Where to start?
I recently added a section to my blog called “A Happy Homemaker.” I love being a wife and mother! I have been lucky enough to be a stay-home mom for many years. I thought of my homeschooling experiences, my years of teaching music. I thought of my recent bout with cancer that lead to my leap into becoming an author. I thought of my spiritual experiences and the blessing my life has been filled with over the past few years. I thought of how great it is to just be alive!
