Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

  1. That is lovely – don’t beat yourself up over this Esther. You snapped a little but anyone else would do the same thing … it is trying. So many levels of frustration: not just one trip to the E.R., but follow-ups and Covid worries and traipsing out (likely in the cold rain) and missed school assignments due to the sling and missed sleep. Take care of yourself too. Don’t get rid of the couch – line up all the big stuffies so no one can sit or bounce on it. 🙂


    1. Nah, we’re not getting rid of the couch. I was upset and blamed the couch for it and that was my irrational response to the problem. Yvette gave a good tip about praying over that area since she does that for places in her area where some are accident prone. Makes perfect sense but never crossed my mind till she mentioned it.
      Thanks for your kind words and encouragement! I went berserk from worry, irritability, tiredness, and being upset that our homeschooling plans were going under. This is the first year starting in 2022 fall that our schooling has some structure to it. Took me this many years to get into a routine and discernment of what to do and what not to do. If something goes awry with our studies, it’s not the end of the world, but it felt like it at the time. Getting the momentum back is the hardest.

      1. This house is small and easy to bump into things (mostly due to clutter) (one day it will look better).

        I don’t know how you do it … too many things happening at one time, so I give kudos to you for getting through this. You’re always teaching, even when not in the hours that “school is in session” – I was thinking of Elliot not being able to write or type (if need be) due to the elbow injury.


      2. I’m always bumping into things too! When kiddos were smaller, our space seemed bigger but now we’re all bumping into each other and things too. Lots of stubbed toes here and bruises from hitting against the edge of the table. The worst is when my pant’s pocket get hooked by the cabinet door handle by the sink.
        Thanks Linda for the affirmation! Some days I don’t know how I get through it. I pray in the midst of it and wonder how I’ll pull through, but my God’s grace I can do it…and even with a smile. Then I know that that was God and not me. Eeeek, and here the week starts again! Wishing you a great start too. 🙂
