Real, Raw, Realities….Baring it all (reposting)

This late night I could not stop the racing of all the thousands of words flowing through my weary Momma brain.

It all started when I quickly ran back to the kitchen sink to turn off the water. I started filling up a pitcher of water. And it was overflowing in the sink.

I felt convicted to have this Clean. Fresh. Well water. be wasted into the drain.

Why?

Because there are so many children, people in the world that don’t even get to experience such a blessing. The blessing of fresh water.

Just moments before I was starting to feel a wave of sadness come over me.

What in the world? Perhaps I’m really tired and need to get to sleep after lathering up with my Lavender essential oils.

You know how women (homeschooling or not) can get all emotional and tied up in a knot over anything. Just depends on……what’s going on in us at the moment.

At any rate….the overflowing, wasted water SNAPPED me out of that prior wave of sorrow that was slowly making its way to overtake me.

Then I started to consider all of the things that I have to be thankful for…….

Then the fresh, clean thoughts of gratitude started to overflow.

* It’s almost midnight and I’m about to go to bed with my husband to lie beside me. I’ll probably snuggle up beside him. It’s our normal sleeping position.

* Today I’ve been told so many times, “I love you” that I don’t know the count.

* My kids hugged me tight before they went to bed.

* Today we had the resources to be able to pay some bills. It’s not always the case.

*I’m so grateful to have unlimited data on my cell phone. Ha!

*I drove to Hendersonville twice after dropping off my 16 year old off for her first *solo* paid violin gig AND made it back home each time without any accidents or problems with our vehicle that’s over 300k miles.

*My almost 19 year old African American son is STILL alive. He called me yesterday from bootcamp to bring me up to speed on him being processed to come back home due to some medical issues. He told me, “I love you SO much Mom. I can’t wait to get back home.”

*Yesterday I made a new friend. She’s a *white* homeschooling lady. We shared a 1-1/2 hour drive yesterday to a meeting concerning *justice* for *black* people. She moved me to tears by sharing her testimony of God’s saving grace in her life. She shared the most intimate of her testimony with me……right off the bat. We are just starting to get to know each other. She trusted me enough…to tell me her story though. :/

*I had strength and health in my body to clean my bathrooms, mop the floors of my house, repair a few things in the house, wash dishes, send out emails, make some calls and complete some homeschool paperwork for my association.

*This week….every day this week, I received an email or text message saying that something I posted on social media encouraged them greatly. They thanked me!

*Several people this week asked me to pray for them. They honored *me* by asking me to partner with them in faith for the situation in which they were walking through.

*These same people who asked me to pray……believed that the God of all the Universe whose Son is Jesus Christ, in Whom I serve, can intervene and change their situation.

*I asked for their prayers too.

*My husband called me, “Babe” and told me he loved me. He blew a kiss at me when I quickly stopped by his mobile coffee truck.

*Last night, I had a friend tell me to pray for her as she was forced into a divorce that she doesn’t want from a spouse she still desires to be married to.

*My relationship with my husband isn’t always so *sweet* and *mushy.* Earlier this week it was a bit cold and distant.

*My Mom is still alive. She messaged me on FB and sent me a Marco Polo message. She said she was praying for me…..for my strength.

*Yesterday, I encouraged a teen boy who isn’t living with his family nor parents right now. He misses them and wants to go home to them. He’s in foster care.

*I realize how amazing and wise my Mom is. Sadly, I’ve not always held these sentiments.

*This evening the Lord gave me fresh vision and plans for my homeschool Academy!

*He’s (the Lord) confirmed my purpose in the homeschooling community. I’m humbled.

*I’m not where I want to be in the growth of my MLM business.

*My business team is building up confidence and are making it happen.

*I get to work from home and stay with my children, raise them, be with them, teach them, instruct them in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

*Often I don’t act as if I’m grateful.

*This week I’ve experienced every emotion possible. I was brought to tears of joy. Tears of sadness. Tears of broken-heartedness. Tears of gratefulness. Joy accompanied with laughter. Shock at unexpected news. Concern. Fear. Anger….Pizza Hut botched my Academy order again. this week. Frustration. Humility. Praise. Overwhelming gratitude.

*I’m still alive! And can *feel.*

*Tonight, I started to compare my body with another women’s body. Then I remembered all the things the Lord allowed me to get done with strength, His breath in my lungs. I then gave the Lord thanks for who she was and who I am. 🙂

*All week I played Christ Church channel on Pandora. It encouraged my heart over and over and brought me closer to the Maker of My Soul. I even sung out loud….Really LOUD in worship to Him.

