    Aww…I love the smiles on your kids! So pure and so natural.

    “I look my children in the eye and smile at them, tell them I love them, and give them a ginormous hug”

    That’s exactly what I do! It doesn’t take much at this age and even when I am down, I just smile at her and instant, she lights up! I love it. I give her lots of hugs and kisses and reminders of how much I love her.

    I’m also happy to see Life of Fred on your list because that always cheers us up too!

    Just wanted to say that you are not alone in how you feel. You’ve been through a lot. It’s okay to feel the way you do. I do pray that it will get easier and your mood will lift with time. In the meantime, treat yourself well. Homeschooling can wait and there will always be time for that.

    During my hardest times, I’ve learned that sometimes I just need to ride out the waves. Instead of fighting it, imagine yourself surfing above the waters and waiting for the calm which is soon to follow. God bless and lots of (((hugs))).

    I needed this post tonight; thank you. I too struggle with the silly. I think we’ll be posted a family joy list soon. 🙂
