Some nights I come to write and there’s just nothing to say. I don’t know where to start or where to go so I just type. I admit, I’m not good at choosing topics to share about.
Our lives are pretty predictable. We get up, the babies have their meds, the kids have breakfast. Then we do school, we watch videos, we discuss things that interest us. Then it’s lunch and sometimes it’s school in the afternoon, sometimes it’s play time outside if the weather is great. Then comes dinner, bathtime and bedtime. Wash, rinse, repeat every day.
Weekends bring a routine of their own as well. Around the house leads to the kids helping as much as they can so they learn important skills like changing tires, brakes, and oil. In the Summer, they help cut grass and clean up the yard.
This is our life. Boring as it is, I wouldn’t change it for anything. People often ask me how I can stand having the kids around all the time. I honestly don’t know any difference. They’re always here, I’m always here and to me, that’s exactly how it’s supposed to be. To them, that’s how it should be as well.
I’ve asked them multiple times if they’d rather go to Public school and they constantly assure me they wouldn’t. The older two went for a while and wanted to be home so home they came again. The younger two have never been to Public school and if I have my way, they never will.
Life is what you make of it. How you live is your choice. Negative or positive, it’s all a decision you make daily. I choose to be as positive as I can be. I choose to find the good in life as much as possible and I choose to teach this to my children. They appreciate that and I pray they will pass it forward as they grow up.
Each day is a gift to live and a blessing unlike any other. Live, laugh, love and be happy every day!
