Finding balance

Gosh I feel so bad for such a scant number of posts this year.
We are studying this year and while first semester went very well, it is so time consuming to do it properly. We have started second semester and are questioning the balance we have in our lives.
We have had hardly anytime living the life we enjoy so much,  I have not kept in contact with friends, not even via emails, which I haven't opened for weeks now, last glance there was nearly 2000 and I'm too over whelmed to sort through them! The children have been unwell with the cold-y flu-y things that are everywhere at the moment and even we have struggled with odd symptoms ourselves, exhaustion, nausea, dizziness and headaches.
 So here's the thing that has come to our attention, we can't do it all at the 100% attention we would like. We are trying to find a balance so there are no losers in our efforts.

We have limited hours left in our life, how do we want to spend them?
Priorities for us: God, each other, family, providing for family, lots of play with children, time with adult children, gardening so we can eat nutritious food, handicrafts and study for future career and mission work.

So something has to give, we are prioritising and practically looking at what we need to change.
When is the last time you did a "check", don't wait until the wheels fall off the wagon, so to speak.

Here's some flowers youngest begged Daddy to buy for me, it took him 10 mins to choose a bunch!
