about me

meabby.jpgWelcome to my personal blog. Here you’ll find homeschooling curriculum reviews, recipes, and whatever else I feel like writing about that doesn’t fit in at one of my other blogs. You’ll also see pictures and videos that I’ve posted especially for the grandparents.

abigail-painting-sm.jpg My father-in-law says that he has seven grandchildren–six on earth and one in heaven.   Five of those children are mine, including the one who is in heaven. This is an oil painting of my daughter who is no longer with us. You can read more about grief and comfort after the loss of a loved one at grieving with guinever.

When I’m not changing diapers, doing laundry, cooking, shopping, sleeping, wiping up potty training accidents, teaching Caleb how to read, encouraging Mary to be a young lady, challenging Alex to be diligent in his school work, and trying to have a quiet conversation with my 4-siblings-on-the-couch.jpghusband, I’m blogging! I’m just a not-so-normal presbyterian home executive. I’m the wife to my wonderful husband. I’m a home birthing, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, homeschooling  mother who also enjoys teaching natural childbirth classes and attending births as a doula. I love walking on clean floors and only get to when I’m visiting homes without children. To read my latest posts, click here.

    Your clean floors comment was hilarious. I am so with you on that! Let’s just say my house isn’t the idyllic little place I pictured. Scratch that. Actually, I am not the idyllic little housekeeper I pictured. But there is nothing else I would love doing half so much as this.

    I am so glad to know that my floors aren’t the only ones with children that can turn white socks grey occasionally. Come to think of it, nothing white stays white for very long in our house. 🙂 I too like walking on clean floors, looking out of clean windows, into clean mirrors, and walls without toddler hieroglyphics. On the other hand, there are few things cuter than a perfect tiny hand print on the bathroom mirror. Isn’t being a mommy fun?!

    I Guinever, I just read you grieving page the other day. I can not possibly tell you how much I grieved with you three years ago, but some how I felt your pain. It was so good to read about your story. I relived it myself. I even was able to help a coworker who had just hit a child with her car, by sharing your story. I truly believe that the Lord has helped you deal with Abby loss in the healthiest way hummanly possible, with God’s grace. You are a light to shine for others. I am so proud of you and I know the Lord is too. You are an amazing woman, mother and wife to your family and God’s. I really look forward to seeing you at Lizzie’s wedding. Take care, Lisa L
