Mary, Trees Of Transition, is a blogger I’ve been in touch with for quite a while. She has written a couple of guest post for my blog which you can find here and is just one of those lovely people I’ve met in this virtual world. When I saw her post about her engagement I was super happy and asked her if I can share it here on my blog in ‘Couples’. Thankfully she said yes, as I think this is another story about love and that what is meant to be will be. I hope you will enjoy her story as much as I did. Head over to her blog to read more great posts.
Thank you, Mary, for this wonderful post!
As you enjoy this United States’ Mother’s Day weekend, consider: Women who are not mothers currently does not mean they do not WANT Motherhood, but that it has not opened up for them yet. Be hopeful and encouraging!
Marion Garrett stated, “A mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.”

At age 29 I learned what I missed by not going to preschool. As a
preschool aide for a year in a Catholic school, I learned how certain kids howl, run away from teachers, and scream as they start the separation process from Mommy. The first few hours of preschool sounded like school was a very sad place. (Starting preschool looks like it can be a traumatic process for some children.) One little boy and I became quite close because he had not started learning to obey when an adult instructed him to do something, so he received many time outs where he had to be watched to stay in his chair to learn from his consequences. If my parents had taken me to preschool, I might have been in a chair next to him…maybe…We both really liked our own way.

The other perspective of homeschooling. Love to learn more about how it feels to actually BE home-schooled.

Don’t worry, I’m not insulting home schooled students, because I had the super-hero mindset until a fateful day twelve years ago. However, where do home schooled students get this “super-hero” mentality where they believe they can do anything and perhaps even do no wrong?
Well, their biggest model is their parents, and their parents were the ones who chose to go against the system and educate their children themselves. Why wouldn’t these kids think they can do anything!?
