Isn't this what it's all about?
My husband and I made a decision twenty-three years ago that I would be a stay-at-home mom. That was pretty radical in the city I lived in. Four years later we made an even more radical decision. We decided that I would teach our son at home. I'm sure my family thought we were nuts. ~smile~ Well, the proof is in the pudding, and we find that pudding with nuts is delicious!
These are my younger children, Michael, Amy (left), and Emily (right). This is not just a pose. I see them smiling, hugging, and acting silly together often.
Love God and love others. Those are the commandments Jesus gave us. Jesus - the foundation and center of my kids' lives. Brothers and sisters - best friends for life. Those are the things that are worth it all to me.
~ I fixed the electric pencil sharpener. It was jammed with a large piece of "lead" from a pencil.
~ My girlfriend gave me a Kombucha Scoby. I want to make some tea with it.
~ I ordered Kombucha Revolution from Blogging for Books. I want to learn more about making Kombucha safely. Blogging for Books is a great way for bloggers to get review books for free.
~ I found a pair of slacks for my husband at Goodwill.
~ The sewing machine was humming. I put darts in the back of a skirt for my daughter to make too big just right.
~ I also repaired a tea wallet.
~ I assisted my Amy in evaluating and paring down her wardrobe. She made a list of things to hunt for at yard sales and thrift stores to supplement her clothing.
It was a good week. What about you? What thrifty and frugal things have you done this week?
God bless you with peace and make your salvation sure,
in Jesus' Name, Amen