*This week as is a normal practice…..I kicked some *devil butt* through warfare prayer! Ha!

*The journey of Unschooling is coming along well. My children all told me they are loving Math so much. They want to be *super smart* in math.

*This morning and every morning…..I had a Bible to read. I read it. I received some amazing promises and reminders through God’s Written Word and spoken Word to my heart.

*I heard of a story of a woman who is Arabic and was told the gospel message of Jesus over three years. She was given a Bible. She cried for tears of joy when she received it. She never would have ownership of a Bible otherwise if my *new* friend didn’t give her one.

*Same woman said she believed the gospel message but if she accepted it as her faith she’d loose her children. 😦 She has six children.

*My faith in Jesus the Christ is without possible persecution (as of this writing).

*This week I made some one pretty angry and she let me know in some many choice words. I spoke about *racism.* I boldly rebuttaled without biting my tongue. I stood up *justly.*

*A homeschooling mom shared with me that she is walking through a very tough time with her teenage sons. She’s single as her husband passed some years ago.

*I was able to identify with her. My heart is breaking over a child too. But my husband and I are together. Standing together.

*Today I spoke with several homeschooling members of my association. They were grateful for my service.

*Every day this week…..we’ve had food to eat in the Perry home. Many were not as fortunate. I know.

*The families of my homeschool Academy told me they were grateful for me, my children and my family. They blessed us with hugs, money and speaking good of our name. (A good name is to be desired above rubies.)

*This week I cried out to God for someone who played a part in bringing a place of sadness to our family. I’m not hating. I’m loving her towards repentance through prayer.

* My perspective have been shifting a lot regarding a lot of things in this life. I’m growing up….even at 44 years of age.

* I was given a book written by TuPac. I never thought I’d read anything from him. But I’m really excited to read his book of poetry. My son desires to publish a book of his poems. I don’t think this *gift* was given by accident.

So many raw, real, realities hidden within gratefulness that were trying to be covered up by a wave of sadness!!

I couldn’t go to bed this *morning* (12:42 a.m. now) without getting all of this off my chest.

Homeschooling reader…….social media friend……foe…….

Life is messy.

It brings wounds.

It draws us to places of rawness.

All of our emotions are tapped in some way.

And in all of that realness of life…..

I HAVE TO HOMESCHOOL.

I HAVE TO COMPLETE YOUTUBE VLOGS.

I HAVE TO LEAD VARIOUS GROUPS.

I HAVE TO ANSWER PHONE CALLS.

And……KEEP IT ALL TOGETHER!

I’m resolved.

My life is NOT worth living unless I am poured out like a drink offering.

I mean……

I don’t want my life to be just “happy, happy, happy.”

If my life is just “happy, happy, happy” then I’ve focused on myself and what I want to keep me happy.

I’m not a drink offering. I’m just a drink. Filling up my cup so I can enjoy the substance therein.

The reality would then be…..

I didn’t connect with other’s lives. Their raw areas.

I didn’t put myself out there to be:

disappointed, cut up with their words, misunderstood, hurt, conditionally loved, thanked, contacted for help, inquired for prayer, hear their stories, welcomed into the privacy of where they are…..etc.

Happy, Happy, Happy……..that life isn’t for me.

So tonight (this morning)…..

The real, raw, realities of my homeschool life is not perfect.

There are some places of hurt with open wounds.

But….. there is also SO MUCH MORE that is good, beautiful, lovely, heart warming, special, growing, blooming, God-sized AWESOME.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow. (It’s a homeschooling day for us….we are trying to get to 180 by the end of May…Ha!)

But for now…… I’m more than ok. 🙂

Just needed to slow down and think on it in bite-sized pieces of goodness.

It being…..gratefulnesses. 🙂

Why don’t you take some time to do the same?

Embrace the real, raw, realities to be found within your life as you homeschool and live.

Just know equally are the bite-sized pieces of goodness too.

Sending love, hugs and strength to You for the journey!

Be real. Be raw. Accept the realities. Count your blessings. Be a drink offering that’s poured out.

It is worth it!

(You are so welcomed to share this on your social media page, with homeschooling friends, family…humans. It just may be the encouragement they need.)

How is a student to know his/her strengths, skills and likes?

Homeschool students come in all sorts of flavors.

Those who know clearly from birth what they’d like to do with their lives.

Those who know they want to do something specific with their lives but just aren’t clear on what it is.

Those who have no clue about nothing and are enjoying being a student, staying home and chilling. (They do eventually figure it out but maybe later on down the road)

The reality is that each of our children, as well as we as parents, are given gifts, skills strengths, talents and abilities that are entrusted to us by God-Yahweh.

