I just discovered this great linky last night (late last night) and decided I was going to accept this challenge, posting each day in the month of November of what I am grateful for. Too often I am guilty of worrying and focusing on the bad. I need to change my outlook and I figured this challenge would help me focus on what I should be focusing on. As I am a day behind I will start today off with two things I am thankful for.
I am so thankful for the love and forgiveness of the Lord my God. He does not give up on me and loves me with a "crazy love." This is the title of the book we are reading in our care group.
I am also thankful for my loving husband. The Lord brought us together in His timing, which is extremely awesome. WE met through my hubby's mom, whom I'd known for a while. We got to know each other and were married, bringing our families together, though we don't really see our other children from our previous marriages very often as they are getting older. I am very thankful for a husband who supports me, who is not critical of me and who allows me to stay home with the children and homeschool. The Lord brought a wonderful man into my life.
Welcome to Tots and Me... Growing Up Together, where I share homeschool activities, crafts, recipes, and tips, both of my own creation and those I have found around the web. I also love to share reviews and the occasional giveaway.
I am a stay at home mom. I have always wanted to teach, started college with a major in Early Education, but ended up staying home with my son (which turned into staying home with my 2 sons and daughter). Years later ended up with an Associates Degree in Human Services. Which helped me get a director's position at the Montessori I was working at. I am now staying home with my 3 young children. While my older children are off in public school we are homeschooling. I am doing what I always dreamed of doing, teaching!! I feel this is where God has led and willed me to be. I will be here to "Train up [my children] in the way [they] should go: [so] when [they are] old, [they] will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
