...so... I have a video to share with you. But it failed to upload properly and it will take too long to try again today. So... Monday I plan to share a video with you.
Naturally, this is a tad frustrating. I much prefer when things work, especially when my plans revolve around said things working. But often in life things don't work. When this happens, our plans need to change. Thankfully, with this blog, I can roll with the changes. We have a similar flexibility in homeschooling to change when situations require it.
Another benefit struck me today: At home, we get to go through the changes and frustrations of life with people we love.
This is a huge benefit.
On the one hand, it's often easier to get through things with people you love. We're doing a home improvement project this weekend and our friends are coming over to help. It makes things much more fun and diffuses frustration.
On the other hand, it's often harder to get through things with family. (Or maybe that's just me.) We're doing a home improvement project this weekend and our friends are coming over to help. It makes things much more fun and diffuses the frustration I experience when it's just Brittany and me working on something. How is this a benefit? First, we can adjust the situations to be less aggravating. Second, we have the opportunity to grow through these moments.
When things go wrong, being with family gives us flexibility and grace to get through it.
Do you notice the benefit of being home with people you love, or--like me--do you more often find yourself in a "growth opportunity" when around your family?
