If you have a job, what do your children know about what you do all day? Have you ever considered taking them to work for a day, or maybe allowing them to visit you once in a while at work?
As you can imagine, having three children in travel sports and a traveling choir can get pricey. However, I have found ways to help pay for our children's hobbies that keep us from going broke.
As much as I hate to think about it, it's that time of year when summer break is winding down and the beginning of a new school year is upon us. If you are like me, you might not feel ready interrupt your summer fun with buying school supplies at the end of July, but there are other things you may need to do to prepare for the coming year.
We women tend to beat ourselves up for not doing enough even on our most successful day. I don't want my daughter to spend her days in self doubt. I also want to develop a relationship with her that is honest. I want her to be able to come to me with her struggles and her dreams. It's my job and my delight to be able to help her work through the difficulties while also helping her create victories.
On our first visit, I fell in love with the rolling hills, winding streets, uniquely built beautiful homes, and, of course, the views of the lake, all nestled into the forest of old oaks that cover the yards. Since we moved here, I have found much more to love in Lake Country.
But if you know anyone who has suffered the loss of their mother, or a child, or infertility, be gentle and be compassionate. If they don't want to attend church or Sunday brunch, bring Sunday brunch to them. Remember, some of us can't help the tragedies that have befallen us. We have to cope with deep wounds through no fault of our own, therefore, a hug and an understanding heart is always appreciated.
