How did I ever get here?
Here. My life.
It is not really always a matter of God’s will but many times of actions and reactions.
You make choices and then have to live with them. There is always a pay back. Always a tomorrow.
How does this fit in with “Living Without School”?
Well, how do we as mothers share our mistakes and subsequent learning with our children?
Certainly not with ease. Like all of parenting, sharing our choices and the less than stellar results requires, necessitates, courage…forethought…….honesty…mindfulness…..prayer…time.
Tonight, in a debate, well, really, in a heated discussion with two of my sons, I said, loudly, that choices have consequences.
So, I share via words.
And via my life.
The kids see my life, the consequences of some of my actions. They see me just moving forward because sometimes the only way out is through. You gotta keep going.
Kids are wise. They see these things. They listen, sometimes. They learn sometimes.
Therefore, maybe, just maybe, history doesn’t always repeat.
