The Joy of Being Home

This week marks the second week that I have been a full time – MOM!  Our family  made the decision to home school our youngest son this year and I have left my part time job outside the  home to be home full time.
One of the biggest blessings of being home is the extra time in my day.  Relaxed time that does not keep me in panic mode because I have so much to do and time to spend nurturing and caring for my home and family.  This has brought me much joy this week!
Some simple things I found joy in this week are:
Doing laundry the old fashioned way:
 025 027
Making some food from scratch:
031
Being able to light my candles and keep them lit, since I will be home to watch them!
032
And of course, the challenge and joy of watching learning take place:
030
Thank you Lord, for your blessings!


Good, True & Beautiful
