I miss me some Greta. Beautiful baby girl! I am a lucky auntie!
I just finished reading, "Carry On Warrior. Thoughts on Life Unarmed" by, Glennon Doyle Melton. I loved it!!!!! Love, love, loved it. Bethany, you would love it, too. If I had not borrowed it from the library (and if it weren't already a week overdue because I couldn't renew because someone else put it on hold), I would totally lend it to you.
Not only is Glennon a terrific writer; but, I also wish she was my friend. Her heartfelt, human and wonderful stories often made me laugh out loud (mostly at the airport in front of my colleagues/friends and LOTS of other people when we were waiting for our delayed flight). Loved it.
I have VERY similar views about God. Eerily similar. Like, I did not know there was anyone in the world that would ever agree with me about my opinions on God and love and religion and faith. And, I was wrong. Glennon agrees. Makes me feel that maybe I am on the right path after all.
I feel like she is a kindred spirit. I have made oodles of mistakes (too many that people don't even know about) and I keep making them (for some reason...oh yeah, because I AM IMPERFECT). I TRY to make smaller mistakes...and, I am constantly trying to improve, do better, heal. I feel good when I am healing and when I KNOW I am healing.
Thanks to Glennon, I feel more brave. Maybe there are some confessions in my future. I want everyone to know how HUGELY IMPERFECT I am (see, www.greenmommusings.blogspot.com for more about my imperfection). I rarely feel that I have all the answers. Oh, wait, I mean, never. I never have the answers. And, that feels good. Meant. To. Be.
So, Glennon Doyle Melton, will you be my friend? If not, that's OK. I have some great friends, a great husband and my wonderful sister, too!
