I so enjoyed painting Madeline's giveaway prize. So much so that I put life on hold a little while I finished it.
Life in general will slow down for a while now as I finished work yesterday.
I have very mixed feelings about becoming a stay at home mother (again). Mostly positive, but some sadness, as I say good bye to colleagues and families who I have worked with closely for the past 6 months.
Overall I have peace about my own situation and decision, and I am thankful for the opportunity, very.
I read this book last week and was fascinated by the way the Amish community lives. Life seems like hard work, but the family roles are clear, community ties are strong, and life seems a little simpler. People with whom I have discussed this book have all independently come to the same conclusion: there is something very appealing about this way of life. Is it simply that the grass is always greener? What do you think?
