Hi fellow book lovers, writers, bloggers and other lovelies!

Welcome to MHN. This is the blog of me; a girl who loves to write. I love pouring out my thoughts, and this blog will be a compilation filled with my ramblings, writings, readings, homeschool life, and the other joys of being me.

I’m a daughter of the One true King, God is my rock and my comforter, and He loves you so much. ❀

I started this blog because I wanted a place to pour out my thoughts, and because the thought sounded good. I gave it quite a long break, and then I went back to blogging life. I enjoy it, but it’s very hard!

I love likes, but I love comments even more, and would love it if you guys could leave one after reading. πŸ™‚ I will do my best to respond to them.

Please be polite, respectful, and God-honoring around here, and you may stay as long as your heart desires. πŸ˜‰

I’m so excited to meet all of you!!

 

Be - YOU - ti -f ul!-4

Lest We Forget {100 ANZAC years}

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

 

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

 

Take up your quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

– Dr. John McCrae –

We will remember them.

Lest we forget.

free-Hand-drawn-floral-dividers-6

To all the men and women who served our country. To the thousands of Australians who died; heroes, defending our country. To the wives, mothers and daughters who waited for their husbands, sons and brothers to return, and to those who found their loved ones would not be returning. Whether our soldiers returned home changed forever and survived to tell this horrible story; our veterans; or whether they died fighting for our country, we thank them.

We can’t ever forget the courage; the bravery of the soldiers. That’s why we have this day; April 25th, to commemorate them, so that we never forget. We will always remember them.

We can never thank them enough for what we did for our country. But we can honor them, and we will.

Lest we forget.


p.s unfortunately I do not have any pictures of the ANZAC day service, so I have no featured image. My choir sang there at the dawn and morning service. Let’s take a moment to remember the fallen heroes of our country! ❀

Finally A “Real” Post {6 Reactions to The Sentence, “I’m Home-schooled”}

Hey everyone!

Sorry for that unannounced hiatus since AAWC… And sorry for the other unannounced hiatuses I’ve taken since the start of this year. The truth is, I bummed for post ideas. I have no idea what to write about.

I need your advice: what blog posts would you like to see from me, and should I change my blog name? I feel like My Homeschool Notebook doesn’t really represent this blog anymore. I have no idea what posts I am writing on this blog, and I think AAWC just gave an excuse not to write any real posts… So please comment down below your thoughts. πŸ™‚

Let’s get on with today’s post, 7 Reactions to The Sentence, “I’m Home-schooled”.

First of all, I don’t get annoyed with all if these reactions, because a lot of them are just innocent questions asked by people who’ve never experienced home-school. But some of them just make me think: “Do these people even think before they speak?” πŸ˜›

Honestly, they make me laugh. XD
