Happy Trails

Well, in case you hadn't noticed...I've more or less quit writing this blog. I've found in the last couple of months that I really don't have any desire to write here. I don't have a lot I want to say. And, as evidenced by my last entry, it's not particularly edifying (in the way I would like it to be).

You see, at this season in my life there are people that require a lot of concentrated attention. Most particularly my children. We homeschool them and blogging is a distraction for me in concentrating on their schooling and on their over all upbringing. Raising them is the most important thing I will do in my life. I don't want to screw it up. Getting distracted by blogging or really anything that averts my attention from them....well for me, that would be a screw up. Truth be told...I'm easily distracted, and it requires extra-ordinary discipline on my part to stay focused on what is really important. For me, in the grand scheme of things, blogging isn't all that important. It's not what God has called me to do.

I'm going to leave this blog up for now. I may perhaps come by every now and then and post something.

One thing I do want to do before I disappear into cyberspace is to say thank you to all the really wonderful gals who have commented here. I would venture to name you all but, even though there are not a lot of you, there are enough that I would feel badly if I missed anyone. And while I'm not going to be writing a blog anymore I imagine I will still be reading them occasionally. And I'll likely comment.

So blessings to you all and thank you for coming by and visiting me!

Cyndy, you will be missed. I totally understand where you're coming from though, I've been there myself, more than once. I hope you'll still stop by and visit and I wish you every happiness and blessing for the future.

Love, Tina :)

The demands of motherhood are great, take heart it will not always be that way. You will at some point in the very near future (it will seem like tomorrow) find that you have moved past the place where you are the center of the universe as far as raising your children.
A word of caution for a seasoned (gray haired and a bit wrinkled in a few places) veteran, keep your hand in some other things to give you a bit of identity apart for your role as a mom.
It will really help when the demands of motherhood begin to lesson and you begin to wonder who you are now that your children are not attached at the hip and needing that motherly supervision 24/7.
The hard part comes when they decide that they can do it on their own and want to spread their wings. That was a very difficult transition for me and if I had not had my close friend I am not sure I would have made it thought the first few months of my son moving out on his own.
You are a better person than I, I toyed with home schooling but given the temperament of my son and mine (oil and water) I thought better of the idea and let the idea go.
You are so right that your role as a SAHM/Home schooler is so important. Good luck in all that you will do and you will and have been missed.

Blessings

You made a wise decision--this coming from a mom of pretty much grown up children now. And thank you for the kind comment on the design change on my blog today.
