A Quote for the Day

A Quote for the Day

Solitude is not something you must hope for in the future. Rather, it is a deepening of the present, and unless you look for it in the present you will never find it. - Thomas Merton

This is so true! Thank you for sharing this with me. My days are very busy--homeschooling our boys and caring for our home--I needed to read this today!

Sometimes for a busy parent (for me at least) the most solitudinous place is the car - I had a very nice chat with God last week driving in the blowing snowy wind. It's hard not to feel guilty sometimes that you're not doing something when you're a parent. Good luck with the homeschooling Kathleen - I did it for my girls for about a year. It's challenging but wow, the effect you can have is tremendous.
