Here are some things out on the interwebz that I’ve liked lately.
Things a Mom Does For A Picture. I will never get this kid’s expression out of my mind. Next time I’m having a bad day, I’m going here. Instant smiles.
Why I Lost Faith In the Pro-Choice Movement. A gal explains what turned her opinion from pro-choice to pro-life. A quote: “But when I took a hard look behind the closed doors of the pro-choice movement, and demanded full information, and acknowledged the dignity of women of all ages (even those not yet born), and asked hard questions about what women’s reproductive freedom really means, that is when I became pro-life.”
Project Life. A way of scrapbooking made easy. I don’t use this method, but I hear many, many wonderful things about it.
5 Things I’ve Learned in the First Year of Being a Mom. Not written by me (I’m not there yet!), but I love many of the things she says. One thing that really hit home with me: “If you happen to look like you’re fourteen years old, they’ll give you even more unsolicited advice (don’t ask me how I know that!). At first, I was offended by this. I wanted to defend my mothering skills (though in fact I often didn’t—and don’t—always feel confident in them). I began to realize, though, that it was my pride that felt the need to insist that I had it all together.”
Lay Me Down By Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman. One of my new faves!
All good stuff!
