Around the World:
This short, powerful, little post What I Know from In the Details just makes my heart well up.
Mamas, you will love this Mother Letter from one of my new favorite bloggers, Sarah Bessey, where she encourages you to find freedom from the notion that the The Perfect Mother exists. I couldn’t agree more.
This week I’ve read several good posts about enduring the waiting process. (Um, hello God, are you trying to tell me something?) Here are two: Escaping the Rut of Want by Lysa Terkeurst and Waiting for God’s Gifts by Kris.
My highschool friend Amanda (thanks facebook, for reconnecting us) wrote an intelligent letter to Hilary Rosen (a Democratic strategist) about her recent remarks on Anderson Cooper 360 about SAHMs that will leave you laughing… and thinking.

Thanks for all of the buzz on twitter and facebook from my post about knowing the goal of your parenting this week. I’m glad it resonated with you. If you missed it, you can read it here: Parenting to Build Relationship, Not Robots.
It’s been a little quiet around here lately. Honestly? That’s because I have nearly 10 posts, all about 90% written… just waiting to be edited. And I keep writing more before I finish editing the other ones… cuz the writing part is too good for my soul… and the ideas don’t stop coming. (Tell me some of you also do this?) I find editing to be the hard part, always battling this it-has-to-be-just-right-so-I’m-not-misunderstood thing in my mind. (At least when I’m writing posts that are “important” to me.) I need a “quiet” space to do that… and—oh surprise—there’s not much quiet in my life at the moment.
Also, I’ve been working behind the scenes to launch this year’s Bloggers for Birth Kits Mothers Day drive. (Are you as exited as I am?) Look for the kick off this week!
Around Click Clink Five:
- Writing behind the scenes | The ministry of writing
- It is possible to spoil a baby? | How much is “too much”?
- Guard your heart | When things happen that hurt your feelings
- Fear and love and letting go | And how the character of God factors in there
- Awake | On insomnia and listening and margins and noise
- The loop (and staying in it) | Keeping abreast of current events
- Quit stalling and get ‘er done | Turning those nagging feelings into warm fuzzies
CC5 is my other blog where I write for five minutes every day on topics from faith to politics, entertainment to travel to… you name it. Oh, and this wee little blog is unfancy and unedited. Stream-of-conscious, baby.
How lucky am I to have captured this brief moment? *sigh* Love.
