At www.thesteeds.net Happy Little Homemaker is a young mom looking to spend January and February studying A Mother's Rule of Life and actually making it work. She's already read the book 5 times. Maybe this is what I need? I've been think ever since our life went crazy how unprepared I was for so much change and how much I needed a retreat. Perhaps a working retreat is the best idea.
Each Saturday she will post an assignment and ask for comments and she's even planned an extra/catchup week knowing what a mom's life can be. This week she asked why we want to join this project. Here was my response:
"I've had and read the book and even started some of the work. However many big parts of our lives have changed and I need some real thought to go into 'what are my priorities?'
I have 7 kids, babysit a nephew, homeschool and am a leader in our support group. Before taking on babysitting I had started going back to school and started substitute teaching (and a small part time job ) while my husband was out of work. The problem is I REALLY loved being out of the house. Now he is back at work and I need to decide what I really want, what is best for the family and if I can stay home with a thankful heart."
