Sometimes you need a little something-something...

It seems like I've been in this weird void of sorts. It started after Thanksgiving. Maybe it's because I was sick, maybe it's because it's been cold & the kids haven't been getting out much. I don't know. What I do know is that even when my mind doesn't specifically think it, even when I don't even know I need it, God hears what I need. He has a way of reaching me, even if I haven't exactly been reaching out to Him.

Today, I was checking my email one last time before leaving the house. I know you all have heard me speak of Darcy. She's a lovely, spunky, talented fellow homeschooler. Today she posted this letter, and it spoke to me in so many ways. I sat for a moment awed and amazed that THIS is what I needed to hear, right here, right now where I stand. I wanted to share it with other Mamas I know who read this who are on the same homeschooling journey. Even some who may not homeschool will find this truthful, honest, and refreshing. Thanks, Darcy.

Yep, the same goes for all of us, homeschooler's or not. My tree tipped over yesterday, the Christmas storage bins are lying all around the house, and I picked this week to try and clean out our closets. If you had a glimpse into my house, you would know, I'm not even close to having it all together!

Take care, enjoy those kiddo's!

Thank you for sharing that, Tina. I needed that as well, today especially. So much so, that I have been wondering how much longer I can do this. I laugh in knowing that I am sure I am not the only one who thinks this way.

I've thought that maybe I should devote at least some of my blog to homeschool, but I don't think I will. It's my one place that's all for me. I know that is selfish, but with homeschool, deployments, house cleaning & cooking. . .this is my one place. Thanks for your encouragement ;D

It's so nice when something you need comes along at just the right time like that!
