    Oh, Sarah, what a quote. I’ll be thinking about this one for awhile. It reminds me of Bernard of Clairvaux, who said, “That which we love we shall grow to resemble.”

      It’s the roof of our car, frosted by the night but being warmed by the sunrise. Lovely where we can find delight when we’re looking, isn’t it?

    I think my north is spending more quality time with my children As someone who has always homeschooled, I find that I can easily take for granted, the time I am with my children. I get wrapped up in the chores, and the work, and the schooling. But, I have recently been more aware of the limited time I have with them. That these days of being together will not last forever. As I think about it now, my heart breaks. I really love my children. I really love who they are and I really want them to know that and love themselves, too. Who knew parenting was so beautifully painful?
