I’m so glad you found your way here to My Joy in Chaos. I’m Katie and I have a chaotic life! I know my life isn’t as crazy as other people’s but it definitely seems to have more moments of tornado level insanity than beach level relaxation! But I also wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve been married for nearly a decade now and we have five kids spanning six years. That’s the fact that usually gets us funny looks in the store as we all shuffle around. Our oldest is seven, then nearly six, three, and then one year old twins. Yes we are busy, yes we have our hands full, and yes we know what causes it 😉
As a stay at home mom I often get caught up in the every day struggle of dishes, laundry, cooking, refereeing, and all that other jazz and forget sometimes what a gift it all is. When friends ask me how I do it I don’t really know how to respond!
“Um, I just do?”
Because that’s the truth. I don’t know how I wouldn’t do it.
How do I stay sane is a totally different topic, though. I work to find joy each day. To find something that brings me happiness and helps me remember that I’m doing the Lord’s work, that I have a greater purpose, that fills me up.
Some days it’s as simple as an extra cup of coffee. Other day’s its a craft project. And others it’s sitting in the bathroom for a whole five minutes in peace before someone finds me.
I want to share the joy I find amidst the chaos that is everyday life. I hope you join me.
