Our local homeschool group had our monthly mom's planning meeting this evening. I can't begin to express the joy it brings me to have so many wonderful mothers attend these meetings. I never could have dreamed when I founded our little group five years ago that it would grow to have such an important impact on my family.
I am so grateful for every family in our group. Each one of them holds a special place in my heart. Each one of them bring something unique and inspiring to the group. We are all different - in our family organization and size, in our teaching philosophy and methods, in our beliefs and ideals, in our interest and talents. But these differences strengthen our little group. We challenge one another and learn from each other. We agree to disagree on certain things and don't let it interfere with what is truly important. And that is our children and families. Each and every one of these families have their children as a most vital priority. And this, I am sad to say, is severely lacking in our society today.
So today I am grateful for all the wonderful families God had brought into my family's life through our little homeschool group. They encourage me. They strengthen me. They challenge me. They inspire me. I can honestly say I am a better person, wife, mom and teacher because of them.
You all know who you are. Thank you.
