So, even though I am missing my husband, I am embracing this time as a gift from God. I will never get caught up with projects that I would love to do, but I am grateful for these weeks to work on a few.
My biggest project has been to go through boxes and boxes of homeschool records and books which have been stored in our storage room for years, just waiting for me. I am keeping a record for each of our homeschool years, but much of what is stored just needs to go and make room for other things. I'm thankful for this time to be working on this.
I'm also thankful to be able to spend some time scrapbooking, something I love to do, but seldom have had time for this spring and summer. I've scrapbooked some of the years of our lives (besides making scrapbooks for each of our six children at high school graduation time), but am now going back many years, and doing an album of our wedding. So very fun! I am so thankful for time to do this. I take photos of about everything, so here is one from yesterday of my scrapbooking project in process.
So thankful for this gift of time for projects, and remembering from whom I have received it.