Often, these treasures aren’t tapped into or thought on until they are well into their adulthood.

Students learning their strengths.PNG

Well…what if you have a way to *help* discover these beautiful seeds of blessings that the Lord has given to each of them while they are seeking direction for their future?

Here is a resource I’d like to share with the homeschooling community that may help, could provide direction or provide some consideration.

Cliff Strengths Test may be a great help for our homeschooling high school students.

This test is often given to students while in college.

But why wait……this may be key to helping our students hone in their God-given talents  and strengths sooner than later which in turn could put them on a direct course for their life.

There is a small fee to take the test if you’d care to have your student do so.

The website (link below) will direct you as needed.

Click on the link to the website >>>> Strengths Quest Test

Also…..<<clearing my throat>> I am not receiving any compensation nor kickback for sharing this test.

My college daughter who attends a private Christian college recently completed the test and it is SPOT on correct. To the ‘T.’

So I thought I’d share it this resource with YOU! 🙂

This is suggestive. I don’t promise you anything. But offer you a resource to try at your own risk. 🙂

Share results or thoughts if you choose to allow your student to take part in this Strengtsh Quest Test. 🙂 I love to hear about it!

(Share this post with a friend. They may just be *hoping and praying* for a resource for their high school student during these formative years of preparation into adulthood.)

We’ve got high hopes. We’ve got high in the sky homeschool hopes.

Seventeen years of homeschooling. Seventeen years!

And as of this post, another homeschooling year is now upon us.

As always….. I have high hopes.

High in the sky homeschool hopes.

I will say that months and months has gone by as I pondered and thought of what the year will look like.

Which courses I desire to complete for the new year. Will I have a structured schedule or not. Books or not. Curriculum focuses or unschooling feel. Morning schooling or afternoon schooling. The length of time I desire to spend the day in schooling.

Ohhhhh….the things I consider every. single. year.

The day after Labor day is when our family generally starts our homeschooling year.

This has been the schedule for us since we moved to South Carolina from Virginia 12 years ago. I’ve had this same schooling schedule all my years through school as well. Start after Labor Day.

It’s a habit hard to break.

Right about now my children start to get the itch to get back to homeschooling. The break is long enough for them.

Yesterday, my 13 year old begged me to let her start her math.

“But I’m not ready for all that just yet,”, I wined.” (Bad Mom right? But I’m not ready!)

Today again, she lamented, “Please Mom can I get started with my school work.”

I pushed back and jerked out, “Later, I’ll show you.”

Again, she pleaded with me, “Mom, when can you show me my Math work.”

Uugghhhh…..finally, I sat down and walked her through how we will use Khan Academy for her Pre-Algebra math and Virtual Homeschool Group for her science.

Uhhhmmm……..”Happy Much,” was the look I gave her. I was in a bit of disgust with her excitement.

But I’m not ready. Next week is almost here. I still wanna play with snap chat! (I do have a life outside of all my *business-professional-racial justice-side of me.*

Screenshot_2017-08-14-18-42-58

Excitedly she perked up and blurted out, “Tomorrow I can get up early and do my math, right? It probably would be best.”

“Yeah, I guess.” Sulkenly I begroaned.

Moms, see……I’ve not got all the details laid out yet. I only sketch some thoughts on paper this morning while I was in a meeting.

My high hopes is to create a detailed schedule so-that-every-minute-of-our-schooling-is timed-and-I-know-who-I’m-doing-what-with-at-what-time-while-the-other-is-doing-another-subject.

My high hopes is to start our schooling day after 1 p.m.! Yes, after 1 p.m.  You read correctly. And end the date at 4 p.m. Yes, 4 p.m.!!! That’s only 3 hours. Yes, but a lot will get done. Enough will. Well, what I’ve planned will get done. 🙂

I have realized that as I’m so close to 45 years of age my body does not get going well until around 10ish a.m. By the time I have my quiet time, shower, get all dolled up for the day (that only includes getting dressed, putting my locs in a pony tail and putting on essential oils), check for important social media or email messages it’s close to 11 a.m. Then we need to clean a bit then it’s lunch. So 1 p.m. is feeling and looking SOOOOO good right now.

All are happy about that idea of starting in the afternoon EXCEPT my rising 8th grader. Ugghhhh!! As mentioned, she wants to get started early in the morning.

‘Well….ok little darlin’. Go right ahead! Geesh. (Lol!!)

What will my younger four do during the morning hours you ask?

