Summer Break, Baby!

Our homeschool year came to an end two weeks ago, and since that time I’ve been on a blogging-break to enjoy summer with my kiddo’s.

I’ve been enjoying days of extreme leisure and loafing . . .

~ watching cable news,

~ having extended quiet times (how refreshing!  I can’t believe that this will end once school commences),

~ and enjoying extended and lingering, un-rushed hugs from the little’s.  {Ahhhhhh.}

And to say “It feels great!” would be an extreme, extreme – did I say extreme? – understatement.  Like, extremely!

  • No staring into my computer for hours to compose a post, then edit, add photos, then edit again.
  • No checking Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram for stats or updates.  (I even uninstalled FB from my phone – for the third time in two years! – to help this momma stay unplugged.)
  • No getting up at ungodly hours to join-in on amazing link parties.  (Woot-woot!)
Doing “nothing” feels REAL good.
If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me.  I don’t want this to end!

I absolutely adore blogging!  So, during this bloggy-break I hope to be emotionally and spiritually refreshed as I seek the Lord for new and exciting content, as well as His overall direction concerning Welcome Home Ministry.

Until I post fresh content, here are some of my favorite posts – what I consider to be the best of Welcome Home Ministry – to encourage and inspire you; and of course, to make you laugh and feel normal – because honestly, Welcome Home is all about how the Cross and Crazy intersect!

Because nothing says “I am woman!” quite like a pap smear.  (Sorry men, go read a book!)

    • Hey Elizabeth! Happy summer! Thanks for the summer well wishes. I wish you the same and a larger serving of ice-cream. :o) And I’ll take that “hilarious” thing as a HUGE compliment coming from someone as comical as yourself. Have the bestest summer ever!
