Good morning, Ladies! I don't even know how to begin to tell you what your letters to Baby Maeryn have meant to my family and me. They'll mean a great deal to Maeryn someday too, so I'm keeping all of them to put in a special album for, along with the snippets of mini-women wisdom from the tweens. You are all fabulous.
And the thing is -- it's not only Maeryn who's going to benefit from the thoughts you've expressed. I think all of us can learn from the insights that surface when a new little person joins the world. So I've decided to start a new series with you here on this blog, called New Real Life: Learning from Maeryn. I'd like for it to be a way to take those insights and weave them in real ways into our lives (mine, too!) A lot of comments about jealousy and uncertainty about the future and confusing boy-thoughts have been coming up, and I think this series can address all of that and more.
So how does that sound to you? I'll start posting tomorrow (I switched you and the tweens this week because they tend to get more restless in my absence! I hope you're not as bummed out as Geneveve -- above -- gets when my attention goes elsewhere!). If you want to post a comment today, tell us what you think -- what do you currently need help with? what topics would you love to have insights on? where would you like to basically start over? I'm excited about this -- but do let me know if it just doesn't resonate with you. After all, this blog's for you.
Speaking of YOUR blogs -- anybody have any new posts for "The Resolution Solution" and "The Blessing Pool?" If you've sent me one and I haven't posted it yet, would you shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org?
"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
