this simple little post written by my dear friend Melissa and I felt encouraged. I couldn't agree more.
I was sitting on the stairs by the front door waiting for my kiddos to come home and thinking about my home. Not the physical home, but the spiritual home. The home that we all carry with us wherever we go for the rest of our lives. Just like Melissa said, "I can inspire what goes on here."
I have learned so much from my friends and their written words. It has truly broadened my mind and challenged me to be a better wife, better 'home maker' in the true sense of the word, a better mother to these precious children that I brought into this world. Whether it's just words of encouragement, a new recipe, sharing the joy of a hard-won baby, or the frustration we sometimes experience with the struggles of raising children in the world today, the sense of camaraderie I feel guides me through my days.
