"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Well, I struggled with this…..

I had my ears pierced at the age of 12.

Ana has been BEGGING to get hers pierced since she knew there was a difference between her ears & her best friend’s ears.

I finally thought, “What’s the big deal? Is there a reason she can’t get them pierced for another 3 years?

Other than sticking to convention. (or, just doing it that way because that’s the way my parents did it).

But, Ana is a different person than I was at 9.
And we are different parents than ours were. (even though we both agree-there couldn’t be better parents than ours out there!!)

And, I figured…..that’s ok.
So-we surprised Ana at Cinderella’s Royal Table in Magic Kingdom with news that she would be getting her ears pierced upon her arrival home.
