It’s hard to believe another month is almost over! We’ve had a great one here with a getaway to Kanas City, spring break and birthday celebrations. I’m linking up with Heather Gerwing for another month of Share Four Somethings!
I’m loving my new blog layout. I’m not sure I’ll ever be 100% content, but this is the closest I’ve gotten to the website that sits in my head. WordPress has so many cool template options, but you still have to know how to place things on pages and connect links.
We had the opportunity to spend the weekend with some of our favorite coaching families spread across the country at the beginning of March.
We spent time laughing and catching up, and we celebrated the 50th of someone special, my husband’s college coach. I write about Andy’s impact some here. It was an important reminder for us to listen to others speak as well as reflect on our own story. A Football Coach’s impact can reach far and last a lifetime.
I learned that I’ve hit maximum capacity. After a year of saying no to volunteering and other activities, I felt a release to step back into life a bit and before I knew it I had more on my plate than I could accomplish. Thankfully Powersheets is helping me keep a great perspective on what my actual goals should include. (Hint…I’ve added back to my list to say no)
Legacy is not a buzzword in our family, it is calling, but it’s hard to know if you are building the right legacy most days. I loved this post from Kristen Strong How to Build a Life Remembered by Others was just what I needed to hear.
Here’s a preview:
“Perhaps like you, I learned in the early morning hours of February 21st that Billy Graham had died at 99 years of age. And as my daughter and I wound our way through the slushy, snowy roads toward her school that day, we listened as our radio station payed tribute to this man who for so many was a hero of the faith. One of the radio co-hosts mentioned that while she couldn’t say Billy Graham’s gospel sharing had specifically crossed her own walk of faith, he reminded her of key people in her life who’s sharing did. Through remembering Billy Graham, she remembered those people who spoke life and hope to her along the way.” Read the rest on Kristen’s blog.
