I don't like the way I feel at the end of days like today. It's a feeling of missing out, of wondering did I choose what was best today or merely what was good. Yes, some of the things I did today needed doing. But in my desire to make Monday as perfect as possible did I overlook what was most important? If I had taken time to sit down in the floor and play with my children for even thirty minutes, it would have filled up their little love tanks. We might have been minus a laminated game or poster come Monday, but no one would have cared.
I do want to ignite a love of learning in them, but as worthy a goal as that is, it is not the main reason we have them here with us at home.
As our family begins our new homeschool year, it is my prayer that God will help me to not get caught up in the details, but to focus on what matters for eternity. These little souls are growing up too fast. May I capture as many moments with them as I can, while I can.
Have a blessed Lord's today tomorrow.
