I am interrupting my regularly planned posts for a special announcement.
I could count on one hand the number of truly serious posts I've ever written in my last four-plus years of blogging.
So when Jocelyn of We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ asked if I would guest post for her annual celebration of the Family Proclamation, I spent a lot of time trying to think of something fun and clever.
It wasn't working out for me so well.
I had had a lot of fun writing a post for her three years ago called, "Family Planning: It's None of Their Business".
But this time I kept coming back to my mom and what she had to offer others. So I wrote a mere breath of her story, the tiniest glimpse of her life. We even went through it together and she insisted that since most people don't know her story, we would only brush over facts without offering details. She was worried about upsetting someone.
I feel a bit nervous, I hope people who read it will see her strength, even if they don't share our religious views.
So as you head over to read my post, I hope you'll remember that it's not my story, but that of the amazing woman who raised me.
