Hearts for Home ~ Mid November 2011

In today’s busy and aggressive society mothers at home are not given much encouragement to be committed to their role in being home.  Here I encourage myself and others to commit to thinking about what 4-6 things we can do each week to bring our thoughts, prayers and actions to keeping our 'Hearts for Home'. ~



My friend, Mary, gave me this beautiful plaque as a housewarming gift. 

She is a special friend who knows me well.  I've struggled for years with planning and staying on a
schedule.  I always come to the conclusion that Our Lord is in control of our day and His plans are much better than mine. This week I'm going to try to remember to ask for His guidance each day in my morning offering.

I also want to get back to my "special time" with each one of my children each week.
Before the move, The House Cat had Monday, SB hadTuesday, Buck had Wed., and HB had Thurs.  The two big girls would read their fiction to me, which always left me much impressed.

My honey celebrates a birthday this week.  The kids and I will make a special dessert and meal for him and do our best to make him feel as special as he is to us.

It's payday which means it's time to make a meal list.  Everyone is so much happier when they know what's for supper.  I'm having a great day when I set out the meat to thaw by lunch time.  I'm also working to update our Sams Master Shopping List and the Walmart one too.  This makes shopping so much easier.

I hope to read more of A Little Way of Homeschooling this week.  Thanks Kathy for letting me know the library had this!  I've only read a couple of chapters but, I LOVE IT!!!

One last thing I hope to do is to get back to the books I've started reading aloud to Buck and Honeybee.
The Children of Fatima, Paddle to the Sea, The Kirsten Story collection (HB).  After such a fun and busy weekend it's easy to let the week slip by just catching up on "keeping house."

~

Could you please say a prayer for my honey?  He hurt his knee during Buck's birthday football game.  He went to the dr yesterday, came home on crutches, and has a MRI scheduled this afternoon.  We are hoping it's not too serious.  Thanks so much :)
