Be a Dandelion

The virtual world of blogging is fairly new to me. I am wading in the shallow end, but I'm thoroughly enjoying it. There are several "mommy" blogs I read daily that leave me laughing and reflecting.

One of my favorite daily reads is by a mother of preschool-aged triplets. No, I've never met her (and probably never will), but her thoughtful posts always challenge me to slow down and feed my soul in quieter green pastures then I usually seek out on my own.

I encourage you to read one of her most recent posts:

It will challenge you if you think being successful is achieved by being busy, or if you think that you are "too busy" to give any more of yourself away.

She has three 4-year-olds. I have an empty nest. What is my excuse?

She is creating the time to find joy in the journey. To quote Luke 10:38-42, I think she has "chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her." How does she do it?

Well, I will end quoting Dylan (as in Bob): "The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind."
