After almost 20 years of teaching my children at home, I have “retired” from teaching and am working almost full-time at our local library. In my precious free time, I am researching and writing my first book. As always, I’m reading up a storm and thinking many thoughts. My life involves many different facets, about which I often ponder in my heart as Mary did. Here are some of the many myriads of thoughts which I am thinking at any moment of time during my full days of library work, reading, writing, thinking, learning, talking, sharing, and meditating. I hope these thoughts will encourage and edify your heart as you read them.
