Having had a hard few weeks, it has been such a pleasure that my joy has returned!
    It was yesterday, when we had our homeschool May Crowning in the park.  Being around the other families, somehow, God’s grace descended upon me.  I felt so happy with the choices I’ve made, spending so much of my adult life with my children.  I felt such peace, knowing that I am doing every, single, possible thing I can to give my children justice when they are wronged, mercy when they are wrong, and love no matter who they are or what they do.  
   Somehow, being at the May Crowning was like a mirror being held up, and I was able to see God looking at me and saying, “Keep going!  You can do it!”
