From The Commonplace Book

It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that my two children needed me at home more than they needed anything my income would buy for them.
- Jenifer Roback Morse.
and an Einstein quote that I feel complements the above:
Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts. - Albert Einstein
When I start feeling like I should be doing more for our family, my commonplace book is a great encouragement to me. I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing. It may not be what you are supposed to be doing, but it is what God has planned for me right now.

(And a small blog note: I've rearranged some things on here and added lots of great new links - especially in the "Homekeeping" category. I hope you enjoy them like I do!)

Great quotes!

Since I don't have a commonplace book to encourage me, I just started Dr. Laura's "In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms".

Full of wit and sarcasm, in classic Dr. Laura style. :)

I'm glad you realized that what God wants you to do is more important than anything this world could offer you! Love the quotes! Keep up the good work!
