I still have three more homeschool students to go who are 6th, 8th and 11th grad this year and they really do need to be my main focus.
Ministry is just plain hard some days and now that we're in it full time, I appreciate all the people who served us along the way. I know I surely didn't take enough time to pray for and encourage them as much as I should have. If people knew how hard a toll it takes on their pastors and families I think they'd be a bit more supportive.
I will find a way to make HYCCT work as my motivation is pretty strong with my mom now with metastasized breast cancer and a member of our church recently diagnosed with her second bout of breast cancer!
I think its pretty impressive that you homeschool, are in the service profession and find any time for a hobby! Sounds like superwoman to me! But I agree, you need to keep scrapping fun and relaxing. Don't let it become a job or you will be looking to add something else to your plate to relax and enjoy.
