This is a great quote, a wonderful reminder from Sally Clarkson in her book Seasons of a Mother’s Heart
“My joy isn’t dependent on keeping my house as orderly as I would like, or on obtaining possessions to put in it, or on getting all the schooling done or accomplishing anything else on my To Do List. My joy is dependent on my relationship with my Lord and our celebrating together this life he has given me.
So make the choice to celebrate life with your family. It is so easy to think that life consists of the assorted responsibilities, tasks, crises that fill up the hours of each homeschooling day. But it doesn’t. The parts of life that matter most are the unexpected moments and memories that happen each day–the one’s that won’t be forgotten.
Choose to be thankful, and learn to be content.
You’ll find the joy that God wants you to know.”
