Coming Home Again

My last post on here was in regards to sometimes having to come home again. I recently picked up a "fill in when needed job" at the hospital and found them calling me and asking for me most everyday. It got a little carried away for someone who loves being a housewife and only wants to be away from home a little bit. I felt guilty every time I said no to them, so I wouldn't but I have resolved I am a wife, mother, housewife and homemaker first. I, also decided, "what do I want my family to remember me by." For me it is something I heard my mom say not too long ago about my grandmother, "she was always home, she was always there."

Changes

Many changes are happening here. It seems there was a little bug that creeped up on my blog and I have to remove most everything to figure out what it was, so I am redoing and re-adding to my blog. Thanks

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)
