I was living in survival mode and I needed to somehow recover but sheer will power wasn't enough. I needed to rest in Jesus. Be ok with not being ok. Take one day at a time and focus on the beauty in the little things. This was a year of resting in God's love, appreciating the relationships around me, and learning to love the crazy life God has given me.
Even before I was married I wanted to homeschool my future kids but now that I'm 5 years in with a 2nd, 4th and 5th grader this year and with 2 little ones under foot while I teach, I wonder what in the world I was thinking! It’s super hard! ...but it's the hard stuff that produces great results when you press on.

As I was snacking on my leftover veggie tray from the 4th of July, it occurred to me that life is kind of like a veggie tray. There are parts of it that we love, and parts that we don’t like even a little and sometimes, depending on what the tray has to offer, nothing at all that we want. The thing about it, though, is that it’s all good for you!
