I'd like to take a moment to promote the blog of a long-time friend:
But Just Like That...: The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants
Now, I'm not a mother -- I'm a novelist, a profession I have discovered requires a certain level of selfishness on my part. Selfishness is not really compatible with motherhood, so I'd have to say it's a good thing that God never put a baby in my life. However, this is one of the best-written parenting blogs I've come across. Why? Because when I read it I understand what having a child must really feel like --and that makes her blog truly remarkable.
Thanks, DJ...I admire you and am glad to know you.
