Even though women are supposed to be the superior multitaskers, I can’t figure out how to let her go, catch her, and take a picture all at the same time. Being a widow is harder, but sometimes, being an only parent is harder.

It is hard to grow your blog if you keep forgetting that you have one.

There comes a point when you realize that when Jesus said “Go and do likewise,” he was not referring to achieving national levels of fame before your thirtieth birthday. So it seems that I am off the hook there.
At the height of his fame, Jesus only had 12 confirmed followers and I am not clear on why I should feel obligated to surpass him when I have no intention of saving the world.
