Better at What?

When the computer is on......I'm a better blogger.
When the computer is on....I'm a better writer.
When the computer is on....I'm a better keep in toucher.
When the computer is on....I'm a better up to date with the newser.
When the computer is on....I'm a better salesperson.
When the computer is on...I'm a better face booker.
When the computer is on....oh-let's face it....

When the computer is off....I'm a better house keeper.
When the computer is off...I'm a better wife.
When the computer is off....
I'm a better Mommy!

It's going off. Sorry if I'm not good at blog posts-or emails-or face book posts-or keeping up with listing new things on my business. Yesterday I restrained myself and kept the computer off all day. It was a good day of school and snuggling and reading books and cups of tea and tickling and cleaning and loving my family. It only happens that way when the computer is off. My mind wants to remind me that my blog is somehow an obligation..that I started an etsy shop and should be more diligent...that people have emailed and I need to respond. But the truth is that loving and caring for my family should always come first and no matter how many things I do better with the computer on...

When the computer is off..I'm a better Mommy!
 So..the computer is going off and I'm off to be a better Mommy!

Have a blessed day!!


  1. I have been feeling that way alot and when the computer is on I have a thousand excuses for NOT spending time in HIS word!

  2. Oh what a good reminder! And SO true!
