Elizabeth Foss' latest article is well worth the few minutes it takes to read it!
Thank you for writing this Elizabeth. I am guilty of the comparing as I know so many moms are. Slowly I am learning to take even ALL the good, the beautiful, the worthwhile and the lovely out there with a grain of salt. Even if an idea is good and worthy, but it is keeping me from my children because I am concerned with keeping up and "doing it all," then it's not worth it. To put it this way: I can either spend days preparing an elaborate art project when we are already stressed and overloaded OR I can sit down and color with them instead.
I am thankful for all the lovely blogging ladies out there who share the beautiful gifts and inspiration they have to offer. I love surrounding myself with your beauty. Thank you for giving ideas (either to use now or judiciously tuck away), inspiration, encouragement, friendship and laughter. Blogging can be a blessing and a very good thing. I pray I may always strive to be this blessing to others.
Blessings for your weekend friends!
