I may start trying to do this. I find a lot of well written thoughts on the various blogs, and usually want to just add a little blurb, so I'll share here.
Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry wrote the most beautiful words about grace and gratitude the other day:
I begin to question myself. Is it something I did? Have I become less of a person? Is my heart not as grateful as it used to be? I hope not but it’s possible. So, I’m watching myself, I’m trying to be careful. I want to live with grace and gratitude, I don’t want to be bitter and wear ugliness on my sleeve and I try to be aware of this at all times but maybe I’ve let it slip past me.
Seriously, go read the whole post. Then read the rest of her site. She is such a sweet woman, and I love getting a little taste of my (sort of) home state that I miss so much.
Mir at Woulda Coulda Shoulda always makes me laugh and cry, usually in one post. She also writes at Off Our Chests, and I loved this post. I struggle with my body image, and I've been trying so hard to change my habits. Having girl children has helped, as I never want them to feel about their bodies like I have about mine, so I bite my tongue so much about my body when they are around.
