Importance of a Mother's Role

How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No. A woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness. -G.K. Chesterton

A Bit About Me

Greetings! I hope to keep up on this blog and do regular postings. However, we are in the middle of our second move with the military. We were supposed to be at this assignment for 4 years, but the AF changed things and is sending us to a new duty station at the end of May. I looking forward to our move for the most part, but I will admit that it will be hard to leave. I have made many friends in our short time here and will miss them dearly. Not to mention that I don't really care for change all that much so the change in cities will not be very much fun. But I am trying to stay optimistic about everything since I know that will effect my transition in the long run.

My hubby has been in the AF for almost 6 years and we have 3 beautiful children. James (5) has a late birthday so I'll be doing Kindergarten with him starting this fall. He has a speech delay (officially called Auditory Processing Disorder) so many times you may read something about him that has to do with this. We currently have him in private speech therapy and hope to continue that after we move. David (3) still thinks he's two and continues to push his boundaries. Most of my energy in the day is spent with him. Elizabeth (9 months) is a lot of fun to be around and I'm trying my best to enjoy her clingy stage :-) She is the only one that has been born at home and I loved it! I hope to be able to do a home birth whenever God blesses us with another baby, although the area we're moving to is not so midwife friendly. Which just means that there are more hoops I'll have to jump through.

I have been a Christian since about age 12 and desire to raise our children in a Godly home, but I have come to realize that there is still a lot of me that needs working on. God uses my children everyday to refine me and show me where I come up short. I am thankful for His grace and patience with me as walk this path.

A Start

I decided to start a more public blog. We'll see how it goes :-)
