Link- A Free Emboidery Pattern - Limited Time

A week or so ago I read a lovely post entitiled Cultivating the Fruits of the Spirit: Love at Raising Homemakers. This post is the first in a series that Robin, who is a regular contributor at Raising Homemakers, will write over the next several months and I'm now looking forward to each post! I was struck by Robin's question if I stopped to think about what my family would look like in five years, perhaps because Hannah just recently asked me what I expected to be doing in five years time. I'm currently so busy that I hardly have time to project my thoughts at all, but after reading Robin's post, I recognize that there is more I can do to cultivate the spirit of love in my relationship with Miss Abigail. Five or six years is about the length of time I have left before Abigail should be ready to leave home. I think she knows that I love her, in fact, I'm absolutely sure that she does. But because of the frantic pace we sometimes chase, I don't always "recognize and anticipate the frustrations that provoke you to unloving responses." In fact, my sweet Abigail often takes the brunt of my frustration, even and especially when I am trying so hard to teach and train her. What a wretch I am! Robin offers five gentle suggestions that I think will help me, if I can apply them. So, I thank her for that --and for the lovely embroidery pattern that she and her daughters have designed as a reminder. Please don't miss the post link, which includes a limited time offer for this free pattern from Clementine Patterns Co. Robin promises a free pattern for each of the articles in her series. What a lovely thing to look forward too!
