The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Importance of Family Gatherings

It's not easy for me.  Family gatherings are difficult for me.  I've lost many family members and friends for one reason or another.  It's a challenge for me to get together with others.  Still, I know that I must interact with people.

Sometimes, I feel I'm being lazy.  I don't call friends or family to see how they are doing.  I also suffer a lot with my skin condition.  I guess I just want to convince myself to reach out.  It's not necessarily that I am afraid to get my feelings hurt.  I know going in that I might get my feelings hurt so I don't have high expectations.

The problem comes when I think of my kids.  They need to have friends.  They need to know their family.  They need to have family and friends that hold them dear.  After all, what if something happened to me, and I couldn't care for them anymore?

That's why I went on an internet search to find articles relating to family gatherings.  One thing you must known about me: I consider my dearest friends as family.  Sometimes, they have stuck with me, through the good times and the bad, like no one else has. 

Enjoy my little list of issues concerning family gatherings--

How about you, my readers?  Have you had family get-togethers?  Do you enjoy family gatherings?  How did you handle family gatherings?  I encourage you to consider family gatherings.  It's a great opportunity to reconnect and boost your mood.  You might just need a little break from the monotony of life.   

If you need to improve your health, in any form, please ask God to help you; he will, if you pray for His guidance.
