Before I headed out for the day, I checked in with Everyday Mommy to see the results for the Writing from the Heart contest she hosted last month. Although I haven’t read all the entries, I’m working my way through the list. If you’d like to be encouraged (and hear the testimonies about how children teach US about God), hang out there this week during your blogging time. They’re rather diverse AND insightful.
My entry, if I’m not mistaken, had the most comments I’ve ever received on a post. It certainly was heartfelt, almost painful to write…but ultimately redemptive. A warm smile is curling around my lips right now as I consider the irony (?) of my most “challenging” child being the one who has taught me the most about God…. To me, THAT…is…beautiful :).
Good Morning. Thanks for stopping by today and again for the tag. I haven’t been to Everyday Mommy but plan to go read what the children say.
As far as my tag, I’m usually a very strict rule-follower and my “deviation” from the “form” was my lack of paying attention. I actually thought “quotes” were on the assignment, so now we have another category for the Tagging.
Soups: Yucatan Lime is just a chicken broth soup with whatever type of spices you like and lots of lime. Posole has whole hominy in a light broth. I’ll post those recipes soon because they are wonderful for the upcoming season.
Oh I can’t wait to finish reading all the wonderful entries – yours included. I am headed there now to read some more. 🙂 (Right after I take the link to yours.) Okay, I thought I was tagged in your meme, what happened? 🙂
I can’t read them all – too many good blogs out there. sigh –
Here for C&C Monday. You have visited me in the past and I am returning the courtesy.
Get this, Julie, I really did feel bad about tagging you because of your workload w/school :). I’D LOVE FOR YOU TO STILL DO IT, THOUGH, so get to it girlfriend!
Congrats on the Honorable Mention! That post was truly incredible. I’m hoping to get over there to read more this week.
Congratulations! I know it took a lot of courage for you to write that post. Your honor is well deserved 🙂
A well-deserved honor… I’m glad you risked to write it, posted it here (I remember!), then submitted it elsewhere. Congratulations!
