Opportunity is missed by most people 
because it is dressed in overalls 
and looks like work.
Thomas Edison 

I'm thankful for my work. The work of making a home, of maintaining relationships with my husband and children, of learning how to live a healthy, God-fearing, wise life, of schooling my children at home. This "work," as it turns out, has afforded me the opportunity to live a healthy, balanced life allowing me to know three amazing people so well. At times the work has seemed daunting and overwhelming, but the work once done has never brought me regret. This opportunity at this time has provided me a full, joyful life. I did not forsee such fullness, yet as I get farther away from the time we made this lifestyle choice, I'm so thankful we did make it.
