Day of Inspiration

Today was a day of constant inspiration! :-) This morning, I got to sit in on a wonderful class by our homeschool group, on the subject of "Perseverence" with a book discussion on "The Lonesome Gods" by L'Amour. The class was taught by a talented fourteen year old young man, and I learned some things I really needed to hear! 

Later this afternoon, I got to hear four VERY talented and well-trained kids from 12 on down play gorgeous, difficult classical piano pieces. I was so impressed! And I'm thankful for the opportunity and example!

Then this evening, listened to a dear friend give a presentation on the life and works of her grandmother, artist Minerva Teichert. What a talent and what a life devoted to her family and her faith! 

Lately I've been pondering the importance of inspiration. I want my home, my surroundings, and my life to be surrounded by things that truly uplift and inspire me to be a better person. I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me such a beautiful day to ponder upon!

Love, Mama Rachel
