I am a person who is a proponent of giving justice where justice is due. I believe in sharing the minutiae of daily life, in all of its glory.
Hence, I write on this here site.
I would like to give justice to the video clip that I took of my kids dancing in the kitchen on Saturday night.
Nathan woke up Saturday morning complaining of a “sore tummy”. He still wanted to go to church, so we all traipsed to the House of the Lord. Upon returning home he slept for two hours straight. When he awoke, he was burning up. I gave him a tepid bath to bring his raging temperature down. He then emptied the contents of his stomach into my en suite toilet.
I would like to give justice to the second annual Canada Day barbecue that we hosted. Good times were had by all. Or so I am told. I managed to visit with my friends for the hour or so that Nathan felt well. He was almost like his normal self. But not quite.
Nathan started burning up again. He also spewed all over the walkway. I gave him a second tepid bath to bring his temperature down. We watched Transformers while lying under a ceiling fan that was spinning at high speed.
I would like to give a better introduction to one of the most amazing opportunities I have been given lately. Kristin sent out a call for writers at one of the other sites she posts at, and I responded. The site is Work It Mom. The roster of writers over there include many of my favorites, whom I hold in high regard.
Kristin took me up on my willingness to participate and asked if I would write an article about why I am raising my kids with faith. There is another lovely lady who is writing the other side of this topic. As I draft this, I do not know what has been written by her. I do know that I wrote my article on why am raising my kids to be Jesus freaks with a pure motive.
I am not trying to be judgmental, nor argumentative, nor condescending. I am just speaking of my experience, within a precise word limit. I just got the link to the article and can now hit “Publish” on this here post. You can read my side of the debate HERE.
If you are new to my site and want to read the full story about Our House Fire, you can read it HERE. It makes me weep every time I read it. Consider yourself warned.
Nathan is better today, and our family unit plans on keeping ourselves cool at the water park and the lake. Have a good one, folks.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the article, if you could be so kind as to let me know.
