As far as kids and young mothers are concerned, summer is over. Except for the weather, summer 2016 is but a memory, and another school year has begun. Mothers everywhere are heaving a sigh of relief. Teachers on the other hand ... This was my daughter’s first summer as a stay at home mom. She began the season with a reasonable amount of trepidation, and ended with an enormous amount of exhaustion.

It’s an old saying to live everyday as if it is a gift. Unfortunately, amidst the chaos of life, that principle is usually not the first thing on my mind. There are arguments to break up, laundry to do, schedules to follow, meals to prepare, and a million “why” questions from children with seemingly obvious answers. So some days life seems a little more exhausting than enjoyable. If you’re fortunate, you get to wake up to do it all over again. Many of you already know that our daughter was involved in a very serious accident a few weeks ago in which she was flown to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
