We finished the last chapter of Vicki Courtney’s 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter on July 1st. As much as I enjoyed going through that book with you, I understand that not all of us are mothers of girls, and not all of us are mothers. But, as this is a site for Christian Women, we are mostly women. As such, I’ve decided that the next series in our Writing Worth Reading category should focus simply on womanhood, on being a woman.
One of the things about being a homemaker – especially a homemaker with small children – ESPECIALLY a homemaker with small children and a husband 8,000 miles away (ahem) – is that there is never a break. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, we’re needed, wanted, touched, hung on to, cooking, cleaning, wiping noses, finding toys or shoes or softball gloves.
