Learning My Limits: Tiffany Lucus Says Goodbye for Awhile

If I had to tell you my biggest weakness, it would be knowing my limits. I’m all or nothing and I don’t stop. Growing up, “lazy” was worse than any four letter word. But the time has come for me to slow down. It is not easy but fortunately I have gracious friends who are helping me gently step away for a bit.
The winter months for my job are insane. Sixty hours happen on the slow weeks. Yet that can not be the norm right now. I’m having to learn to go home, delegate and let others do some of the work for me. I have a little human bumping around in my stomach and she reminds me that there is a time to go home, and it’s okay if that happens before seven in the evening.
I guess there might be a season where not doing everything is okay. Accepting help, apparently, is something I need to be doing. In the midst of my lesson in accepting help, Ian has graciously offered to lend a hand while I take a few months off from writing on the blog.
Don’t get me wrong, I love writing, and, more importantly I love writing here. I appreciate everyone who has taken a moment to read my little corner of the Internet and your comments have helped me through so much.
I’m not going away forever, and, if all goes well, you should hear from me again in February. I just need to take some extra time to focus on my growing family, my crazy job, and put my feet up every now and then.
While I’m learning to ask for help, I’m going to ask for yours. If you think of it over the next few months, I’d love your prayers. These next few months are going to be intense and I know that some extra prayers will certainly help me out.
I will miss you all while I’m gone, and can’t wait to catch up when I return.
