First Day of School

This has been a major emotional week for me. My baby girl turned 12! For some reason this is a big one for me. TWELVE! Wow! Today is our 16th wedding anniversary! Seriously! SIXTEEN~~!! Double Wow! Yesterday, I went to register my children for their co-op classes. That is what it is called, when homeschoolers take classes, taught by other homeschool mom's or dad's or their children! Back to my thought. I got home and it hit me. It hit me like a ton of bricks!!! I had just registered my baby boy for his FRESHMAN year in HIGH SCHOOL!! OMG! When did this happen? I remember his very first day of school like it was yesterday! I'm talkin Kindergarten people! I remember how he looked and him holding a special bookmarker I had made for him. On one side it had a picture of me, and on the other side it had a picture of his Dad. I told him that way we were still with him at school and if he felt sad he could look at his bookmarker. tear. As I sat ther realizing what had just happened, I realized that he only has FOUR more first day's of school!!! Four out of thirteen!!! I hope and pray to God that I am doing a great job at being a mother. (at least, I hope they will think so when they are all grown up!) I pray that I cherish every second I am blessed to share with them. I pray I lead and guide them to make good decisions and be outstanding citizens in society. I pray that I have instilled in them that having faith and believing in God are just like breathing. It comes naturally, and you don't even think about doing it, cuz it is such a normal process for you. I always knew I wanted to be a mother, and I pray that I have done my best at it. I am blessed to be staying home and home schooling my children now. I am really enjoying them and getting to know them on such a different level that many parents are never aware of. Thank you Lord!!

Do you Have any "rules" for your life??

I have a few. The other day on facebook a friend contact asked if it was okay for her to be mad at a person she had asked a question of, that had given her an answer she was not happy with. Ummmm.... DUH! I have a simple rule. It is my number TWO rule in my life. NEVER ask a question you really don't want to know the answer to. It's that simple! Like how many people ask their significant other the number of partners they have been with. WHY? What difference does it make, as long as you are disease free and this person makes you happy? Would it matter if it was 1 or 100? I think it's more important to ask yourself what are you going to do with this information. Are you going to hold it against them? Is it going to affect your relationship negatively? If yes, then WHY ask?? I simply say before you ask the question, ask yourself a few questions. 1- what are you going to do with the information? 2- is this information in any small chance going to change your relationship/friendship? If you are not ready for the change, or don't want a change. STOP. Don't ask it. Sometimes being clueless means being bliss. That is my tip for the day..... The sun is out and not a cloud in the sky. go forth and may the force be with you my friends!!
