. I'm mothering.

Mothering takes a lot of time, passion, love and patience. In spite of all of the things I'm not getting done, I am doing this--day in, day out, I am mothering these reasons.

So, I guess I am doing okay on that resolution. While life isn't perfect, I am "doing what I love" most of the time. And that means I'm winning.
