Do I home school? No. Did I? No. It’s something that I honestly never even considered. It just wouldn’t have been my gig, so to speak. But I sure take my hat off to those of you who do or did! Way to take control of your children's education!
So what has this got to do with my blog then you might ask?
I’ve spent a fair amount of time this last week in waiting rooms, not really by choice but because of things that needed to be dealt with. That being said, Friday morning as DH & I were sitting in yet another waiting room…we watched a Mom and her four children, ages ranging from 5 – 13 (guessing) walk in the building. They headed straight for us with huge smiles on their faces like they thought we were sitting there waiting for them. They didn’t look at anyone else and there were at least a dozen others sitting in the same area. It was almost like they were obeying a homing device that led them directly to us.
They said Good Morning and that they were celebrating their 25th day of homeschooling by committing random acts of kindness.
and other random quotes the Mom said the children picked out. Each card they were passing out was different.
As well as these clever little gifts.
They didn’t hand one to anyone else in that waiting area. How did they know that this was just what I needed to brighten my otherwise not so great day dealing with things I didn’t want to deal with?
We chatted a few minutes but never got their names. I like to believe our meeting was God-ordained. God knew that I and maybe even they needed this chance meeting on a typical Friday morning.
