• "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" --Mary Oliver

  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Wowser's baby. That was a deep post - glad to see you back :). I suppose you could make a case either way, but her story is hard to read ... I'm hoping she was able to find what she wanted by making the choices she did. Although I admit, that doesn't seem to be the point of her comment.

Love the new pic of you and ? Riva???

Great post! Travel certainly is an eye opener.
I'll call :-)
I like the pic too but it's not Riva?

It is Riva :) from one of our jaunts to the beach last year.

The commenter's point seemed to be "how could we criticize the Duggars from protecting their children from the world?" One of the things I've been critical of is the post from Jim Bob Duggar stating that the MEN OF THE HOUSE had a duty to remove magazines and other content from the home which might contaminate the family. Basically, the men should be censors and decide what their family should see or not. I think that's crap. I don't let my kids run free on the internet, but I also allow them to be exposed to information and am present to answer their questions and my take on how they should interpret that information. I would WAY rather my children go into the world prepared to process the barage of media and persuasion that will come their way and be able to recognize what is their voice admist it all. I don't think having information robs you of your innocence- I think going out into the world naive and getting used is what robs you of your innocence. Just my .02 but pretty key to how I approach raising my girls.
