God Gives and Forgives Generously

 "You get back what you put out." 

I heard that phrase all the time while I was growing up. I believed it wholeheartedly. 

And when it came to school work and in the workplace, it was true most of the time. If I worked hard on a school project, I got a good grade. If  I completed all of my tasks at work, I got a glowing review and a raise at the end of the quarter. 

But it did not always hold true for relationships, especially with family. I thought that if I put forth the effort into building relationships, by exhibiting the character qualities such as kindness and honesty that I hoped to receive back, people would show those qualities back to me. Everything would work out, and everyone would be happy. 

It didn't always work out that way.

Busy, Busy, Busy - Daybook 2014

Inspiration:




What we have been doing:

Our days have been busy lately. Busy in a good way.

Honestly, most of this summer was hard for me. Losing my grandmother forced me to think about things that are better left forgotten. My anxiety reached an all time high, and them I had the pesky infection that kept me on the couch for almost a month.

Once I started feeling better, we jumped right into vacation mode and  enjoyed ourselves. 

First we had our trip, then we got together with friends that we hadn't seen in weeks. Then we spent most of our afternoons visiting with friends for talking (the moms) and playing (the kids), had lunch with our friends, and went swimming.

One day the boys and I went to a Back to Homeschool  field day and picnic at a local state park. Then I enjoyed a dinner out with a couple of mom friends.

Chris and I took the boys to a water park for the day, and I rode the one water ride that I said I would not. It was super scary. I prefer roller-coasters to water-slides.

I planned my homeschool year and a co-op with a couple of other moms from our homeschool support group. 

Finally, I met my new nephews. They are twins and super cute!

The last month has been so wonderful that it totally makes up for the spring and early summer that I experienced!
