JMJ 44 *Rather than wallow in the mundane-ness of today, I figure it is a good day to count our blessings. This is the kind of day to reflect on and count our blessings and look at the beauty of what is around us. I thank God for all He has given us through homeschooling and all the opportunities my children have been given.
Ring the School Bell 44/180 days
Nothing extraordinary comes to mind when recalling today. Kind of a mundane academic day. Everybody did what they were supposed to do and nothing especially notable happened. A mundane day is a blessing. I know that. Considering natural disasters and wars, I imagine many would trade what they are going through for a mundane day.
Rather than wallow in the mundane-ness of today, I figure it is a good day to count our blessings. This is the kind of day to reflect on and count our blessings and look at the beauty of what is around us. I thank God for all He has given us through homeschooling and all the opportunities my children have been given.
We have been blessed in so many ways. I just picked a few as I really do have an exhaustive list that could go and on. Hence the “part 1” in the title of this narrative. From time to time, I will share more.
- True friends- I consider this as my greatest blessing of all, to have developed friendships with families who are like-minded in faith and values. They are true companions that are there when you need them, and are a lot of fun to go camping with!
- Carefree childhood- For the most part, the girls’ childhood has been free from negative peer pressure, bullying, and labeling. They have felt free to explore whatever fancies them, including the sciences, without judgement from their friends.
- Family time- Although everyone has their particular interests, we are left with substantial time to develop relationships and go on road trips as well as many family field trips.
- Piano- Two of my daughters have pursued lessons in piano. With some of the money we saved by keeping them at home, we indulged them with lessons. With time on their hands, and an uncluttered mind, they have practiced diligently over the years. I love the way it fills the house with enchanting music.
How have you been blessed?

** Note to the Reader- Today’s narrative is part of our family’s school journey from a few years ago, during my eldest daughter’s senior year in high school, a rather emotional year, with its many ups and downs. Every day’s blog entry coincides with a day from that special year. It can be read from the beginning by selecting the “Ring the School Bell 180” category on the side bar. Commence with the narrative, “The School Bell- What comes to mind when ‘you’ hear that bell?”

May God shower blessings on your family as he has on mine. Annette
