"God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him."
(1 Jn 4:16)

Finding out the day before the homeschool conference that the person who you thought would be helping you watch your children, will not be doing so due to a birthday party.

Despite being an optimist, knowing that the above will most likely make it impossible for you to listen to any of the presentations and will most likely cause you to have to leave the conference early.

Thankfully, one of the mothers had you read her talk prior to the conference. Said talk reminded you that your responsibility is to your children and sometimes you have to wear blinders when it comes to external, desireable activities.

St. Joseph, pray for us!

    If all mothers could come to that realization at one time or another, imagine how amazing this world would be and how amazing the next generation of young people would grow to be. It is sad, but today, most people are about pleasing ourselves, having me time and doing things that give us pleasure. Sacrifice is at the heart of motherhood. Good for you that you accepted it with an open heart. God has rewarded you with a quiverful!

  2. Thank you, Sharon, for your wise words. "Sacrifice is the heart of motherhood."


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
