Getting It Right

I posted on the theme of learning patience as we accept God's help in correcting our faults at A Prayer of Faith yesterday.

Some Things are Definitely Worth Looking for

Our first stop took us to the home of one of our daughters--an intelligent, beautiful, charming, thirty-eight-year-old woman who has a thriving career in marketing for one of the big housing developers in a Southwestern state.

She would trade that career in a second for the opportunity to be a SAHM of a large family.

Unfortunately, Mr. Right has not yet made an appearance. Her nieces and nephews, as well as young cousins, are the focus of her loving nature, and her new, tastefully decorated home is replete with photos of family, with emphasis on the youngest members.

Mr. Right, wherever you are, your wonderful life-partner is still available. Look for her. Your reward will be well worth the effort.

Wandering in Earnest

My husband and I have begun a road trip which is intended to last about five weeks. He does the driving, and I switch between dozing, listening to the Book of Mormon in Spanish on my personal CD player, listening to classical music on the car CD player, gazing out the window, thinking deep thoughts/meditating/praying, and contributing scintillating comments to intervals of fascinating conversation.
