A Wonderful Way to End a Day...

What a sweet blessing it was this evening
when Ally invited me to share
a few warm, delicious moments together...

Tea pot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My daughter there's always time for you.

A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend.

and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

Jane said...

You look like you had a lovely time. How sweet that you were able to spend time together.


Tina said...

That is so sweet.

If you ever get the time Christina, I would love to hear more about how you school, what you use and do with each child, etc. I feel God may be leading me to a more relaxed, natural approach to school, but I am kind of scared.

I would also love to see your schedule. There is no hurry and don't feel like you even have to. Only if you get the chance. I know you are busy!

I do love your blog. Your children are so blessed to have you for a mother! You are a shining, godly example for us struggling ones like me, and a great encouragement.

Awww!!! How sweet of her to do that for you two. I know you enjoyed that!!


At first I could not tell the Mother from the daughter. That was a very thoughtful thing for a daughter to do for her Mother and a very loving thing for her Mother to do for her. connie from Texas

Congratulations on your new schedule! I really think that it's great to have a balance. We sort of ride the fence.....having relaxed school...yet structured too. It's good to see you guys with your tea time. How sweet. You guys look so much alike!

Tracy ~ Thank you. ;o)

Ginny ~ lol... Thank you, too. ;o)

Pam ~ It really was a sweet moment together. We surely do treasure those moments. ;o)

Jodi ~ Thank you. I loved those quotes, too. Yes, daughters do grow up to be special friends. How precious that is, too! ;o)

Kristy Jo ~ Thank you. ;o)

Mommy ~ Aww! The sweetness is a family trait. ;o)
Yes, that is Aunt Stella's hat. I knew you would recognize it. ;o) I'm thankful we inherited it. Love you!

Jane ~ We did have a lovely time. Thank you. It was a very sweet time together. ;o)

Tina ~ Thank you very much for your kind words. They are a blessing more than I can explain.

I will try to share what we are doing for our 'schedule' soon.
If you are interested in seeing what we do/use for learning, you can visit my Homeschool Open House in my left sidebar. I shared a lot of what we are using there.
Also, if you are considering a more relaxed approach to homeschooling, there are some great books listed in my sidebar that I recommend. But, of course, with all things, you'll need to "chew on the meat and spit out the bones". ;o)
Hope that helps some, too. Please let me know if I can help more. ;o)

Robin ~ Thank you for your comment, for your congratulations, for letting me know about your contest, and for visiting! I was delighted to hear from you and look forward to checking into your contest. ;o)

Julie ~ Yes, it was very sweet and we both enjoyed it very much. ;o) It was a precious mother/daughter/friend time.

Connie ~ Aw, Connie, thank you. It's always a blessing to hear that daughter resembles mother. ;o)

Kelley ~ Thank you. Yes, it was a very wonderful way to end the day. ;o) It was good to hear from you, again.

Deby ~ I'm sure your nieces will love the tea set. What a lovely gift! I hope you get lots of photos, too! ;o)

Mrs. Garcia ~ Thank you SO much for your wishes, thoughts, and prayers. They are such a special, special blessing to us.

Melissa ~ Thank you. It was a very fun mother/daughter time. We love the hat, too. It belonged to my aunt, who is in Glory now, so it is particularly special to us. ;o)
Thank you for visiting! ;o)

Susan ~ Hi! Thank you. It's always a joy to know we look alike. I look forward to finding a good balance but I won't mind "riding the fence". I just love being relaxed but I do look forward to some specific routine. ;o)
I was glad to hear from you. I look forward to checking out y'all's new addition. ;o)

~ Christina

How sweet! =) I don't remember doing that with my mama, but I do know my sis and I spent many special times like that with our grandmama. It's something I can't wait to do with Princess JoJo and any other princesses the Lord blesses us with! My MIL can't wait either. She is always talking of tea parties with Princess JoJo and my niece, so I bought her the tea set for Christmas! ;) hehe
Christian Love,
MarineMama (Megan)
