You've heard it so many times before, but it bears repeating simply because it's truth: Take the time to enjoy your children today, because this season of your life will soon be gone.
It really does seem like just yesterday that I became a mom for the first time...but in all actuality, my first-born will turn 20 in about a month. Time flies, doesn't it?!
Wherever you are in your journey as a mom, take a moment today to enjoy each one of your children, exactly as they are, right now. Cement it into your memory, because it will mean so much to you in the coming years. Enjoy them now, store up memories for later, and be blessed all the way around!
Our children are a gift from the Lord, a treasure of unspeakable worth. Sometimes when the days are long, the laundry pile has become mountainous, and homeschooling feels overwhelming, we forget that simple truth. Step back, take a deep breath, and enjoy your kids today. You'll never once regret it!
May you be richly blessed today as you homeschool for His glory!
Day 231 done :)

PS - Check out my daughter's updated website...she had a lot of fun making some changes :)
PPS - If you think of it, keep our family in prayer as we continue to face long-term unemployment. We know that all the Lord's promises prove true and we are eagerly expecting His answer to our prayers for a job for my hubby :)
