Good morning friends, and welcome to the blog!
I hope y’all have had an amazing June so far. We have had a wet one, and I’ve spent a lot of my time working on Etsy orders and contemplating homeschool things. It has been a good month!
There have been a lot of changes going on in my life and heart lately. Lots and lots.
We finally sold our four bucklings this month for… get this… $25.00 each! I honestly thought we would have to give them away! It wasn’t a very successful kidding season over here with the buckling to doeling ratio, a stillborn, and a rejected baby. I’m not sure if I want to do it again, especially because some of us do not drink milk at all.
My oldest daughter’s wedding was this month and I was not invited. Friends, this is one of the hardest things I’ve gone through in my entire life. Sometimes you think you are doing everything right as a parent, but you aren’t. At this point my conscience is clear that I’ve done all that I could to make wrongs right. I think I’ve done all I can do on my end. But I definitely am making some changes to my parenting style and what I allow/disallow going forward.
My faith is changing, too. Not because of the above situation, but because of years of study and questioning. For the time being at least, I want my faith to be more private as I sort things out. I do know that God is good, faithful, and just. I am so thankful for His hand on my life!
Life is a beautiful gift, even through the hard times. If we are breathing, we have a purpose and God is not through with us yet.
We can bring joy and happiness to our families simply by having a good attitude. What we do matters!
Oh, one good change around here is that Moses is now potty trained. I don’t have a single child in diapers! This is over a decade in the making, and I must admit it feels very nice. While in a way I wish my babies would stay little forever, there are definitely perks to them growing older.
I hope you have a wonderful week, friends!
