"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 am here.....but very, very busy......

I don’t think I have ever had a more busy time in my life:
~The house is on the market.
~Homeschooling continues each weekday.
~Intentionally trying to spend “FUN TIME” w/ the kiddos each day.

And, last weekend, a long anticipated “get-away” overnight w/ my oldest!

What she once thought impossible….

Is now, “Mission Accomplished!”

Ana filled up her “Chore Jar” last week!!! She’s been adding marbles since November!

We spent the night at a local hotel, & combined the retreat w/ a “tea party” & an in depth conversation about true beauty & how God views us as women!

& You know what?

*I* came away refreshed! She challenged me-not so much in things she said……but just in her desire to please God. I want to be more of the woman God created me to be-AS HER MOTHER!

If you have a pre-teen, have you done anything like this? Got any good books to recommend? (Besides what we are using now: "8 Great Dates For Moms & Daughters")

What a great reward for both of you :) So glad you enjoyed some special time together.

I totally understand about being busy. I can't seem to catch my breath!

Anna said...

What a great Mum you are! That is such a wonderful idea to do that with Ana and I'm sure she felt very special and loved every minute of it with you.
And yay for Ana filling up her chore jar:)
Hope you can get a break soon and survive this busy time.
