This has been a long, long day! Just one of those days that the mind of a homeschool mom wonders how much more she can take. Then I happened to pick up a homeschool magazine dated 2004 and started flipping through the pages. My gaze is drawn to an article on burn-out. Bingo! This article, written by the father of a homeschool family, describes why burn-out happens to homeschool moms. It's nice to be reminded that I'm not going crazy. There's a reason why I look forward to taking the trash out after dinner, just for those quiet moments without hearing "Mom!"
But tomorrow is another day. A new day. Who knows - I may feel refreshed and full of energy! One can have hope, regardless of how the previous day was. At least, that's how it is for me. I was thinking about the word "hope" last night. The Bible is full of examples of people who had hope. Lessons to learn from. There is always hope, no matter what.
