Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Perfect Children School Family + Music - 4Ms

I feel that busy is about to rush in and all I want to do is divide and calm down.

This is a new day. I am alive, God be praised.

Sunday was good, despite the other moments.

Saturday hubs mother came. She'll be staying a few days.  I hope I can find some good home cooked cuisines for her to enjoy.
I had soup waiting for her at the end of her travel. It's nice to have a good hot meal after  a long travel.

My children are amazing at the ages of 10 and 12. They do so well in school and just a few days ago my daughter asked to sign up for the Math competition team!  I'm so proud of her. School is rough, but I keep encouraging them that it's important for them and their future and that people have fought for their rights to go to school and that they have the strength to get through each day.
We pray and we push.
And I try so hard to provide a safe landing space for them at the end of the day.
I see how hard it is with some children these days and I'm so blessed and proud how these kids choose to conduct themselves, even when things are rough.

Now for a new song I love.

Hope y'all had a great weekend!
