I live in a small summer village on a lake in the middle of farmland and forest. It’s beautiful and peaceful and quiet, 3 seasons out of 4. Winter is my favorite. My children are filled with laughter and music that often breaks that serenity; but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I have a fourth child who is in heaven. My husband is a pastor; which makes me a pastor’s wife (and that is pretty much a role on its own). I’ve been an elementary teacher, a social worker, a piano and voice teacher, but am currently staying at home, schooling my children, trying my best to live in the moment.
