This growing joy is not something I can actually 'see' in myself, but I can see it vividly in the reflection in my family. And that fills me with gratefulness, joy, and love.
A wee rose needs to be fed... so, I did a bit more shopping earlier. On ebay I got "Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures". And then, on Amazon, I got "Homeschooling with Gentleness: A Catholic Discovers Unschooling", and Mother Angelica's "Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality". I have read some of Mother's books in the past... but don't currently own any. Now I do! :) Next week I am hoping to be able to purchase, "A Little Way of Homeschooling". I am looking forward to learning and growing more. :) One little step at a time. :)
