Sono Harris passed away over the weekend. Wife of Greg Harris, mother of Josh and other really gracious kids that I've chatted with in the vendor hall at conventions. Joshua Harris gives information about her cancer and passing here.
I remember attending a workshop of Sono's at a convention some years back. She talked about "God, Our Present Help" and she identified some of the negative feelings homeschool mom's encounter: lonliness and isolation, weariness, frustration and disappointment. She said to let our difficulties be opportunities for God to work for and through you. She said that parent/child relationships are not for ease and happiness but are the context for the change God works in and through us. God is working in you and you may not be cooperating yet.
I found much wisdom in this woman, homeschooling's consummate mother. Her present rest is well deserved, though she'd probably correct me and say it's all really grace.
