The Simple Woman's Daybook #67

Outside my window...is the tent in which we did much of our school work today.

I am thinking...about the many things we are doing in the next two weeks and how busy we're going to be.
I am thankful for... the blessing of life-long friendships.
I am wearing...blue capri pants and a coral polo, but I'm thinking about sweats or yoga pants instead.
I am remembering... when Lukas struggled to even spend a night with his grandparents. Time flies.

I am creating...a relaxed school day for my children since they are a little too tired for anything too stressful. It's great to be able to give them exactly what they need.

I am going... back to my eye specialist tomorrow. :( This visit wasn't planned but has become necessary.

I am reading... Her Daughter's Hope by Francine Rivers. I've waited for it on reserve at the library for over a month. So far, it's great!
I am hoping... for healing.
On my mind... how to help people who have known me my entire life accept me for who I am today rather than who I was 15 or even 20 years ago. Isn't it interesting how people can recognize their own growth but assume that your immaturity never goes away and thus expect the worst from you?

From the learning rooms...  Job, new reading flashcards which I still need to make, The Duchess Bakes a Cake, the LAST unit of Gamma and autumn crafts.

Noticing that... something needs to change immediately.
From the kitchen... apple spice muffins.

Around the house... Ava's bedroom is getting an overhaul.

One of my favorite things... hiking in the fall.
Praying for... my eye and mind to heal and my kids who have had to shoulder too much because of my lack of ability to think straight.

A verse to share... " But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."  Galatians 5: 22-23

A lyric or two...

I need your mercy,
I need your grace,
I need your hand,
Leading the way.
Can't make it without you,
Not for one day,
I need your mercy,
I need your grace.

A few plans for the week... eye appointment, Shine the Light at our house on Thursday(stop by if you're local...cotton candy, treat bags, games and prizes!), SEEING MY SISTER AND FAM on Friday and Boo at the Zoo on Saturday (also with my sis and fam).
