Rambling....

I think the last week literally flew by....of course it could have got a little help from that wind that I mentioned about! With some of the kids subjects wrapping up it has been an exciting week for us homeschooling. To see the sense of accomplishment on their faces, especially blond haired little man. This week he finished grade three math...boy, was he glad to see his workbooks done! Not 5 minutes later he took out grade four....finally, he said, he was able to do grade four math....he proceeded to do 3 more days of math that very day...the joy of fresh starts!
And so I think about fresh starts...oh if we could just open up a new book and start again...take back that word, the tone of my voice or maybe that look....begin again...fresh....
and yet....
we can.....we have been given a brand new week....new moments...
a blank page with plenty of white space..to write the story of this very week...
some families will write an adventure, you might write a comedy...
there might be a mystery, or romance just waiting...
Here's to fresh pages, new books and grade four math...enjoy!

What an encouraging thought! Thank God for the new beginnings He gives us...morning by morning new mercies I see - Great is your faithfulness, Lord unto Me.
