I blog....

One of my favorite things to do is lock our front door for the night.
The Little Nies asleep in their beds, the kitchen closed, 
toys put away, my bed and Mr. Nielson awaiting me.
With the lock of the door I imagine locking the world out of our life.
No more friends, homework, or computers.
No more phones, TV, worldly fears, disappointments,
or mean comments on my social media outlets.
I have made it clear to my children that I want our home a safe place.
A sanctuary of sorts-- for anyone who steps foot here.
That means, I will fiercely defend and protect it
by any means necessary.
Sometimes its hard for me to blog and put my life out there everyday.
Just a reminder, I blog for my children,  I blog for my posterity, and
I blog to honor God.
If you don't like how I do things, or the way I mother my children,
 I am not making you follow me.
I am not begging for more readership.

Being a mother is my greatest calling and joy in life.
No one will ever take that away from me.
No mean comment can deter me from my job-
you can try, and yes, sometimes you can make me cry,
but you will NEVER EVER stop me.  I will keep plugging away,
and it looks like that will make a few of you really mad, so enjoy that.
