Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

How do you get it all done?

Well the schooling was going well -still is really but my youngest daughter is really not letting me have a minute!!! She is feeding a lot and through the night resulting in me being a little more tired/grumpy than I should - I also really need to exercise but honestly can't find the time as come evenings it takes me a while to settle her then I'm so tired and in the morning she is up the same time as me! If anyone has any good tips for being able to get out of bed while co sleeping with a baby without disturbing baby I'd love to hear them!
My schedule that I am working on with managers in the home is currently on hold as I do all the last minute jobs for the Above Rubies family retreat - coming up next weekend - soooo excited/nervous! It's been on hold for a while really as the organising the retreat was a little bit more work than anticipated. And probably when I finally manage to make the schedule it will be a big help!

I went on the Above Rubies ladies retreat last weekend - how refreshing and encouraging. I think we do need to  be reminded regularly that we are doing a GREAT work in taking care of our families and raising Godly children - what an impact we could have on the nation as those children become adults and fulfil their God given destiny!!
