It probably won’t surprise you to hear that I don’t have much time for the Internet. Writing and keeping up with email — that’s about all I have time for in the few, blessed, kid-less moments I snatch each day.
But there are two blogs that I never miss. The first is Ann Voskamp’s A Holy Experience. And the second is Momastery, the blog written by Glennon Doyle Melton, author of the book Carry On, Warrior (which is well worth a read — I have an extra copy if anyone wants to borrow it).
So, when Glennon Melton invited other writers to share their own “messy, beautiful” stories on her site for a project she’s calling Messy, Beautiful Warriors, it was too good to miss.
And that’s what’s happening tomorrow (April 11)! I’ve written a post called, “And Down Will Come Baby — My Messy, Beautiful.” It’s going to be published here and linked to Momastery. If you’ve been reading The Pickle Patch for a while, you’ll recognize it as a compilation of some of my messiest parenting stories (including the popular, “Holy s*#%t! There was a baby in that stroller?!?” episode), along with new material. I’m proud of it, and humbled to be in the company of some gifted and honest writers. I hope you’ll read it, and check out the other Messy, Beautiful Warrior stories on Momastery.
Thank you, as always, for using your own precious Internet time to read this!
