    In some ways it’s far easier when the kids know our resources are so limited we have to save up for necessities like snow boots. I’ve found there is little complaining or longing for luxuries they see other kids have. Just, a few of my boys wish they could get a job at 6…
    Love the outside focus. So much of God’s ways have to do with what we think about. None of our lives are about “me”. Gratitude is a natural product of remembering this.
