Friday Mornings

I'm not sure why I've never written about this before because it is one of my favorite parts of the week.

Friday mornings.

The little two stay with a babysitter at home, the big two go to Excelsior for classes, and I, well, I sit at the Atlanta Bread Company and breathe in and out as slowly and peacefully as I would like to. As I type this I am sitting with a Spanish Omelette waiting to be eaten and a steaming cup of hot raspberry tea just to my left.

I love Friday mornings.

Usually I stare out the window, sip my tea, and work on lesson plans for the upcoming week. Sometimes I read, check email, make lists, or work on account balances for Excelsior lunches. No one interrupts me. For a few short hours, I can sit peacefully and do as I please ~ quiet things.

And, I simply love doing quiet things. They are my favorite things to do. And, I appreciate them now more than ever before in my little life.

Be still my soul!

Thank You, sweet God, for Friday mornings.

I am a homeschool mom of two and my only morning to myself is Tuesday. I use it to run errands though, I should just maybe relax more. Although my girls are 6 and 8, so I do have some quiet tea sipping moments even when they are around.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
