Today my husband celebrates a big, BIG birthday --
and I'm so lucky and thankful to have spent 
the last sixteen years learning about everything that he loves
the last (almost) twelve years learning about everything that I love about him
the last (almost) five years learning with my daughters why we love our Daddy.

{a gift} #sos

  I read this new book: Grit for Girls and Young Women: Why the Most Difficult Challenges are So Important -- a gift from a dear friend to my daughters. She had no idea what those words did to me. Tears filled my eyes, succumbed to all the emotions of this spring and summer and the year of 2020. Especially, a summer of the not-so-relaxing, let-it-all-go, think-about-nothing kind of summer. But a summer of hearing data, growing concerns, and waiting. waiting. waiting. to hear plans for returning to school this fall. I guess I didn't realize how much I was holding in.  My ten year old daughter, Madison, walked into the room. "This book from Karen is awesome. I can't wait to read it with you. They are full of words that you need to hear, but I guess I did too --"    I caught my breath and asked, "Can I get a hug?" "Why? What's wrong, Mommy?"

When we got ready to “share our bookstacks,” COVID was in full swing and teachers were juggling
