Don’t forget to visit Jen and the rest!
Skipped last week. A head cold wiped me out, and I didn’t really feel inspired last Thursday on my sick day in the snow. And then got into work too late Friday morning to post something before clocking in. And then a Valentine’s Day and crazy weekend with the parents. And more snow. So oh well.
Seriously with the snow. It’s like God saying: “Ha ha! You wanted a car, so I will do nothing to keep the scores of inches of white slippery dangerous stuff away from your driving.”
But this week I put my big-girl boots on and came to work and stayed late to avoid traffic during the latest annoyance and was fine.
And yet I still find it pretty and magical and can’t wait to go sledding.
Love is two persons connecting and making choices together about what matters or not; primarily about each other as a person and the character; not about hair or clothes or self-actualization. And sometimes finding love is a matter of the rest of the world being ready and right for you (timing, behavior, choices).
I think I’m going to do Jen’s 7-day blogging link-up! I need to get writing again and get to all those posts I promised.
Special Intention: For Catholic writers. This is not shameless self-promotion. Dorothy Cummings Maclean (aka Auntie Seraphic), author of the soon-to-be-reviewed Ceremony of Innocence, points out here how much those witnessing to the faith through words have to do themselves. http://seraphicsinglescummings.blogspot.com/2014/02/author-as-sales-help.html
Please make it a Friday sacrifice and buy a Catholic book from the publisher directly. They need help too. Speaking of, did you hear about Verily? They’re ending their print edition! Because of lack of funds! 😦
Update 1 pm: YOU CAN GET A FREE COPY! AND OTHER GREAT CATHOLIC BOOKS! http://catholicmom.com/2014/02/20/last-call-win-a-set-of-3-books-from-pauline/
