For the record...I truly admire some of the moms I've mentioned in my previous blog entry and am not discrediting anything they are doing within their families. I know that I cannot decide what direction my family life, spiritual life, personal life and homeschool plans take based on someone else's decisions. I too easily let myself fall into this trap. I know that those moms struggle...I know that they don't lead a "perfect" life and I have read blog entries about their bad days. My main point was that I can't feel lousy about myself because my life isn't as "perfect" or organized or "on the ball" as theirs. I need to get over that impulse and take the wisdom and experience they have to share...not as gospel, but as the story of their lives. I am creating, with Christ, my own life story.
So, here's props to the blogger moms...I will keep reading and loving your ideas!
