The light of gratitude and Thanksgiving:
I have to agree with him that finding and recognizing the good in our lives makes for a happier daily life.
With a crazy week at our house: getting a new rental going, a daughter’s final play week, church leadership duties, cub scout pack meeting, my parents flying in to town tomorrow, etc., I decided to be grateful for each of them . . . and especially for the small number of carnival submissions this week.
I’m also excited to try some of Barbara’s ideas for our upcoming Thanksgiving week, since I’m usually the one scrambling like mad on Thursday morning:
Lightening your homeschool difficulties
Her post made me starting thinking about my own list of battles I decided weren’t worth fighting.
At Corn and Oil, Susan writes about Susan Wise Bauer taking a break from homeschool conferences to set up a bed and breakfast for would-be farmers in her post: Homeschool Leader Moving On to Greener Pastures.
Homeschool Online says, “So often I feel like I’m the only homeschooling mom that has struggles… everyone else appears to be doing fine and having a great time homeschooling… but I’m not alone am I?” The post: Struggles, Disappointments, and Concerns… You are NOT alone!
The Light of Example
She encouraged my to make an effort to reach out more to thank those who are serving and have served our country.
This concludes the “Light” Edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling. With the ‘busy’ness of the holidays approaching, remember to enjoy them and keep it light.
Feel free to post a link to the carnival, tweet, or link via Facebook. I appreciate it!
Make sure to submit your post to next week’s carnival. For information: Carnival of Homeschooling.
