On my mind as I do oodles of prep work for the fall…
How much is too much?
Where does the balance sit between believing in Matthias and what he can be and honouring who he is today?
Is an active, busy family schedule keeping us from a simple, slower life or just the way we relish the days we live?
What one word can I use to remind myself of the importance of the important things as compared to the clamor of the urgent things?
Why do I always think I can accomplish 12x more in a free day than I really can?
If I stop pushing myself all the time, will I collapse back to the lazy, unfocused drifter I fear that I used to be? Am I destined to prod myself for the rest of time because it’s in my nature to move forward?
What if I’m not as good a homeschooling mother as I should be?
Why don’t I go have some tea and yogurt and let things sort themselves out?
