Disappointing News

I write this post with disappointment in my heart. We have just a week and a half of summer left! During that short time, we will be taking an out of town trip, finishing up our summer lessons and getting ready for the next school year. I have a lot of planning to do! And I have a few big projects I started this summer that I really need to complete before school begins. And this weekend is Spiderman's birthday!

My top priority is my children - their hearts and their minds. I need to start off the school year with a plan and in a hopeful state of mind. In order to do so, I need to take a break from blogging. I wish I could do it all and blog too. Really, I do. But, I have to be realistic. Lord willing, I will be back once school is underway. I still have so much I want to share about how we can bless our families with greater health...

If you've been a long time reader, know that I really appreciate your comments and your participation in this blog. I look forward to reconnecting when I return.

If you're a new reader, I apologize for the pause. Please enjoy the archives while I'm away. I look forward to getting to know you soon!

On a side note: Our children need attentive parents. They need parents who will really listen, who will ask the questions that probe their hearts and take the time to hear their responses. Our children need quantity time, not just compartmentalized quality time. I talk about the amazing position we are in as mothers, mostly in reference to how we can bless our families with health. But, more importantly, we have been put in a position to nurture our children's hearts. Let's not miss the precious opportunity!

Peace and joy,

The best inspiration you can be to us, is to show us that putting our children and families first (after God of course) is the most important thing. I pray you accomplish all you set out to!
