Knit Together

I have a handful of friends (non-blogger) that I confide in. None of which share my views on homeschooling. Both the decision to homeschool and then not to homeschool were very challenging for me. Yet when I posted about them, in both instances, I received so much feedback and encouragement from many bloggers.

Even now my post “I Knew From The Start…“,has received so much feedback. All of your kind words have touched my heart deeply. I have never felt more understood. You have all said the exact things that I’ve needed to hear. You guys understand what it’s like to make the decision to homeschool or to not homeschool.

Many of you understand the sacrifice that comes along with educating your children at home. You understand the joys and the challenges. You understand the feelings of defeat and failure that can accompany the decision to send your homeschooled children back to public school, yet you haven’t judged me. You have embraced, consoled and encouraged me. I am very grateful to have you as my readers and my friends.

    Hadias, I am so thrilled you have felt so much support!! Too often we get caught up in the attitude of our way is the only right way. Only God can guide and lead us individually, as well as collectively!!

    God bless,

    I have to echo the same sentiment. My online friends and bloggy buddies are my confidants and staunchest supporters. I know a lot of ladoes who say this. Those I know in the “real” world are busy with their own problems, and most of my family are not terribly supportive of what we do no matter what their views are. If it were not for my online friends, I would feel very alone too.

    Hadias, your blog always inspires me and you have been in my thoughts and prayers over your homeschool decisions. I really admire your strength and commitment to your family, and your strong faith.

    I have good friends online, as well. If it was not for my online friends, I would feel very lonely. The people in my real life, like you said, are not very supportive of most of my school decisions. It is so nice to have encouragement when you need it most & from people who can empathize!! 🙂

    (I am having a series of bloggy giveaways on my blog Hadias. I don’t know if you’ll be interested in any of my giveaways, but I would love for you to pop over and enter if you are!) 🙂
