These past few months as I have been
thinking about homeschooling,
praying about homeschooling,
and now planning,
and talking to other homeschool families,
I have to share the most powerful advice I have gotten from one homeschool mom.
Before we made our decision,
I felt overwhelmed,
I didn't know what or how I would do it.
How would I handle everything and fit it all in?
One afternoon, I was sharing my concern with another homeschool mom and she could see my desperation and hear the defeat in my voice.
I asked the question aloud to myself, not expecting an answer,
"How will I do it all?"
She simply said,
Those two words changed everything.
As I let that truth sink in,
I felt so relieved.
And for the first time, I felt no worry, no fear, no anxiety.
And we began to shift our thinking.
We began to ask ourselves what can be taken off my plate.
What needs to change to make this work?
I can't do it all.
and I am so glad!
