I have been re-reading Sally Clarkson's book Seasons of a Mother's Heart. Only one chapter in and I am seeing my biggest struggle is lack of contentedness and gratitude. I have let the responsibilities and tasks to become the master instead of the gift, beauty and love of being together.
"So make the choice to celebrate life with your family. It is so easy to think that life consists of assorted responsibilities, tasks, and crises that fill up the hours of each homeschooling day. But it doesn't. The parts of life that matter most are the unexpected moments and memories that happen each day - the ones the won't be forgotten. Choose to be thankful, and learn to be content. You'll find the joy that God wants you to know."
