What kind of blogger doesn't blog for over one month? Apparently, someone who just doesn't know what to talk about. Originally this blog was for me to work on my writing skills but over time it was more posting pictures and descriptions of events, gardens and crafts.
Today I have no pictures and no crafts what I have is a little bit of myself and maybe a little advice (I know you didn't ask for it but here it is anyways).
Mothers, when your children are young it is a good thing. A physically exhausting thing but a good thing. The best advice I can give you is to work with your spouse making decisions together about raising your children and most importantly not comparing any milestones with other families.
Don't compare when they sit, crawl, walk, talk or read. Trust that it will happen in their time. Love them, love them, love them!
When your children get older - love them, love them, love them! When their hormones are raging and they are trying to figure out who they are and what they want; when they are happy one moment and frustrated the next; offer them chocolate with a smile and if it is safe to do so, give them a hug.
Once again, do not compare reading and writing skills, physical prowess, personalities, achievements, where they go to school, where they play sports or what colleges they will be attending or not attending. Enjoy where your children are and appreciate your time with them. Very soon they will be on their own.
Teach Character! It is a lasting trait that goes far in this world. The book learning i.e. math, English, history, etc. is important but character is what makes a man or a woman.
When your children grow into young women (and men - but I have young women) love them, love them, love them! Call and text them. Have dinner and a movie with them and enjoy their company.
Above all else, pray for your children, your husbands and your home daily. Pray for their safety and their faith. Pray that God sends them good friends and they seek His word to make good and wise choices. I pray that your homes and your families are focused on God and Him alone. That when your eyes are turned to Him your hearts and minds will be filled with all things that are good, noble, righteous, good and kind. For with Him there is Love and Peace and I pray that love and peace for you.Pin It

Our newest purchase was the record player and we love it!
|The old room, rather messy with 3 white walls and one red accent wall.|
|This is a pretty blue pint color named Tranquility. I hope it helps us to create and not nap!|
|My big helper!! She loves decorating, painting and putting things together.|
|This is the room with some of the furniture. We have since moved the furniture around and added a few pieces.|
|We love these curtains. Unfortunately, they were on clearance and had 4 but not the same size. I have purchased them and now need someone to help me cut and hem them to size. |
