The Dash (Feb. 17, 2007)

This week I have been thinking about my role in “The Dash”- You know… the thing which comes between the date of birth and date of death on a tombstone? The Dash. That’s what we live. So how’s your dash? Worth writing about? When we die, people will look at our tombstone and wonder about the dash. Our children will remember it! Just a thought. Probably not worth 2 cents. :)

I have been reading (or recently read) two books which have changed my outlook. One is called "Lies Homeschool Moms Believe" I was wonderfullly freeing to realize that the pressure I had put myself under to be like "Mrs. X" were really lies!!! No one else has the perfect house, perfect kids, perfect life, etc. We all have strengths, and we ALL have weaknesses! No one has everything all together. And if someone feels they do, the addition of a newborn will throw that theory in the trash. It's a great book. It's worth buying for the illustrations alone.

I am also in the middle of, "Lord, Meet Me in the Laundry Room"- it is EXCELLENT!!! I'll have to write a review on it later, after I have finished. But while you are ordering the first book, go ahead and get the second. You'll not regret it!
