β€œThe best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”

Tips to Simply Life With Kids

Here are a few tips for living simply with kids:

  • Homeschool β€” or, in my case, unschool
  • Use public transportation, walk or ride bikes
  • Ditch the television and play games instead
  • Get a family pet from a local shelter
  • Encourage your kids to journal and draw daily
  • Make community service a weekly activity
  • Shop locally to keep dollars in your community
  • Keep a garden and raise chickens
  • Visit thrift stores instead of buying new
  • Sponsor a child in a third world country
  • Visit the library frequently

MwsR Writings


“Some of God’s greatest gifts are UNANSWERED prayers.”🎢

I have slowly realized this as I age. Notice I wrote age not get old…lol
I sometimes contemplate my whole life, the good, the bad, the unpredictable, the messy, the sadness, and pain, the joy, the same, and it is overwhelming at times.
Much of what I thought I wanted, I really didn’t. Much of what I thought I needed, more than not, it was not true.
Why do we presume that we can control our lives in every facet? Do we not know from past times and lots of “do-overs”, we can’t!
I guess the important lesson we should take from this is, that taking one step forward sometimes is all we can do and wanting something doesn’t mean we need it.
Learn to let yourself off the hook because there is no way we know what all we really need nor do we know what is always best for us. We are bound to mess up. We are going to seek the wrong things at times. That is just our nature.
Trust that there is an Almighty power at work in this life. Look to him for your answers.
