All things considered it went fairly well. Two kids did math and made good progress, we got some things reorganized and cleaned out, hauled goodies for our goats, got two kids to work, got one kid to soccer practice and even got going on watermelon rind pickles! And one kid rode her pony. And I even read a little! We also watched a neat video on Martin Luther - "Martin, God loves you!". I learned a lot and it gave us lots to talk about. A very good start, laid back and non-stressful, and a very good step back onto our path!
Do you ever wish God would just send you a little view into what is going to come? I am in place of just wanting a slight vision to see that everything will work out. And by "everything" I actually have no idea exactly what I mean.
Professional life - yes, though I think that is basically done for now, just doing a little to supplement the income, but primarily being a professional mom. (Love that job by the way!)
We are in a season of transition (aren't we always?) and I am just taking it a day at a time. And perhaps that is the answer. God provides enough for each day. Maybe I have been trying to see too much. Trying to have too many things laid out. Maybe the everyday miracles are huge, but missed when we look too far ahead.
So, here is to a day of everyday miracles - clean laundry, loving kids (and squabbling kids - you always get both sooner or later), house cleaning one corner at a time, kittens rolling on the floor, the scent of a horse, kids learning new things, simple pleasures. Thanks God, though could you turn the heat down a little?
