One of the greatest pleasures for me, as a homeschool mom, is to witness these moments of sympathy and mercy between my children. James was struggling with his math lesson, and Carrie stopped what she was doing, leaned over and helped him out. And, as I think you can see, they were both blessed by the giving and receiving of kindness. And so was I.
We don’t get performance reports, as homeschool teachers. We have to be nourished by times like these. I am so happy that I was able to capture this one to share.
