Inspiration For The New Year {My January Mother’s Morning Basket}

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you all had a blessed Christmas time with family and friends. We spent Christmas with my husband’s family in Lydenburg. (As a result, Rafe has now added the word “cousins” to his vocabulary.)

The mother’s morning basket has turned out to be just what I needed. For the first time in a long time, I feel I’m actually getting to read something for my own sake, and not for school or as a readaloud. I don’t read every book in the basket every day, and sometimes I don’t even manage a an entire chapter in one go, but it doesn’t matter because it’s reading for me.

It’s tradition that my Mom buys me a devotional every Christmas. The last couple of years it’s been Nina Smit. I did ask her if she was hinting at something with the large print. (Jacques gleefully pointed out some grey hairs the other day, so I reminded him he’s actually older than me.)

I have started keeping a commonplace journal as well. I’m not used to writing in cursive these days, and it shows. So far, all my quotes are from pre-reading Angie’s books. (We start school on Monday and I can’t wait!)
