Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to our dear readers. No matter what has brought you to this day, your journey through the most difficult and beautiful days of your life may you enjoy today with your children.

(Or not, there is something to be said for sneaking away to be childless for the day and get a pedicure or go fishing..)

Please share your greatest mothering triumphs, times when things went a little screwy or just whatever you’d like to share in our comments below. We’ll resume regular posting tomorrow.

    Just came across this website, and wanted to applaud you for creating it.
    As we move into a future of depleted energy, social chaos is inevitable. As that happens religious crazies of every hue will seek to infect society with their evil. Religion has always been about control, the strong over the weak, or in the case of the ‘quiver’ nonsense, weak men controlling gullible women in the name of a bronze-age godcult. Websites such as this will tell women of the strength they have to reject such rubbish

    My greatest mothering triumph? Two beautiful human beings who make me proud every day with how little they are like me, and how I could never in my wildest dreams have imagined peeps as amazing as they are! I sometimes catch a glimpse of me buried in all that beauty, and that also makes me smile. I am so grateful for the love they freely give me in spite of knowing better than anyone else in the whole world!

    Home school families have the opportunity to be that: havens of unconditional love and support. Or they can try to be fundamentalist factories, where every deviation from the dogma demands is frowned on. I am blessed to be one of the former, though I did my share of frowning and lamenting before figuring out how MUCH BETTER THINGS ARE the way they turned out than the way I planned!! =D =D =D

    Love you, my family!
