i've been doing so much reading lately. i wish it was all from a "fits in my hands perfectly, slightly broken spine, smells old and is juicy enough to make my mouth water" paperback that i can't set down, but it's not. sadly, it's all been found online, which let's face it, is a larger part of my life than i like to admit, so i deal with it.
i'd love to have a name for the things i find and share here, but i don't because it's never the same day of the week, it's never a theme and it's always when my mind is in a wandering mood…which is actually more often than anyone realizes, but that's for another post. so today, i'm going to link up with kim for her friday finds just for fun. see, she has a name for what she shares. ugh, the pressure.
my first find is this article which brought me to tears. if you know me well, you know that glitter can bring me to tears, so an article like this…well bring on the whole box of kleenex or walk away dismissing my very hormonal self. your choice. a friend of mine thought expecting our men to be our rock wasn't quite right and that they should be allowed to be vulnerable, too and i couldn't agree more, but this is a "story" about us…women…so hear me roar. maybe next time they'll write an article about how we're not supposed understand men. snort. like we don't already know that.
then there's this article. i'm not going to say much about this one because i'll end up offending someone and it takes so much work to get my feet out of my mouth once i've gotten them in there, but i will say that if someone has a jeep like david's jeep, and doesn't know what to do with it, my hubby wants it. oh, and by the way, get off of facebook and go outside. see, just like that one foot just jumped right in. ugh.
and last but not least, this post. i don't know much about adoption, but i know a little and after reading this part of their story and her most recent post, i know a whole lot more. if you have more time, read even deeper. what a story they have and her grace through all of it pretty much made me cringe when i think of all the little things that i let bother me.
