IN MY LIFE
I was about to say “I had to speak” at a middle school this morning, which is why I’m coming to you late, but instead I choose to say “I got to speak” at a middle school this morning. Let’s just say, as if I didn’t already appreciate middle school teachers enough already, I have an entirely new respect for that population!
I have a sick kid today, which doesn’t help since today is my busiest day of the week, but that’s what being a working mom is all about!
Which reminds me, my friend, Jen Reyneri has written a book called “Reset”. Here is the best synopsis I can give you:
“In Reset, through playful poetic prose and beautiful photography, the author encourages and guides you in this quick read to rethink your status updates beyond a “thumbs up” and to look up and breathe in all the goodness of God’s glory.”
