The Law of Unintended - Wonderful - Consequences

Today is the last day of Ballet Camp.


(And I still can't figure out why I'm tired, when my daughter is doing all the work? Hmm.)

This morning, I got to thinking about the wonderful things that have happened as a result of our eldest's commitment to running her own business. 

The biggest one by far?  Unity in our family.

It has been amazing - and wonderful - to see how all the siblings have pitched in to help their sister in her time of need.  Nathaniel is the cameraman, general mover-of-large-objects, and setter-up-of-all-things-sprinkler-like for Splash Day.  Emily encourages the little girls, and while she's just a bit too young to teach, she's the snack mistress and craft coordinator.  Hannah is actually in ballet camp (her last year!  sniff. . . . ) and has been a wonderful example to all the younger girls, an encourager, and has helped with costumes.

Amy just dances.  Well, kinda.  She's along for the ride.  Her time's a-comin', I'm sure!!

(Me?  What do I do?  Take care of the dog.  And stay out of the way.  Mostly on my laptop, planning school.  But that's another blog post.)

That has been something I never could have seen coming, and I'm so thankful the Lord has given our kids a way to work together, serve Him, and serve each other.

Unintended, but wonderful.  And a blessing to this mama's heart.

Agreed. Family unity is a blessing. Glad for you!

Working on my lesson plans this week too with much fear and trepidation. :/
