I took the kids to a Classical Conversations Camp. I think these camps are wonderful and very economically priced. While the kids are at their camps, I get to attend a Practicum and learn lots of things that I’ll be able to put into practice next year hopefully!
From the time I showed up at the building people began offering to help me. A couple of people helped me with my son who fell on the way in and was crying. Someone offered to carry my books. Someone else asked if they could carry the baby. Several offered to take my kids to their classes. I kept thinking that these are just the nicest people. Then it hit me. I must be a sight. I had to laugh.
Haggard, arriving just before the program started, and with five kids in tow, one of them crying–can you picture it? I need help! I do. It’s hard to accept it, to admit it, but it’s true. I am very thankful for all the help I received and that the Lord brought all these people my way just when I needed them!
I’m linked with Women Living Well.
Esther, it’s actually very humble of you to accept the help. I’m glad the Lord sent those people your way to bless you and for you to bless them.
Wish I could be there to offer whatever help I could give. You do just fine, though.

Accepting help is so hard… It was probably one of my biggest struggles when my children were little. It always made me feel like I was a failure. But I never see anyone ELSE that way when they ask for help, so I’m not sure how I got that into my head.
Accepting help is a good idea. It is tough to say yes, but in this case it worked out for the best. I often will hold a shopping cart while a mother tries to sit her child in it.