Well, no worries. I have it all planned out. I mean. Pretty much.

They will have work they can get done without me.

Quite time reading, journaling, writing and mapping.

Ok…..let me reel this all back in.

My point is that I have HIGH HOPES for my homeschooling year for 2017-2018.

I will have my nice little schedule all in place. My new chore list will be in place.

My resources for schooling will be in place.

My children will know their chores to do each day, their work that needs to be completed and the time frame in which it will be expected to be completed.

BUT…..

As a seasoned homeschooler I know that I may have to change, adjust and bend just a bit because we homeschool in the middle of REAL LIFE.

Yes! Real life!!!

And all of my beautiful well planned out homeschooling year may not go as I …. uuhhhmmmm…. planned.

If you don’t know yet….. I’m going to tell you NOW!

Learn to bend. Learn to be flexible. Learn to recognize when a plan isn’t coming together. Learn when you may need to tweek just a bit. And learn when you need to put your heels down in the ground and stay focused to make your schedule work as you planned.

Yeah….all that sounds easy….peasy. Right?

Of course!!

Give yourself grace as needed. I am.

I’m homeschooling FIVE children this year!

I’m lathering on the grace like chocolate lathered all over delicious Krispy Kreme donuts.…which I don’t eat by the way.

But you get what I’m saying.

I’ll be homeschooling with high hopes. High in the sky hopes that all will flow beautifully. But if it doesn’t on that particular day….. I’m going to give myself grace.

Do what we definitely can do and pick up the next day and ensure we hit 180 days or beyond as we get all of the planned work done.

If we keep this fLeXiBiLiTy in view then we will make it successfully to the goal.

Be sure to set your goal(s). Or else you’ll never know if you’ve reached them.

If you need help or have questions along the journey……

I’m just a call, text or email away.

This homeschooling Option 3 director with high in the sky homeschooling hopes is right in the thick of it too. 🙂

2017-2018 homeschooling year…..‘WE GOT YOU!!’

The thrills of tight rope walking….I mean, homeschooling.

It’s that time of year!!!

For many, their 2017-2018 homeschooling year has begun.

For others, they are preparing to get started in a week or so.

For people like me who are use to living in Virginia and school starting after Labor Day, we have a few more weeks of planning, thinking and enjoying the summer as we approach fall.

This year I’ve had a record number of new families join UCHU-AA.

I look forward to speaking with each of you by phone in the coming weeks during my care calls.

The returning families that I have the pleasure to serve another year under Option 3 AA – Thank you! Here’s to another smooth sailing year!

Members of my association I want you to know that I pray for my families. Each and every one.

I believe that each person I have the wonderful privilege to serve is divinely positioned for that year, for that season.

In other words, you are NOT with UCHU-AA by accident. 🙂

My words of encouragement for you today…

Part of my job is to provide legal accountability as well as help you navigate your ‘walk across the tight rope.’

homeschool tight rope walking.jpg

Many families I’ve spoken to have have expressed different levels of uncertainty regarding homeshooling.

As always, I encourage them in the fact that, THEY CAN DO IT!

They CAN make it across the tight rope.

Well, let me explain.

Here are some facts about walking a tight rope. It’s much like homeschooling.

  1. Walking a tight rope is not as easy as it appears. Just like homeschooling. But it’s doable.
  2. Tight rope walking is done across a wire with tension applied between two points. Much like homeschooling. The ‘wire of tension’ is the day in and day out of homeschooling. The two points in which this ‘tension’ is applied is at the first day you start and the finish line (Whatever the finish line is or you. Up to high school, graduation, finishing elementary).
  3. In tight rope walking the use of an umbrella, bar or something to help with balance is used. Likewise, for homeschoolers we use various types of support, books, videos, tutors etc. to help us balance along this journey towards success.
  4. Tight rope walking can and often will take you across some dangerous areas. Likewise, homeschooling promises to do the same.
  5. Tight rope walkers and homeschooling parents equally have a high percentage of making it to the other side safely. Yay!!!

As one that is afraid of heights (me)……I’ll take homeschooling ANY old day over tight rope walking.

If you are one who enjoys the thrill, the racing heart and exhilaration then homeschooling is definitely FOR YOU!!!

You’ll walk away with all of those ‘feels.’

So what do you have to loose? Enjoy homeschooling and don’t worry about the possibility of dying.

Tight rope walkers learn, practice and strategize in such a way they are pretty sure they aren’t going to die.

Parents/Guardians you can count on not dying as you homeschool. 🙂

I’ve not heard of that happening. Not once. <<wink>>
