Have you noticed PCB is slowly coming back to life after it's summer break? It feels good to begin a routine after a summer of long hours outside, hard work, and so many memories made.
Finding Joy in my Life
The struggles of life never stop. They are uncomfortable. They are hard. They take resolve. In the end you learn new things and hopefully are a better person.
Right now, in this moment, joy is filling my heart once again.
After months of praying and research we've decided to homeschool our girls, a decision I am so pleased we made. We are now well into our second week and the bonds being made and things learned are so much better then I imagined. I was homeschooled through high school but it is nothing like what I am doing with my kids. I decided on a history centered curriculum with some filler classes (hello cursive handwriting). It's proving to be a wonderful journey and I know the right decision was made even though we struggled with it for months.
I am very fortunate to be married to my best friend. We've had struggles. We've had hardships. We've seen our share of bumps in the road but we always stand by each other. He has been working locally again for 4 months now. I am so grateful for the chance to eat meals together more regularly, have help with decisions, and just having a second adult in the house is such a relief. We are creating as normal a family life as we can, we don't have the luxury of a Monday-Friday job. I hope and pray He has a great plan for my husband as I know he wants so badly to have that semi-normal life we both dream of.
I made changes here at PCB that have made things different but I am very content and filled with purpose. To put it simply I know where I want to be with MY business, something I've struggled with for a long time. Sure, some of the choices were uncomfortable to make but in the end I know they were the right decision to make.
My heart is full, I am going to enjoy this feeling as long as I can. I know there will be more struggles ahead but the Lord has a plan for me.
